This is the conclusion to my research round with the question: How do cosmetics effect us? I'll be wrapping up the stuff that I learnt in this round of research. I really liked looking into makeup and the effects. I am also exited to move on to my next topic.
The first thing I looked into was liquid and powder foundation and the effects and contents of these products. for liquid foundation I found that a lot of foundations have the word organic on the bottle and that doesn't mean that it is actually all organic it may just mean that one of the ingredients in the product is organic there for the product is organic. I learnt about the harming chemicals in these like parabens. For powder products I didn't find much of anything as it is just colored powders. I also found that liquid foundations there actually is anti aging in them.
Next I looked into eye shadow and liner. For eye shadows there is a dangerous chemical called lead acetate most commonly known as lead poisoning. there is also a chemical that mimics estrogen (the female sex hormone) this can be a contribution to breast cancer. For eyeliner it has something in it called phthalates that can give you cancer if it isn't a good eyeliner.
for the next week I looked into mascaras and lip products. mascara, a dangerous thing in this is called carbon black a black odorless solid that is found in these products and it is dangerous because of its tiny size so you can inhale it and in turns end up shortening your life span. For lip products there are metals found in lip sticks and glosses. some metals were cadmium and chromium and a lot more.
In conclusion I have learnt a lot about the different products that I used and I even abandoned some of my old trusted makeup friends and got some new ones. thank you to everyone that looked and commented on my posts.
