Lies on the labels of makeup
Most of the claims of the front of packages of makeup mean absolutely nothing. This is what you need to know to cut through the marketing jargon
“Fat free”, “100% natural” or “long life”. Chances are you’ve seen these words on the labels of makeup and maybe even persuade you have left to buy something because of these statements.
Unfortunately, most of them do not mean much and even those that are technically accurate can be misleading. That’s partly because the FDA does not regulate what goes into cosmetics. And while there are guidelines for labeling, there is no review process in place.
Most industry experts believe it is a good thing and if smaller brands had to jump through hoops countless FDA, most would not even on the market and much less would be a success.
However, the lack of regulation also means that the responsibility falls on consumers. It is our responsibility to see through the language of the labels and understand what we are putting on our faces. Staying ahead of the most important things you should know when reading a label distribution.
Most of the valuable information that is not on the front or anywhere in the product name is due to the language of marketing designed to get us to buy the product, if you really understand what happens in a formula, the list of ingredients is the best place to start and you may want to take a chemistry course before you start.
In this case, we are decoding what the claims on the labels really mean to make it easier to understand what you’re really putting on your skin.
Most people who are prone to acne breakouts are adamant about the base or if the spell had oil because they believe that fat will make your acne worse. And now many companies of beauty are making versions “oil free”, even the blush blush and eye shadow, especially for these women. However, most dermatologists agree that after printing “oil” on the label is mostly a marketing gimmick.
Just because you see “SPF” does not mean you’re safe
It’s great that so many companies are adding sunscreen in makeup because everyone can benefit more daily with SPF. But there are two very different types of sun protection ingredients, chemists and physicists working in opposite directions. The physical sunscreen acts as a barrier on the skin to reflect UV rays. Meanwhile, the chemicals absorb UV rays create free radicals in the skin.
“Natural” means nothing
In all the confusion about beauty tips, natural and organic products could be the worst offenders. “Requirements of the FDA say there is only 20 percent that use natural ingredients to say that a product is really natural.”
