Overview

Splashy ads and commercials for personal care products are everywhere we turn, promising to keep our appearances fresh and our partners satisfied.

But do consumers really know what they’re applying to their faces and bodies in their quests for youth and beauty? Do they know the health risks they’re taking by simply applying lipstick, face moisturizer or deodorant? Toxic cosmetics and personal care products clutter the shelves at retail stores everywhere, and consumers don’t know the avoidable risks they’re taking by following a simple beauty regimen.

Written by Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, a founder and chairperson of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, Toxic Beauty gives the lowdown on salon safety, health risks hiding in everyday products, how we put our children in danger and more. Toxic Beauty will also educate you and your family on easily implemented solutions through the use of a variety of positive alternatives.

Through the help of Dr. Epstein and Toxic Beauty, you can protect yourself from the possible long-term effects of a simple beauty product.
