Find Out About Dangerous Chemical Ingredients in Anti Aging Skin Products and Cosmetics

There's dangerous ingredients in anti aging skin care products and cosmetics.

That's a frightening statement. Unfortunately it's true. In the US a wide range of skin care products, anti aging products, cosmetics, personal and beauty products such as soaps, shampoos, deodorants and toothpastes contain dangerous chemical ingredients.

Many of these ingredients have not been tested for safety on people. Many come from the distillation of crude oil, meaning that they are a petrochemical. Many of these have been linked to a wide range of health problems. Some are even known to cause cancer.

It might amaze you that in a country such as ours a massive industry such as this puts dangerous chemical ingredients in it's products and puts the health and safety of the citizens of the country at risk. Unfortunately it's true.

Many of the ingredients used in so many of these products such as our anti aging skin products and so much more are banned in Europe but are allowed in our products in the US.

The problem is so bad that there are now organisations set up to attempt to fight this proliferation of chemical ingredients in our personal products. Two of better known are the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and Teens Turning Green. Both have websites you can find on a quick Google search, and both highlight the possible risks of using so many of the every day products you probably have in your bathroom right now.

The problem stems from the fact that our government makes no serious effort to regulate what goes into these products. The FDA is not required to satisfy itself that any of the ingredients in these types of products are safe. And big business being what it is if they can get away with it they will. These products generate many billions of dollars every year.

Organisations such as the two I have mentioned are fighting a long uphill battle to attempt to reverse the problem. They are fighting hard.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is due to release a 7 minute video highlighting the problem. They have already released a short teaser video however I expect the long version to be very revealing.

So keep an eye out for a new video about dangerous cosmetics and anti aging products, and watch it right through when it's available.
