The Dangers of Mineral Makeup and What You Should do about it.

Tom Mower, the Chief Science Officer and Founder of Sisel International posted an article on Facebook, “HYPOCRISY OF THE SKIN & HAIR CARE INDUSTRY REVEALED… TIME AFTER TIME, AGAIN & AGAIN.”

According to his post,  Sun Chemical, announced the launch of their new Intenza Glitter Effects.  Tom has issued his very strong opinion, and perhaps a warning to those who use this product and other products like it. 

Are there other dangers in cosmetics?

According to to an article that appeared in ModernMom there are plenty.

Modern Mom suggests that “Before applying mineral makeup on your skin, be aware of the hazards it poses and decide for yourself whether the benefits outweigh the risks.”

So what are the dangers of mineral makeup?

In February 2010, Dr. Mehmet Oz, a cardio-thoracic surgeon known simply as Dr. Oz, with shows that air on television and online, warned his viewers about the dangers of mica present in mineral makeup. Over time, according to Dr. Oz, mica can cause scarring, inflammation and lung disease in people who use it often.

Dr. Oz warned his audience that the Food and Drug Administration does not regulate what goes into personal products such as mineral makeup; therefore, it is up to the consumers to take the necessary precautions when applying mineral makeup.

The article points out there are other dangers a consumer must be aware of such as the Dangers of Titanium Dioxide (International Agency for Research on Cancer, or IARC, recently classified titanium oxide as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen, which may cause cancer to humans) and Bismuth Oxichloride which is categorized as a low hazard.

From my point of view many of the products we consume on a daily basis like toothpaste, mouthwash, cosmetics, skin and hair care, are swimming in toxins that are hazardous to health. in the short run, these products may be good for your ego, and you think you are doing the right things… however, over the long run damage to your skin will be self evident.
