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.
Would that be Soap Dish Forum? I’m a member there. I’ve learned so much as I’ve been formulating my own (personal use) products. We had a cosmetic chemist graciously giving so much information and answering questions. Miss you, Lab Rat!
The amount of disinformation out there is staggering. Makes me crazy. My own fire Go Bag is already packed with a full cosmetics kit. My house may be in ashes, but damn it I’ll still look good!
"Nasty" chemical preservatives prevent a lot of liquid and simi-liquid products from becoming really nasty slop.
