Dying To Look Good Excerpt #9

Hair coloring products are among the most poorly regulated consumer products. There is no requirement to place a warning on the label of hair coloring products to inform consumers that these products cause cancer. Although the industry maintains that hair dyes are safe, there is a growing body of scientific evidence pointing to an increased risk of bladder cancer and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma associated with the use of permanent hair dyes.

If you just can't live with your natural hair color, find out which hair coloring products are safe in DYING TO LOOK GOOD.

Dying To Look Good Excerpt #8

Cosmetic and personal care product manufacturers are not required to prove the claims they make about their products or to test their products for safety. However, if the product's safety has not been established, the product requires the label to state: "WARNING: The safety of this product has not been determined." According to EWG in their evaluation, they did not find a single product with this warning on the label.

Note: The absence of the warning from all labels does not mean that the industry is doing their job and proving their products are safe. They are just ignoring the requirement to place the warning on the label. You can find out why this is the case in Dying To Look Good.

Dying To Look Good Excerpt #7

... the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act requires cosmetic manufacturers to list the ingredients on the label of every cosmetic and personal care product sold directly to consumers in descending order of quantity. In other words, the ingredient present in largest quantity appears first on the label and the ingredient present in the smallest quantity appears last.

Protect your health. Start reading labels on your cosmetics and personal care products and choose products with only safe ingredients.

Dying To Look Good Excerpt #6

The cosmetics industry is very poorly regulated. The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act does not require cosmetics and personal care products or their ingredients to be approved before they are marketed and sold to consumers. FDA regulations start after they are already in the marketplace. So, except for color additives and a few ingredients, which are banned, manufacturers may use whatever ingredients they choose in the cosmetics and personal care products they produce without approval from the FDA.

Healthy Skin Care Products

A lot of skin care products on the market claim to be all natural and contain healthy ingredients, but if you read the ingredients list, you'll find that's not the case. Most will contain at least one or two objectionable ingredients, usually more.

Even many companies who have signed the Compact for Global Production of Safe and Healthy Beauty Products use ingredients in their products that are undesirable.

Excerpts from Dying To Look Good #1

"Your health is affected not only by what you put into your body in terms of food, drink, drugs and nutritional supplements, but also by what you put on your body. Your skin is not an impenetrable barrier as was thought years ago. We now know that all chemicals that come in contact with the skin can penetrate the skin in varying degrees.
