BlissPlan.com Offers One Year Of Free Instruction On Healthy Skin Care
SUMMARY: With horrifying diseases thriving in our society, the need to reduce chemicals and toxins in human life has never been more critical. The skin care product industry is riddled with untested ingredients and consumers need to be educated to avoid these substances. The goal of BlissPlan.com’s one year of free education on skin care is to help buyers be healthier and know what products are safe.
Lilburn, Georgia. August 28, 2009 - Most consumers aren’t aware that the government does not regulate or require testing of the ingredients used in skin care products. The FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors states, “… a cosmetic manufacturer may use almost any raw material as a cosmetic ingredient and market the product without an approval from FDA”. The level of toxicity in any ingredient is determined by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) panel which is operated by the skin care industry and participation is voluntary.
“There are approximately 10,500 different ingredients used in skin care and beauty products,” explains Sydney Johnston, CEO of BlissPlan.com. “89% of those components have never been evaluated for safety. And the toxicity of these products varies. The human skin absorbs only tiny amounts of some ingredients - while others are quickly absorbed into the blood vessels to be carried throughout the body. That’s why we’re giving away a year’s worth of free information about healthy skin care, hoping to educate folks to be wise in their choice of products.”
In a six month study, the Environmental Working Group analyzed 7,500 skin care and cosmetics products and reported that only a mere 28 of those were completely assessed for safety by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review group. This means that 7,472 contain at least one - and usually many more - ingredients whose safety has never been evaluated.
Some people scoff at the idea that these products might be dangerous because we use relatively small amounts on our skin. But most people use multiple products every day, so the risk can be high. A survey of 2,300 people, conducted as part of the Environmental Working Group research, indicates that the average adult uses nine personal care products each day, containing 126 unique chemical ingredients. The truth is that no one - no one - has any idea what these toxins are doing to the human body.
