[Alert] Cosmetics Causing HORRIFYING Injuries
Elisha had no idea that a simple shower could trigger the worst pain of her life.
She turned on the water and lathered up… but within seconds, it felt like her scalp was on fire!
When she tried to rinse the shampoo from her hair, it only got worse. Her hair had literally fused together… like a matted dog.
And as horrifying as Elisha’s experience was, she’s not alone.
Serious injuries from cosmetic products are now reaching record levels. People are experiencing horrific burns, serious allergic reactions… and their hair is even falling out.
It’s a problem our government has known about – and ignored – for years.
But there are two things you can do right now to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
The cosmetics industry is practically printing money these days.
It’s raking in $62 BILLION a year selling make-up, shampoos, aftershaves, deodorants… you name it.
But this “beauty industry” has an ugly side that most of us have never been warned about.
According to research from Northwestern University, serious reactions caused by cosmetics and personal products more than doubled from 2015 to 2016.
I’m talking about burns… rashes… hair loss… and just about anything else you can imagine.
Even worse, this is probably just the tip of the iceberg – most reactions are never reported.
So where did these Northwestern scientists get this terrifying data?
From our own government, of course. That’s right – the FDA actually has a database of all the injuries that these products have caused.
And they haven’t done a darned thing about it.
That’s because the FDA doesn’t actually have the authority to recall cosmetics or personal care products. Instead the FDA can merely recommend recalls to the manufacturers.
Want to guess how well this “pretty please” approach is working?
So how can you stay safe? Well, there are two things you can do, starting today.
#1: There’s a bill floating around the U.S. Senate that would require the FDA to monitor cosmetic products for certain ingredients, regulate product labels and warnings, and give the agency authority to issue recalls.
I can’t promise the Keystone Kops at the FDA will actually do anything. But it’s at least a step in the right direction, and we should all reach out to our senators and let them know we support the legislation.
#2: The best way to avoid harmful side effects is to buy all-natural, organic cosmetic and personal care products.
They’re not loaded with harmful chemicals that could leave you pulling out your hair… literally.
