Clean cosmetics: The science behind the trend
Recently, the coverage of “clean” cosmetics is everywhere. It’s clear that Clean is a hot beauty trend.
The clean cosmetics movement seems to have arisen from frustration over regulatory oversight of cosmetics.
Activist groups took matters into their own hands by classifying certain ingredients found in commercial cosmetic and personal care products as harmful and not suitable for topical use. Brands and retail stores followed suit; some sell only clean products, while others have developed specialty lines of clean products.
Each proponent of this movement has developed their own short list of “bad” ingredients. The majority of these chemicals fall into one or more of three major categories: irritants or allergens; potential endocrine disruptors; and potential carcinogens.
The clean cosmetics movement definitely inspires consumers taking a closer look at what we put on our skin, which is a good news. But does Clean Beauty have Scientific supporting evidences?
Is it really scientifically necessary to avoid those “bad” ingredients under a very low-dose topical exposure to human being? And more importantly, how to develop cosmetic products under those restrictions? Is Green Beauty equal to Clean?
What do scientists say?
In this Cosmotalk Section, experts will share their viewpoints via panel discussion, to explore the turth of Clean Beauty.
