The Cosmetic Chemicals Guide
What you should know before you buy
Tamara L Laschinsky
Traditional as well as 'natural' products contain a variety of chemical ingredients that are deemed to be a 'human health priority'. Understanding how to read labels and recognize potentially harmful ingredients is key to choosing safer products for you and your family.
The Cosmetic Chemicals Guide is a reference book to help consumers understand about the harmful chemicals used in most cosmetics and personal care products.
Most bath, baby and personal care products contain ingredients that are linked to health conditions like eczema, hormonal disruption and cancer. Consumers try to shop for safe products but reading labels is confusing and some harmful ingredients may not even appear on the product labels.
This book is designed to help consumers understand what other names chemicals may go under, which chemical ingredients are likely to be contaminated and how they can find safer products. It also helps consumers learn more and tap into databases for further information.
