Cosmetics Could Be Causing Adverse Reactions?
If you’ve been reacting to a new face cream, lipstick or another cosmetic product, you are not alone. Given the amount of oversight we deal with in all areas of our lives, it is surprising to discover that there is almost no government oversight in the billion-dollar-a-year cosmetic industry. This lack of government oversight creates problems in tracking the growing number of potentially dangerous reactions to cosmetics. A new study says reports of adverse reactions to cosmetics and personal care products more than doubled to nearly 1,600 complaints between 2015 and 2016. Dr. Tara Narula joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss how to avoid potentially harmful products and how to report an adverse incident. This is interesting and makes it clear – check your cosmetics for harmful chemicals, dyes, and fillers which could harm sensitive skin.
