Some of the ingredients in personal care products are not ideal.
"Clean Beauty" products list supposedly ethical qualities ranging from cruelty-free to fragrance-free to formaldehyde-free. But without regulations to back up the word "clean", the term "clean beauty" could be greenwashed.
People have always believed that beauty products are safe because they could buy them at the store. Yet, additives like long-chain carbons (PFAS), phthalates, and triclosan can disrupt hormones, and formaldehyde found in shampoos and keratin treatments is carcinogenic.
Because these products cannot be assumed safe, it has sparked a movement geared towards getting rid of controversial ingredients in our personal products.
There is no uniform meaning of "clean beauty" and no rules regulating it, which means that one company will define clean beauty differently from another company.
One "clean" foundation product could cause allergies and reproductive toxicity, while another foundation from a "clean beauty" company could receive an EWG stamp of approval for safety. But not all companies disclose everything, and you can only go so far if companies are not transparent about everything.
Various scandals have come to light over the years, but the FDA doesn't have the authority to intervene in personal products. Johnson & Johnson knew for over 40 years that their talc baby powder contained asbestos. If shampoo causes people's hair to fall out, the company doesn't have to share that information.
Any company can call itself "clean." It becomes a question of why anyone cannot simply walk into a store to buy a safe product.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
