Here’s some good weekend reading about cosmetic science. They cover some good information but unfortunately, the non-science based EWG gets referenced at the end. It’s a bit of an embarrassment for an organization like the Australian Academy of Science.
There was a discussion where the Skin Deep database was referenced as a source for raw material information on our cosmetic science forum. I’m glad to see that most of the cosmetic scientists there aren’t fooled by the misinformation on the EWG site. Sadly, people outside the cosmetic industry (including other scientists) don’t realize the flaws.
