Title: Why are Personal Care Products Potentially Harmful

Why are Personal Care Products Potentially
Harmful?
Many formulations contain harmful ingredients
that have extremely small molecules. These
molecules penetrate the skin and the blood system
and quickly build up in the organs and tissues.

Senator Kennedy
CONCERNED
Concerns were expressed by Senator Kennedy at
hearings on the 1997 FDA cosmetics reform bill.
"Our message is that cosmetics can be dangerous
to your health. --The American people have a
right to full and fair information about the
actual and potential dangers of the products they
use every day."

Toxic Ingredients
Why are toxins carcinogens not disclosed on
personal care product labels?
Ingredients of cosmetics and personal care
products (CPCP) are generally identified on their
labels by a long list of chemicals. However, this
is meaningless to the overwhelming majority of
consumers, let alone to expert toxicologists and
cancer prevention professionals. This
critically necessitates a Red Flag warning of
the wide range of multiple carcinogenic
ingredients, contaminants and precursors in most
mainstream industry products.

In September 10, 1997 hearings on the FDA reform
bill (HR 1411), Senator Edward M. Kennedy stated
"The cosmetic industry has borrowed a page from
the playbook of the tobacco industry by putting
profits ahead of public health."

With rare exceptions, such as childrens bubble
baths, the FDA has never required industry to
label PCC products with any warning of
well-documented toxic or cancer risks, nor has it
banned the sale of unsafe products to an
unsuspecting public.

Talc Women, in the IR reproductive years,
regularly dusting their genital area with Talc
after bathing or showering are at approximately
3-fold increased risk of developing ovarian
cancer.
Permanent hair color Women using permanent or
semi-permanent black or dark brown hair dyes are
at increased risk for non-Hodgkins lymphoma,
multiple myeloma, chronic leukemia, and also
breast cancer. In fact,
there is growing evidence that
use of these
hair dyes accounts for about 20 of all

non-Hodgkins lymphomas in U.S. women.

Beef Frankfurters Children eating up to about a
dozen each month are at approximately 4-fold
increased risk of brain cancer 7-fold increased
risk of Leukemia. (This is due to the formation
of a nitrosamine carcinogen, by the interaction
of nitrite, used in colorant, and natural amines
in meat).

OSHA analyzed 2,983 chemicals used in personal
care products and found 884 of them to be toxic.
  • 778 can cause acute toxicity
  • 218 can cause reproductive complications
  • 314 can cause biological mutations
  • 146 can cause tumors
  • 376 can cause skin and eye irritations

Concerns on the cancer risks from PCC products
are emphasized by lifelong use of multiple
products by the majority of the U.S. population
the ready skin absorption of carcinogenic
ingredients, further increased by detergents,
especially when left on the skin for prolonged
periods and by decades-long suppression of
information by the FDA and industry, abetted by a
roll-over media, in flagrant denial of consumers
right to know. Mainstream industry products thus
pose major risks of avoidable cancer. Samuel
S. Epstein, M.D., undisclosed Carcinogens in
Cosmetics and Personal Care Products pose
avoidable risks of Cancer warns Samuel Epstein,

  • Oral Contraceptives
  • Estrogen replacement therapy (high doses
    prolonged use)
  • Premenopausal mammography
  • Non-hormonal prescription drugs

  • Silicone gel breast implants (polyyurethane foam)

So for all these reasons, it must be emphasized
that cosmetics personal care products are one
of the most important, if not the single most
important, causes of avoidable and involuntary
lifelong exposure to multiple carcinogens.

Personal care products produced for beauty
without concern for the long term effect on the
user need to be eliminated!
Take action now by eliminating them from your use
and replace them with safe products.
