The cosmetics industry rakes in billions of dollars each year. Americans are incredibly devoted to their skin. In particular, they are devoted to the idea of having young, healthy skin. As such, millions of Americans apply layer upon layer of various cosmetics to their skin every day and at night. But what the majority of these people are unaware of is that the substances they are putting on their skin may contain dangerous toxins.
Anything placed on the skin can be easily absorbed and even enter the bloodstream. If you or someone you love has suffered from an illness you believe to be related to a toxic cosmetic product, contact your Iowa lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 today.
Ingredients to Watch Out For
It is important that anyone who wears cosmetics is aware of the necessity of carefully scouring each and every ingredient listed in every cosmetic that they may potentially put on their bodies or faces. They should also know what types of chemicals they should be on the lookout for.
Some of these potentially dangerous chemicals include:
- Petrolatum-also referred to as petroleum jelly
- Methyl, Propyl, Butyl, and Ethyl Paraben-preservatives used to extend shelf life.
- Diethanolamine(DEA), Triethanolamine(TEA)-can be toxic over a period of time.
