.. Harmful choice for beauty ..

Beauty - make up - products have potential to destroy the skin for which user falsely believed to beautify it.

Carcinogens like Chromium & Nickle are present in most lipsticks , mercury is too there in fairness creams.

Users need to make an informed choice , makers should put health warnings on cosmetic items about it's harmful contents as in the case of Alcohol bottles for example ...

See here , Govts are protcting even the animals from being abused in this trade ......

MUMBAI: Cosmetic companies should take heed. Conceding to concerns raised by animal welfare organizations, the government has banned the use of animals in testing of cosmetics manufactured in the country. Sources said that the health ministry issued a notification recently prohibiting testing of cosmetics on animals.

The amendment, made in the Drug and Cosmetics Act, 1945, says the decision has been taken after consultation with the ministry's Drugs Technical Advisory Board, and the rules will be effective within 45 days of it being made public. The ban implies that no cosmetic which has been tested on animals in the country will be allowed to be sold.

Since the regulation on animal testing in India was opaque, there are no specific estimates of animal-tested cosmetics sold in the country, N G Jayasimha, director of animal welfare group Humane Society International, which championed the cause, told TOI.

The health ministry decided to amend the rules after issues were raised by certain organizations and Members of Parliament, and to follow standards in line with the European Union. Last year saw the implementation of the final phase of an EU law, making the testing of cosmetics on animals completely illegal.

Paving the way for the ban, the Bureau of Indian Standards had last year approved the removal of animal tests from the country's cosmetics standard. The use of modern non-animal alternative tests also becomes mandatory, replacing invasive tests on animals. This means that any manufacturer interested in testing new cosmetic ingredients or finished products must first seek approval from India's Central Drug Standards Control Organisation. A manufacturer will be given approval to test only after complying with the BIS non-animal standards.

However, the ban will not prevent companies from importing and selling animal-tested cosmetics in the country. Companies are still free to outsource their animal testing to other countries and then import newly animal-tested cosmetics and ingredients back into India.

To prevent this, India must also ban the import and sale of cosmetic products and ingredients that have been newly animal-tested anywhere in the world. Israel and 28 countries in the European Union have already done this, Jayasimha said. According to him, the Drug Technical Advisory Board has also spoken in favour of an import and sales ban of animal-tested cosmetics.

There are no official statistics on the use of animals in cosmetics in India.

My Cuban Shot Putter had naturally beautiful bronze skin. She did not need any makeup. I recall that Rizks once offered her some of his "fair and lovely" cream, but she refused.

Many cosmetics contain chemicals that are known as Parabens,which recent studies have indicated to be linked with the development of cancer.

So It is a must that we carefully read the names of ingredients on the products that we buy. The best thing that we could do for ourselves is investigate thoroughly the products that we use. It will definitely benefit us in the long run.
