9780963563538: Dying to Look Good : The Disturbing Truth About What's Really in Your Cosmetics, Toiletries and Personal Care Products

Who would expect that making a profit would be more important than people's health and their lives? Yet, this is exactly the case in the cosmetics industry. Cosmetics and toiletries are laden with toxic chemicals, many carcinogenic. Makeup, hair coloring products, baby powder, shaving cream, mouthwash and toothpaste are just a few of the products that contain cancer-causing ingredients. Even products that are supposed to be gentle and mild for babies often contain toxic, irritating chemicals.

Dying to Look Good tells you if the cosmetic and personal care products you're buying contain dangerous ingredients. It reveals what manufacturers don't want you to know about their products and shows you how to find the truth behind deceptive product packaging. You will learn how to confidently read labels so you know how safe your cosmetics and toiletries are.

This book classifies over 1200 cosmetic ingredients according to safety, whether they may cause allergic reactions, whether they have been reviewed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel and if they are approved or recognized as safe by the FDA. It also lists over 750 cosmetic and personal care products that have been evaluated as "safe." In just seconds, you can find out if an ingredient in the product you're buying is harmful and you can identify safer products for yourself and your family.

From the Author:

Do you know what's in the make-up or the shaving cream you put on your face every day? What about the lotion you put on your skin or on your baby? Or the bubble bath you let your kids soak in? Or even the soap your family uses to bathe or the toothpaste you use to brush your teeth?

Many of the ingredients in the cosmetics, toiletries and personal care products you use every day are harmful. Studies have found that nearly 50% of cosmetic products evaluated were contaminated with the cancer-causing chemical 1,4-dioxane. Cosmetics, toiletries and personal care products do not require FDA approval before they are sold to the public. A harmful product can only be removed from the market if the FDA can prove in a court of law that the product is harmful, improperly labeled or violates the law.

Most products are labeled to "sell" rather than to provide accurate information about the product. Terms like natural and hypoallergenic do not have official definitions, so the manufacturers can use them to mean anything they want. This often leads to misleading information about the product on the label.

You need to read labels more today than ever before! Because of increasing consumer awareness about healthy products, manufacturers are designing packaging to make it look like the product inside the package is healthy and made from natural ingredients. But if you read and interpret the ingredients on the label, there's a very good chance that you'll find that is not the case. Many of the ingredients added to cosmetics and toiletries are harmful or inadequately tested.

So, be sure that the cosmetic and personal care products you're using are healthy. With this book, you will discover how quick and easy it is to tell if the products you're buying contains dangerous ingredients and to find products that are safe and healthy to use.

You can't depend on the FDA or the manufacturers to make sure the products you buy are safe. It's up to you! Protect your family's health. Don't go shopping without this book.

From the Back Cover:

Buyer Beware!

The cosmetics industry is very poorly regulated. Many of the ingredients in the cosmetics, toiletries and personal care products we use every day are harmful. Some cause cancer.

Most products are labeled to "sell" rather than to provide accurate information about the product. Terms like natural and hypoallergenic do not have official definitions, so the manufacturers can use them to mean anything they want. This often leads to misleading information about the product on the label.

"Some people will do anything to look good in their coffins. ... Every person who uses cosmetics - male or female - should have this book when they go shopping, or look up the products they are currently using."
Lendon Smith, M.D.
