ABSTRACT
The article reports on the findings of a report by the Environmental Working Group regarding the safety of cosmetics sold in the U.S. The nonprofit organization found out that hundreds of cosmetics sold in the U.S., contain chemicals the industry itself has determined to be unsafe, even when used as directed. These chemicals have been banned by other countries and include hydrogen peroxide in contact lens cleaners sold in the U.S., formaldehyde in mascara, selenium in shampoo and moisturizer and lead acetate in hair coloring.
