What Other Facts About Chemicals in
Skin Care Would You Like To Know?

Welcome to the fast facts page. This page is your gateway to the many facts regarding chemicals, toxins, skincare and their history. This page is divided into three categories to allow easy searching for you.

Would You Like to Check My Sources?

The first category is for you to dig deeper into the facts and evidence published on this site as references in articles. The way it works is this. When you find a fact quoted on this site with a link titled "Source" next to it, click on that link to be taken to the primary source document.

From there you can review and verify the fact presented. The fact will also contain a short bibliography pointing to the original document or website from which it came.

Here is an example for you that relates to the headline of this page.

Would You Like To Get The Fast Facts?

The second category is a collection of fast facts and their sources that I have not directly used in my commentary, though still valuable. These will add to your arsenal of knowledge regarding chemicals and toxins used in skincare products.

Fast Fact for you to ponder: The secret double life of SLS!

    Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), is a foaming agent that is used in 90% of commercial personal care products. These products include toothpaste, shampoo and conditioners.

    However, SLS is so strong it is also used in car washes, garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers. The M.S.D.S, a government body, classifies SLS as a severe skin irritant.

    In tests, animals exposed to SLS experience eye damage, central nervous system depression, laboured breathing, diarrhoea, severe skin irritation, and even death.

How About Quotable Quotes?

The third category is a series of interesting and noteworthy quotes by people in authority. These quotes are often candid admissions by government authorities. It is amazing the amount of damning evidence in full public view!

Quotable Quote: This one straight from the horse's mouth!

    "Very little about the process restricts their sale. And it's a somewhat alarming idea to put acids on the skin. It raises obvious safety questions."

    — Dr. John Bailey, Director of FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Color, on the use of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) in cosmetics (FDA 1999)
