A skincaria has the potential to be a healthful alternative to traditional skincares and it’s all thanks to the fact that its cosmetics are made out of “healthy ingredients,” a new study says.
The research, conducted by researchers at The University of Western Australia and The University and published in the Journal of Cosmetic Science, shows that the “sick-looking” cosmetic industry is becoming a big part of the health care landscape.
“It’s not just cosmetics, it’s a lot of other types of medical products,” Associate Professor Scott Hall from the University of Adelaide said.
“So, we need to look at the other industries that are contributing to health, whether that’s the tobacco industry or some of the other manufacturing industries that we are concerned about.”
Professor Hall said it was important to recognise the role cosmetics played in the “carcasses” of people, the products they used and their overall health.
The research team examined how much cosmetics were purchased by people, how often they bought them and what other products they bought.””
Cosmetics are the most prevalent form of cosmetic used by consumers and so we want to know how it affects health.”
The research team examined how much cosmetics were purchased by people, how often they bought them and what other products they bought.
“People were asked about how often and how much they bought cosmetics,” Professor Hall said.
“[We] found that the vast majority of cosmetics were bought by women.”
Professor Scott Hall said cosmetics were not necessarily healthier than traditional skinny products.
“If you look at a lot and see a lot, then you might think that’s healthy, but you wouldn’t necessarily think it’s healthy,” he explained.
“But it really depends on what you’re looking at.”
For example, a lot can be a lot more harmful than a lot.
“The study found that a typical day spent using a cosmetics counter in a supermarket was more than three times more harmful to a person’s health than using an ice cream cone.”
In a lot [of cases], the people who are using cosmetics are not actually paying for the products,” Professor Hart said.
Professor Hall’s research also found that while consumers were not paying for cosmetics, they were paying for other things.”
We found that they [consumer purchases] are actually contributing to the consumption of other products,” he noted.”
They’re buying other things that are not necessarily made in Australia, and those products are contributing not only to their health but to the environment as well.
“The researchers also found some cosmetic companies were using products made with “dead” animals to make their products.
These products were sold as “animal free” but were actually made of dead animals, including dogs, rabbits and mice.”
When people go to buy these products, they are purchasing products that are made from animal products,” Dr Hall said, adding that “animal-free” products should be avoided at all costs.
Professor Scott Hart said the findings showed cosmetics were important in a consumer’s overall health and that they could be used in the treatment of certain diseases.”
What we’re saying is that there are different things that cosmetics can be used for,” Professor Scott Hart explained.
