How many jobs would be lost if the new regulations destroy the cosmetics industry?
Welcome to Free Republic!
Please note, these need to be posted in the Bloggers/Personal area in the future.
I was frozen into a pillar of salt as I walked by a local MAC store and locked eyes with a women in the demo chair.
I’ll give you my cosmetics when you take them from my cold, dead hands
Thanks for the thread JSM. Just an FYI, promoting a blog on FR is frowned upon here.
And all of those radical groups have BO and look like hell warmed over.
There is some excellent information to be found on scare tactic legislation at “Support Small Businesses That Make Cosmetics”
Not to mention that dihydrogen monoxide that lethally creeps its way into the homes of the unsuspecting. But I disgress simple logic tells us that chemicals, all chemicals, even with innocent sounding names such as SALT are dangerous. And need to be heavily regulated or banned. How do I know this simple.
Chemicals include the class Petro Chemicals.
Petroleum as in well Petroleum, like oil and crude and gasoline.
Petroleum can be extracted from different sources but we know that originally it came from the rotting carcasses of dinosaurs.
the T Rex was a dinosaur. The T Rex in the movie Jurassic Park ate people.
This proves that dinosaurs are deadly.
Dinosaurs are in petro chemicals. Petro Chemicals are Chemicals. Therefore Chemicals are deadly.
Sure you might end up with a brontosaurus chemical but why take any chances?
I belong to a soap and cosmetic making forum where this is often discussed. Many times it is very patiently explained to people that nasty, nasty chemical preservatives keep products from being contaminated by natural fungus and bacteria.
The battle is not about "looks" but some thing more than skin deep.
If you ban things like siloxanes you will may not be able to buy soft toilet tissue, strong absorbent paper towels, disposable baby diapers, plastic milk bottles, dry wall for house construction and that's just the beginning of list of products that will disappear, which we in the past we have always taken for granted.
They are not after our "looks" they are after our "hearts".
Oh for the love of pete
LEAVE MY MAKEUP, LIPGLOSS, POWDER, BLUSH, MASCARA AND EYESHADOW ALONE.............
Ancient Egyptians wore make-up and now they are all dead.
I use Temptu air brush makeup & it’s loaded with siloxanes.
If siloxanes is what makes Temptu last about 18 hrs or more, well I better go stock up on the pods now because I love Temptu.
The guy at Sephora did say, it’s best to not breathe it in while you are applying the microfine mist. Heck it sprays on so fast, you are ready to go in less than 2 minutes.
Pass the spraypaint!
I have no opinion on this current controversy.....it sounds like junk science to me.
However, in the days before the FDA (late 19th and early 20th century), many women were blinded, etc. by things placed in cosmetics. So, a prudent amount of caution is usually warranted. That is why animal testing is done....which the PETA crowd yells so much about.
The EPA has gone too far many times.
Get this group out of the American political scene!!
