Avoid Harmful Ingredients Found In Beauty Products
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A growing concern for harmful chemicals in
personal care products has many interest groups alarmed. The New Jersey Public Interest Group
is among those worried about possible harmful chemicals in beauty and
personal care products. According to these interest groups, certain dangerous
chemicals have not been sufficiently tested by the FDA. These chemicals
are not only dangerous but have been linked to negative health effects
such as cancer.
The NJPIRG randomly checked labels of personal care and beauty products
and then compared the ingredients to scientific studies. A surprise ingredient
has the group alarmed. This warning may surprise you. The dangerous ingredient
is simply listed as “fragrance.” The International Fragrance
Association reported the listing of fragrant on a label could mean 3,000
different chemicals. Manufacturers do not want the public to know what
is a "fragrant."
The NJPIRG is also looking out for parabens, commonly found in moisturizers.
Recent studies have linked parabens to hormone disruption. Phthalates,
commonly found in colognes, have been linked to sperm damage. The NJPIRG
advises discontinuing the use of sodium laureth sulfate, commonly found
in shampoo. It is a harmful byproduct.
The NJPIRG urges consumers to read labels carefully. If you find a chemical
of concern in a product you use, you can easily switch to another natural
option, To read the full NJPIRG list of harmful chemicals in beauty and
