The skin care industry is huge- in fact it is over$ 50 Billion in sales in 2018 and growing rapidly. Most industry observers project it to grown another 20 Billion by the year 2025. However, not all skin care products are created equally. Did you know that in the U.S. the industry is largely unregulated? How does that affect us as consumers? You might be interested to know that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) only bans 30 chemicals that cannot be used in skin care products. These include your makeup, lotions, serums, creams, etc. Whereas the European Union bans 1328 chemicals from being used in skin care products! Included in the vast majority of skin care products in America are known toxic ingredients. Have you ever looked on the label of your skin care products only to find a long list of ingredients that you cannot even pronounce- folks, those are chemicals.
