Sinopsis: 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 and personal care products 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 cosmetics 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 1300 cosmetic and personal care product 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" and where you can buy them, with web addresses and phone numbers. 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: Shopping for cosmetics and personal care products is hazardous to your health ... if you’re not reading and interpreting every label on every package you buy. Virtually all cosmetics and personal care products contain chemical ingredients. If you buy your toiletries, even from a health food store, you still need to read labels more today than ever before!

Because of increasing consumer awareness, manufacturers are designing packages to make it look like ingredients inside the package are plant derived, natural and healthy. But if you read and interpret the ingredients on the label, you're likely to find that’s not the case.

Many ingredients added to cosmetics and personal care products are harmful. In fact, cosmetics and toiletries are the least regulated products on the market. As long as manufacturers don't use toxic substances that have been banned, they’re free to use whatever ingredients they want and market their products without testing them and without FDA approval.

The FDA can make suggestions or recommendations to manufacturers about cosmetic products or their ingredients, but manufacturers DO NOT have to comply. The FDA must first prove in a court of law that a product is harmful, improperly labeled, or violates the law if it wants to remove a cosmetic product from the market. According to John Bailey, Ph.D., director of the FDA’S Office of Cosmetics and Colors, "Consumers believe that 'if it's on the market, it can't hurt me,' and this belief is sometimes wrong."

Your health, your family’s health, the very quality of your lives is on the line here. You need to take action. The FDA is not going to protect you. Neither is anybody else. It’s up to you.

This new edition of DYING TO LOOK GOOD will not only help you identify the harmful ingredients in personal care products, but also help you choose healthy products. It gives you the resources to identify healthy products and where to buy them.
