DR. PAUL THOMPSON/ DANGEROUS MAKEUP
Makeup is one of the least regulated products on the market. Some of the ingredients, such as fragrances and other chemicals added, are not documented. If you thought the FDA was watching out for you, well you would be wrong. The FDA only regulates color additives in makeup and to get them to be more involved would take an act of Congress.
There is a Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board, but, it is made up of manufacturers and looks at a very small percentage of products. They have been known to do a questionable job at best. For example, the FDA looked into lipstick after an article called the Poison Kiss was published. It took two years, and an article was released in the Journal of Cosmetic Science revealing that the majority of lipstick brands (400 tested) contained lead at a level that was 10x the safe level reported 5 years earlier in the campaign for safe lipstick.
Bottom line, until there are better policing on cosmetics, there are simple things you should do:
1) Makeup Vacation
Take a “makeup vacation” every few days. Give your face, and skin, a rest. A good trainer will remind you to take one or two days off from exercise a week, your skin is no different.
2) Don’t Milk Your Makeup
Watch expiration dates and throw it out when it expires. Expired makeup is not only less useful, it is more dangerous.
Would you drink expired milk?
3) It’s Bad to Share
Don’t share your makeup! Bad enough it may have toxins in it, you don’t want to add viruses and bacteria from others. So many of the tools used to apply makeup are made with the goal of saving or utilizing the most of the product you are applying. That means they have the capacity to save the toxins your best girlfriend may have.
4) You Get What You Pay For
Use the highest quality makeup you can afford and look for documentation of testing of ingredients
5) Bathroom isn’t Your Storage Room
Don’t store your makeup in the bathroom at home. Each time the toilet is flushed, bacteria is aerosolized and can be contaminating your makeup.
