Last week, Eric Chew from Bud Cosmetics gave a presentation about common myths and half-truths about our everyday skincare products, so as to raise awareness on the toxins in skincare products.
Bud Cosmetics imports, and sells a healthy range of natural and organic skincare products at their cosy shop at Square 2, in Novena.
During the talk, he shared figures from the US non-profit organization Environmental Working Group, on how the average person uses 10 different skincare products daily, and that women ingest up to 4.5kg of lipstick in their lifetime. In addition, he talked about how skincare products are not rigorously regulated, and encouraged participants to always read the label before picking up a product. Also, he said to visit Cosmetic Database, a skincare toxins resource which advises which toxins, and corresponding health threats, lay in day-to-day skincare products.
Thank you, Eric, for sharing your personal experiences and knowledge on skincare products!
