Top Ten Cosmetic Ingredients to Avoid

There are many ingredients in cosmetics that can cause harm to your skin and even your health. Some harmful ingredients could even cause cancer, hormonal imbalances (endocrine disruptors), and respiratory issues, to name a few. As of August of 2020, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act does not require cosmetic products and ingredients to be approved by FDA before they go on the market, except for certain color additives in some hair dyes. Scary, right?

Which ingredients should you be sure to steer clear of? The top ten are sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic colors, fragrance, lead, formaldehyde, triclosan, toluene, and talc. So when you pick up that latest mascara or blush, make sure you flip over the box to read the ingredients.
