Cosmetics might make people look more attractive, but the ingredients in many personal care products don't add up to a very pretty picture, according to a new video, The Story of Cosmetics: The Ugly Truth of Toxins in, Toxins out. Produced by Annie Leonard (who also wrote The Story of Stuff), it's an eye-opening look at the world of personal care products.
Leonard's message: the cosmetics industry is unregulated. The Federal Drug Administration doesn't test the safety of personal care products. It doesn't even require that all of the ingredients be listed on the label. And that can make for cosmetics that can have some pretty nasty ingredients, she says.
