Revlon is under fire for Cancer Causing Chemicals in Makeup

Revlon is under fire for Cancer Causing Chemicals in Makeup

Just one more sound reason to research and take control over what you put on your skin. Even though I find this article interesting I would still want to see that data they are using to make the claims against the various ingredients. For example: Parabens. The last research I looked at did not have anything definitive.

  1. The fact that the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is involved is already an indication that this is nothing but media hype. The safety of parabens has been established time and time again. Isobutylparaben and isopropylparaben are under study and as a result of this, no one in the industry has been using them for years. Ethylparaben, methylparaben, butylparaben and propylparaben have been tested and retested and pronounced safe (again) in 2010.

    1. Hi Lise,
      There are certainly many in the business that feel the same as you regarding some of the agencies that are pushing for these changes.
      Hence the need to always make sure that what you are reading supplies valid references with links for what they have to say. If you click on the link in the article “paraben” it goes to the FDA site that says exactly what you have said:)
      Good to hear from you!

      1. Thanks Rebecca – Sorry if I sounded “preachy”. I get a lot of questions and comments about much of the misinformation the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and other fearmongers have helped spread – it frustrates me that scaring people with misinformation seems to get the headlines while facts are often never even mentioned. Thanks for letting me ‘rant’. šŸ™‚
