Derma Correct

by Jerome Princy (2020-01-10)

Much of what is placed on Derma Correct Review the skin is toxic and even though we know through scientific studies that 50% to 70% can and will be absorbed into the body, the Cosmetic Industry claims that small exposures to these toxic ingredients cause no harm. They actually say that it is safe to use toxic (poison) chemicals linked to cancer, infertility, birth defects, and other health problems, because the amount in each product is so small. The problem is twofold. No one uses just one product in a single day and no one knows the cumulative effect when these toxic ingredients have been used for decades. Just think about the products one uses every day, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorants, body lotions, shaving creams, cleansers, moisturizers, and on and on the list goes. This exposes each person to literally hundreds of these toxic chemicals daily and this will have a negative effect over time. Of the 10,500 ingredients in cosmetic products, only 11% have been tested for safety, and this over a 30 year period of self-policing. The Cosmetic Industry is self-regulated. There is no government agency that tests products, pre or post-market. What that should tell you is that the industry is unregulated, or a better term might be self-regulated. And, because it is unregulated, it has been discovered that thirty-three percent of personal care products contain at least one chemical linked to cancer. Forty-five percent contain ingredients that can effect the reproductive system and development of an infant. Sixty percent of products contain chemicals that can disrupt hormones. All of this information can be found on the website for The Campaign For Safe Cosmetics.
