Every day millions of us apply cosmetics to our skins. But what exactly are we putting on them? What do the ingredients listed on the packaging mean? Do you know why such items are included? How could they affect your skin?
Cosmetic researcher Maurene Charlwood and journalist Cheryl Robertson explain over 400 of the most common ingredients used in skin care cosmetics today. They de-mystify such baffling names as AHAs, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, stearic acid, nanospheres and propyl paraben.
Whatever skin care cosmetic you use – cleansing milk, facial scrub, moisturiser, "anti-wrinkle" cream, toning lotion, foundation cream, sunscreen, hand lotion, deodorant, antiperspirant, shaving cream, bath oil and shower gel – now you will know what’s in it!
