"FDA does not approve cosmetics, although we do approve color additives used in cosmetics. It is the responsibility of cosmetic manufacturers to ensure, before marketing their products, that the products are safe when used as directed in their label or under customary conditions of use." http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/Transparency/Basics/ucm194552.htm
Sooooo.... who is making sure these cosmetic manufacturers are ensuring the safety of their products? Of course they are gonna cut corners where they can and downplay results..
We could be putting on all sorts of carcinogens, chemicals, pesticides, toxins, etc. and not even know it. Why isn't the general public more concerned about this? Why isn't there an agency to prevent this?
