I spotted a few fallacies but I'm not a chemist so I was troubled. I am a long time fan of Paula Begoun's work so I am both skeptical of the cosmetic industry and the non science based detractors who view things in a black and white world.
Too many of the cosmetic/skin care product detractors are living in an either or universe disconnected from reality--either it's green and organic and preferably vegan therefore good for you (often stating a hatred of evil chemicals disregarding the fact that even the greenest most organic and vegan vetted skin product is made of chemicals) OR it's an evil brew put out by multinational corporate bad boys just TRYING to give you cancer in their rush to fulfill their greedy bottom line. (forgetting that evil caustic brews killing off their buyers tend to have a negative effect on the bottom line!)
On the other hand I look at what goes into some things like menthol--a potent irritant carefully inserted into a Eucerin lotion designed for sensitive reddened skin and it doesn't make me feel confident in the Eucerin brand at all. I saw this BEFORE I bought this book on my search for nice creams and lotions that won't irritate my sensitive allergenic skin (with rosacea). I know from past experience that anything minty fresh or menthol will drive my skin nuts. I remember thinking "Isn't Eucerin supposed to be SAFE for sensitive skin?Read more ›
I enjoyed this book for the following reason:
1. Inside the front of the book is a clear table of contents to help guide you through just in case you don't want to read through the complete book.
2. The authors have a great sense of humor which relates to the questions or their answers.
3. The information provided has been studied or tested and the answers are honest.
4. There is information about what it takes to make a product good and why a product may not work.
5. I learned how to properly judge a product without being bias or overly excited because it is new.
6. Authors avoid using too much science vocabulary, so this book is easier to read and understand.
