Why “Clean” Beauty Is Important
By: E. Morgan
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, many people have started to think about the sanitary aspect of their skincare in a way like never before. Many individuals have been routinely sanitizing handles, social distancing, and applying monstrous amounts of hand sanitizer. However, one aspect of our hygiene that often goes overlooked is our skincare.
According to the Environmental Working Group, the US has not passed a law in regards to the regulation of personal care and cosmetics since June 25, 1938. In the following years over 80,000 new ingredients/ chemicals have been launched into the forefront of the latest products hitting the market. A slim 10% of these agents have been tested for human safety. Although it is impossible to label serious health complications to one factor, the rates of cancer, asthma, allergies, and autism have dramatically escalated within the last couple of years and research indicates toxic chemicals play a role. In most situations, a single application is not likely to cause harm but over time slight amounts add up. In short, what we put on our skin matters.
