Did you ever wonder if your skincare is as safe as it first appears?
Despite most of us using multiple skincare products every day, there is a surprising lack of laws about what can be in them and what cannot. Despite the FDA making sure to have regulations in place, there are a lot of additives that have been labeled as carcinogens that are still used in skincare products, even if they are known.
One of the best ways to make sure that there are no ingredients that are linked to developing cancer in the products that you are using is to read the ingredients list! Yet, it can be really confusing with how specialized the terms are, and not everyone has the time to sit down and memorize lists of chemical terms. We’ve gathered some of the most common ones here to make it easier to find them and understand why they’re so dangerous!
Do your skincare products contain any of these carcinogens?
