Canadian Cosmetics Need a Makeover
You can't help but use the pun when these stories come up. The David Suzuki Foundation issued a report today saying that Canada needs stronger rules to keep toxic chemicals out of personal care products. The study asked 6200 consumers to inspect ingredient lists for 12 sets of potentially harmful chemicals used in cosmetics. Almost 80% of the products reportedly contained at least one of these dozen ingredients and more than half of all products reportedly contained multiple ingredients.
Pretty scary stuff.
