Cosmetics basically contains fragrance and preservatives which can harm user in many ways such as skin allergy, rashes and small dots over the skin. Without preservative it will not last longer.
Before buying any cosmetics check its ingredients and prefer Herbal one.

Fragrances and preservatives are the main ingredients in cosmetics. Fragrances are the most common cause of skin problems. More than 5,000 different kinds are used in products. Products marked "fragrance-free" or "without perfume" means that no fragrances have been added to make the product smell good.

Preservatives in cosmetics are the second most common cause of skin problems. They prevent bacteria and fungus from growing in the product and protect products from damage caused by air or light. But preservatives can also cause the skin to become irritated and infected. Some examples of preservatives are:

•paraben
•imidazolidinyl urea
•Quaternium-15
•DMDM hydantoin
•phenoxyethanol
•formaldehydeThe ingredients below cannot be used, or their use is limited, in cosmetics. They may cause cancer or other serious health problems.

•bithionol
•mercury compounds
•vinyl chloride
•halogenated salicyanilides
•zirconium complexes in aerosol sprays
•chloroform
•methylene chloride
•chlorofluorocarbon propellants
•hexachlorophene

What voluntary steps are cosmetic manufacturers taking to provide cosmetic safety and protect consumers?


Consumer safety is the number one priority for cosmetic and personal care products companies, and manufacturers are committed to upholding strict FDA regulations as required by the U.S. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). The law requires that every cosmetic and personal care product and its ingredients be substantiated for safety before going to market, and that they contain no prohibited ingredients. Cosmetic companies take their safety responsibility very seriously and often surpass the requirements of the law with additional consumer safety measures.

Consumers must have confidence in the products they buy and use each day. Toward that end, cosmetic and personal care products companies invest substantial resources in scientific research and safety processes to ensure the safety of their products. Companies work with and employ thousands of chemists, toxicologists, biologists, environmental scientists and other experts to evaluate the safety of cosmetic products before they go to market.

As a result, of the more than 11 billion personal care products sold each year in the United States, there are very few adverse experiences reported to the FDA in a typical year, and of those reported, most are related to rashes or allergies. Cosmetic companies' strong commitment to safety has made cosmetic and personal care products the safest product category regulated by the FDA.
