The cosmetics industry has a colorful past of using unhealthy chemicals, and misusing animal testing. Transparency about what is in cosmetics and how they were created should be a must.

the problem
Nature and Context

By increasing awareness in the potentially toxic chemicals used in cosmetics, we can encourage responsible consumption and self awareness. There are over 80,000 chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products. Of these chemicals, only 20% have been tested, and very few are restricted or banned. Currently there’s no pre-market testing required for most products.
