The most dangerous beauty and health products live in your medicine cabinet behind the mirror. Some beauty products and health products are a toxic nightmare that shorten your life and send you to the grave in no time.

Your safety of personal beauty care products is in the hands of people who govern this same industry: The Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CTFA). Furthermore the scientists paid by this association regulate the safety of the cosmetics ingredients industry.
