Everyday most of us use a whole array of hair, skin, body, and beauty products without ever asking whether or not they are safe. We incorrectly assume that the Food and Drug Administration has such tight regulations on these products that we need not worry. Amazingly, there is little attention given to the fact that there are many potentially harmful ingredients that are widespread throughout the beauty industry. In Dying to be Beautiful, beauty industry expert Peter Lamas exposes the truth about the potentially toxic ingredients used in many products that are easily absorbed into your skin and which can remain in your body for a very long time. When you consider that many of these are products you and your family use day after day for decades, the potential for problems is very real.
