    And by providing healthier alternatives
  • So, what exactly are cosmetics that bring us hope?
  • So, We know how closely the drug industry is regulated….DOES THE FDA APPROVE ALL COSMETICS BEFORE THEY GO ON THE MARKET?
  • What is the testing? Skin irritation. Single ingredient review. -- Near term reactions and no multiple chemical interaction
    So who watches over the cosmetic industry?
  • Ingredients listed like food products – largest amount first
  • So what is not on the list that we would expect?
  • Banned from school laboratories
  • Food use – when eat digest differently
    Study on breast tumors dissected
  • National Geographic Oct 2006
  • Teen girls are still developing with immune systems not as mature as ours
    NOW you may be thinking of products you purchased and why – even the words/ claims that caused you buy
  • Words on labels
  • Hazard ratings from 0 to 10 of these ingredients and products
    Can ask if don’t see your product or ingredient
  • Left 11 ingred, hazardous rating 1
    Right 24 ingred, hazardous rating 7
    Colors are controlled ( CI ) - note fragrance is not spelled out – proprietary information
  • Skin around eyes does not have oil glands and tends to dehydrate. As we age, this area is more prone to wrinkles.
  • May be used on body as well
  • Triclosan + chlorinated drinking water can create cancer-causing chloroform
    Triclosan when exposed to sunlight in rivers/streams produces dioxin (poison)
    Triclocarban: up to 75% persists even after wastewater treatment

    4. 4. Cosmetics Articles intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body’s structure or functions. Skin moisturizer Perfume Toothpaste Fingernail Polish Lipstick Deodorant Shampoo Hair Color Makeup

    7. 7. True or False? FDA must approve all cosmetics before they go on the market. FALSE FDA cannot require companies to do safety testing of their cosmetic products before marketing. FDA Office of Cosmetics and Colors (FDA 1995) Manufacturers are not required to  register cosmetic establishments,  file data on ingredients or  report cosmetic-related injuries to FDA
    8. 8. Cosmetic Industry is Self-Regulating Cosmetic firms are responsible for substantiating the safety of their products and ingredients before marketing. Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board (CIR)  founded in 1976 by industry trade association  6 member steering committee, chaired by the CEO of the Personal Care Products Council, meets 4 times per year and sets general policy and direction  10 member Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert panel selects ingredients for safety assessments and for re-review of assessments 15 years old or more • Safe, unsafe, safe with qualifications, insufficient data
    9. 9. Cosmetic Safety Unlike drug companies, cosmetic companies may use almost any ingredient they choose, except:  a few substances are restricted or not allowed. all color additives must be approved for their intended use and may need to be FDA certified for purity
    10. 10. FDA Authority over Cosmetics Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) Prohibits adulterated or misbranded cosmetics. Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA) Requires an accurate and complete ingredient declaration to enable consumers to make informed purchasing decisions.
    11. 11. Cosmetic Ingredients Over 12,000 different ingredients are being used by the cosmetic industry.
    12. 12. Cosmetic Ingredient Review Eight Prohibited Ingredients  Chloroform (except residual amounts as a solvent in the manufacturing process or as a byproduct)  Bithionol  Halogenated salicylanilides (di-, tri-, metabromsalan and tetrachlorosalicylanilide)  Vinyl chloride (as an ingredient of aerosol products)  Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellants (in cosmetic aerosol products)  Zirconium-containing complexes (in aerosol cosmetic products)  Methylene chloride  Prohibited cattle materials
    13. 13. Cosmetic Ingredient Review Three Restricted Ingredients • Hexachlorophene (HCP) (only if alternative is not available and is prohibited for use on lips) • Mercury compounds (limited to eye area cosmetics and only if no other preservative is effective) • Sunscreens in cosmetics (limited to non-therapeutic, non-physiologic uses such as product color protection)
    14. 14. What’s Not on the List? • Formaldehyde  Preservative  Found in eye cosmetics and nail products  Listed as a probable carcinogen in the U.S. National Toxicology Program’s 11th Report on Cancer
    15. 15. What’s Not on the List? • Formaldehyde • Phthalates  Prevent chipping in nail polish  Help cosmetics absorb into the skin  Common ingredients in nail polish, perfume, cologne, and hair spray  DBP and DEHP banned in Europe: DBP (studies show relationship to cancer and birth defects), DEHP (probable carcinogen)
    16. 16. What’s Not on the List? • Formaldehyde • Phthalates • Parabens  Most widely used preservatives  Not yet been assessed for safety by the CIR. Preliminary evidence shows parabens display estrogenic properties – they act like estrogen in the body.
    17. 17. What’s Not on the List? • Formaldehyde • Phthalates • Parabens • BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole)  Preservative  Listed as a reasonably anticipated human carcinogen in the U. S. National Toxicology Program’s 11th Report on Cancer.
    18. 18. What’s Not on the List? • Formaldehyde • Phthalates • Parabens • BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) • Triethanolamine (TEA) and diethanolamine (DEA)  Popular emulsifiers  National Toxicology Association study found an association between the application of DEA to skin and cancer in laboratory animals.  Safety assessment to be re-reviewed by CIR in 2011
    19. 19. The Many Names of … Parabens sobutylparaben menthylparaben buthyl paraben phenoxythylparaben undecylenoyl PEG 5 paraben ethylparaben potassium sorbate butylparaben polybaraben (preservatives) TEA methyl paraben buthylparaben polyparaben putylparaben preservative system (parabens – less than 1%) Phthalates dibutyl phthalate (DBP) diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) dimethyl phthalate (DMP) diethyl phthalate (DEP) Formaldehyde Formalin (trade name) May also be found in 2-bromo-2nitropropane-a,3-diol diazolidinyl urea DMDM hydantoin Ididazolidinyl urea Quarternium 15 Source: Environmental Working Group Source: FDA/CFSAN/Office of Cosmetics and Colors April 19, 2001; Updated March 31, 2005
    20. 20. Body Burden The Pollution in People • Biomonitoring  Measures the human body burden of chemicals. • Studies show exposure to and accumulation of chemical substances in people’s bodies.  Fire retardants, pesticides, plasticizers, metals, etc.  People do not get rid of all contaminants.  Pregnant women can pass contaminants to unborn child.
    21. 21. Which Products Do You Use? Which ones have you used today? This week?
    22. 22. Chemical Exposures through Personal Care Products • Average adult  Uses 9 personal care products each day.  Which contain 126 unique chemical ingredients.  45,990 chemical exposures per year. • Women use more products than men  Women use 12 products containing 168 unique ingredients.  Men use 6 products with 85 unique ingredients • Teen girls use 17 products.
    23. 23. • All compelling marketing terms, however… • No legal standards for “pure” or “natural” • To be truly organic, ingredients must be organic and look for USDA Organic certification. Pure ~ Natural ~ Organic
    24. 24. Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 • H.R. 5786 bill introduced by Rep. Schakowsky of Illinois • The bill is intended to:  Phase out ingredients linked to cancer, birth defects and developmental harm  Create a health-based safety standard that includes protection for children, the elderly, workers, and other vulnerable populations  Close labeling loopholes  Provide adequate FDA Office of Cosmetics and Colors funding to provide effective cosmetics industry oversight • safecosmetics.org for more details

    35. 35. Are Antibacterial Products Better? • Goal: Reduce infectious germs • Choices  Antimicrobials, e.g. triclosan and triclocarban, are associated with negative health and environmental effects.  “Old Fashioned Way” • Use warm water and mild liquid soap, rubbing hands for 10-15 seconds after lather appears. • Sanitizing Products  Products made with alcohol or thyme oil.  Hydrogen peroxide for home and industrial use.  Vinegar which is 5% acetic acid is a known antimicrobial and is a food grade product.
