DAYTON -- It's expected that by 2016, nearly 200-million Americans will go shopping online. That could be dangerous if you're shopping for cosmetics. The federal government is issuing new warnings about products you could buy.Women spend millions every year on cosmetics, from anti-aging serums, to moisturizers, and makeup, some of it quite pricey. Dr. Matthew Bakos says, it's a big business right now, especially with all of the anti-aging and beauty products coming out. Skin and beauty expert Paula Provenzano adds, these items represent a lot of money-making potential, so companies that pop up and do counterfeiting will replicate the packaging down to the letter.Put them on the internet for a bargain price, and the savings are pretty attractive. Says Provenzano: if you buy it, y...

CHEJ is featuring a video by LinkTV on the essentially unregulated cosmetics market. Of the 12,000 chemicals currently used by the cosmetics industry 80% are not tested for health impacts such as cancer or reproductive harm. Of the chemicals tested, some known carcinogens such as formaldehyde are allowed to be used in certain consumer care products for both adults and children. While this lack of regulation affects everyone, women are the most impacted because they use the majority of products (10-12 daily). This informative video includes commentary by Mia Davia of BeautyCounter, a company that advocates on behalf of consumers and offers body-safe products.
http://storyofcosmetics.org COMING JULY 21, 2010 -- Major loopholes in U.S. federal law allow the $50 billion beauty industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no monitoring of health effects and inadequate labeling requirements—making cosmetics among the least-regulated consumer products on the market. The Story of Cosmetics employs the Story of Stuff style to examine the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. The film will explore the health implications for consumers, workers, and the environment, and show how we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and toward safer alternatives. The Story of Cosmetics is co-produced with the trailblazing enviro...

Philip Lymbery, Compassion in World Farming’s CEO, discusses the Labelling Matters Campaign. Labelling Matters is a partnership campaign of Compassion in World Farming, RSPCA, Soil Association and Eurogroup for Animals, calling for full and honest food labelling. We believe that all meat and dairy products should be labelled by method of production, to show the conditions in which each animal was reared. Confusing food labels are fundamentally unfair, not only to the countless farm animals whose suffering they conceal, but also to committed higher-welfare farmers whose products often fail to stand out from the crowd. Clear labelling would create confidence for producers wishing to invest in higher welfare farm systems. For more information about the campaign visit labellingmatters.org
Animal testing, it's something that a lot of consumers are against. So many cosmetics companies either provide products that haven't been tested on animals, or they don't do it all together. But in China, regulators there actually make it mandatory for companies to test their products on animals before they can be sold. This creates a big dilemma for these cosmetics makers - do they risk backlash from customers who demand animal-cruelty free, or do they jump in to grab a piece of the Chinese market?
