Popular makeup brands are giving women cancer!

Post by Trisha89 »

Listen up, ladies! We need to talk about the absolute travesty that is happening in the beauty industry right now. You know that talc powder that's in a lot of makeup products? Yeah, turns out it could be killing us.

Recent studies have revealed that some popular makeup brands are including asbestos in their products. ASBESTOS, people! This is because when mining for talc asbestos is usually close by and can contaminate the talc. Do you know what that means? It means that we're putting potentially deadly fibers on our faces and inhaling them. And the worst part? There's no requirement for these companies to test for asbestos. They're just throwing it in there like it's no big deal.

I mean, come on! We trust these brands to make us look beautiful, and they repay us by potentially giving us diseases like mesothelioma and lung cancer? It's a complete betrayal.😡

We need to be smarter than this, ladies. Don't just blindly trust the companies that make our makeup. Check the ingredients list and if you see talc, RUN. Don't buy it. Don't use it. Protect yourself and your health.

It's time for the cosmetics industry to step up and take responsibility for what they're putting in their products. We deserve to know what we're putting on our skin and in our bodies. We deserve transparency and honesty. And until we get it, we need to be vigilant and informed consumers.

So, let's take a stand, ladies. Let's demand better from the beauty industry. And in the meantime, let's avoid any product at all that contains talc. Our health is too important to risk for the sake of a pretty face.

Only use natural organic products that are free from talc and any other harmful ingredients.

The word really needs to get out about this. Its is so important. 😔

👏🏼 PREACH, sister! This is an outrage! How dare these beauty brands put our health at risk just to cut corners and save a few bucks? And to think, we've been slathering this crap on our faces for years without a second thought. 😤

It's absolutely unacceptable that there's no requirement for these companies to test for asbestos. They're more concerned with their profits than our well-being. 🤦🏻‍♀️

We deserve better than this. We deserve to know exactly what's in the products we're using and how they could potentially harm us. It's time for these beauty brands got sued out of existence.

I don't know about you, but I'm not gonna stand for this. We need to all band together and stop buying products from companies who think it is okay to do this. Who's with me? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Yup! Maybelline, Covergirl, L'Oreal, Revlon, Estee Lauder - the list goes on and on. Do they not care about the health of their consumers? Are they just trying to cut corners and save a few bucks at the expense of our lives?

It's not just a few isolated incidents either. There have been numerous studies that have linked talc to cancer, particularly ovarian cancer. And yet, these beauty brands continue to use it in their products. It's like they're playing a game of Russian roulette with our health. Do they not realize that their actions have consequences?

Now, I know that some of these brands are starting to phase out talc and use alternative ingredients. But why did it take them so long to do so? Why did it take a public outcry and mounting evidence for them to take action? It's like they were perfectly content to keep using talc until they were forced to do otherwise. It's sickening, really.

What bothers me is why are these beauty brands even still allowed to use talc in their products. Where's the regulation? Where's the oversight? It's like the government doesn't care about our health either. They're perfectly content to let these beauty brands continue to use talc, even though it's been linked to cancer. What a bunch of twats! 😤
