How ludicrous the US cosmetic industry REALLY is.

     Have you heard about how the Canadian and European government has stricter cosmetic laws? It’s true, many toxins/ irritants (Over 100) are banned in any cosmetic or personal hygiene product minus possibly bar soaps.  In Canada and Europe but, not America  This does not mean, obviously that people with SPD have nothing to worry about in those countries. Because that would be the farthest from the truth. However, it does mean if you live in either of those countries you have a lot less too worry about. And for that, I thank who ever made those laws in those countries.  Don’t you?! 

   It maybe true that some of those ingrediants aren’t in the US products. But, honestly, do you even want 1 of them in any of your products? Do you really want any manufacturer to have that kind of freedom? 


     This site explains in detail what the “Canadians hotlist is” the short version is this. It’s two tables of all of the ingredients that are forbidden. And another table for all the ingrediants and by products that are restricted. (so meaning ingrediants and by products only allowed in certain types of products/ in small concentrations.)

Although the Canadians are banned from putting many toxins and irritants in there products. There labeling requirements are not nearly as strict as the US or European Labeling criteria.
