About Cosmetics

I went to the store and checked the ingredients form many “natural” cosmetics I found that many have unsafe ingredients.  The same has happened when patients bring in special “natural” products that they found online.  Why are there so many toxic ingredients in our cosmetics?  It appears that the answer is no regulation.  Here is some information on the situation.  Try to learn more about toxic ingredients and stay away from them in your market.

We do sell nontoxic cosmetics and herbal medicine here in the office because here the ingredients can be controlled.  Nei Jing Eastern Medicine is regulated by the honor system.  The goal is to get patients healthy again, not to give the patients toxic products that cause other health problems.

The marketplace is unregulated, please learn about what ingredients are toxic and stay away.

Here is an entertaining video about the current situation:

Take care out there in the marketplace.
