Take Toxins Out of Personal-Care Products
- Issue: Most consumers would be surprised to learn that the government does not require health studies or pre=market testing for cosmetics and other personal care products before they are sold. In fact, 89 percent of the 10,500 ingredients used in-personal care products have not been evaluated for safety. In 2004, the European Union banned potentially dangerous substances from cosmetics, but in the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration does not regulate the field.
