Many readers contact me on social media asking things like how safe are my beauty products? What are certain things I should avoid in make up?
Since becoming a chemist, my awareness of chemicals is very high. I constantly analyze packages, labels, and even read the MSDS sheets for many company’s products.
When I was writing Chemistry Hacks for Home and Outdoors, I researched all the store-bought version of the products to mimic them in a safe way. After reading many of the MSDS for popular cleaning solutions, I was even more excited about writing this book.
Beauty products are also complicated with literally thousands of different forms of chemicals used to make each one. Most of them are not bad for you, but are strictly for texture, structure, or color. Unfortunately, many dangerous chemicals are found in these beauty products too.
