Well -- -- right.
Unless you're getting ready for work this morning you are greedy and greedy -- and all of those lotions creams make up that -- using.
Some could contain deadly -- send -- to explain is safe beauty expert industry executive and chemist David Pollack thank you for joining us this morning so we worry about the food we eat the water we drink even the air we breathe but we overlook the fact that toxins can enter our body.
Through our ski at the 60% of the ingredients that we put on her body can be absorbed into our bodies and so we need to take at look at what's on the ingredient statement.
And in fact you worked a chemist for some of the top makeup brands for years but something prompted you.
To change course what was that yes -- -- I've done work for almost every major Brandon you'd recognize a bunch of -- and not just make up but even skin care and all kinds of personal care.
But over the past number of years of -- different family members and friends fight the battle of cancer and some it's just been a tough -- so.
But being in the room when a doctor tells you.
That if it's this type of cancer it's because of this -- chemical or this type of cancer because of this chemical I had to ask.
And they -- well we don't know all but we know certain ingredients do cause certain problems and I set -- gonna make a change and on how it's not on the news every day right medicine I've got to get out.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The one that you think people have to avoid is paragon and there are definitely there almost everywhere they -- they're considered -- food we deserved it but I.
Presented that argument for a long time to food -- is there but there are studies to show that it can cause cancer.
And so when you've got -- -- dangerous going into the body.
Why use it.
And you know the industry says that it is absolutely safe and the FDA has a quote we're -- put up right now.
The Food and Drug Administration the FDA believes that the present time there is no reason for consumers to be concerned about the use of cosmetics containing.
A parent -- and yet in Europe this and many others are banned it.
In Europe 11100.
Different ingredients have either been -- regulated because -- been found to be harmful or toxic.
But in the US it's only eleven.
So the FDA can say what they want that's fine there are studies to show otherwise but but bigger concern is.
Have had to be tested because it's in so many products have been in my body it's in a lot of the foods I eat.
And so now you've got a layer after layer after layer of the quantities of it -- unbelievable right -- talk about how it's a tiny bit in each product but he's honest cumulative -- wanna get some more of the the band one Orton did not bad ones the ones that you say should be banned PEG's and like calls PD's and like both have to be.
I mean it has polyethylene glycol its list on the late blues PEG is he said and glycol all -- the typical icons.
There is -- that there are known carcinogens it's on the FDA website isn't known carcinogen.
But again Trace levels -- supposed to be okay.
But the problem is it's in almost everything all the way down to a lot of our toothpaste ads up OK we're just gonna -- through the last three -- the -- fates Petro chemicals and that includes mineral oil.
And even petroleum jelly that is directly.
And synthetic fragrance which you say allows them to get away with adding back some of these -- -- to trick of the trade.
At the end of the day you can read the label and avoid everything you want but it has the -- fragrance on it the FDA says anything that's involved in making the -- including client calls -- or anything -- they -- can be hidden -- -- -- fragrance so it it can still smell nice use extracts essential -- but avoid anything that doesn't disclose it hides under the -- fragrance that Pollack thank you so much and for more information -- go to your website which is just ask David dot com our question just -- thank you so much thank you.
