-- Walking to make up stores will allow you to see a lot of cosmetic products. They vary in different forms like creams, scrubs and more. All them promise to take away the signs of aging. However as a shopper, you should be wise and take a serious precaution before buying any particular product. The reason is that a lot of companies play with words and even say a bunch of lies just to sell their products.
The FDA or the Food and Drug Administration see one example and eventually gave warning to one popular company. It’s now keeping an eye for their false claims. They sent their word of warning to L’Oreal. It was with regards to the phrases that are found on their website which resulted in a questionable statement on some of its products.
The letter contains some of the company’s beauty products like sun screens, eye creams, night creams and a lot of more. Aside from such, the letter also mentioned some questionable phrases on their website. One example in particular would be the claim of Genetique Eye Youth Activating Eye Concentrate which says, "Boosts the activity of genes and stimulates the production of youth proteins."
Another one would be the Absolute Precious Cells Advanced Regenerating and the other one is Reconstructing Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen. Both of these products claim that the buyers would "see significant deep wrinkle reductions in UV damaged skin, clinically proven."
According to the FDA, L’Oreal’s products aren’t “generally recognized among qualified experts as safe and effective for the above referenced uses.” They are urging the company to make some corrections to their website. However, the news source clears that the said company isn’t the only one that was given warning. At the same time the letter was given to L’Oreal, FDA also sent another warning to Greek Island Labs regarding their product known as the Athena7 Minute Life. The company says that this product is “safe and a good alternative for Botox.”
Botox is one example of injectable filler that has been approved by the FDA for many years now and it has become popular ever since. “That’s what happens when we blend in too much business on our services,” says Dr. Paul McCluskey from http://psiatlanta.com/
. “It just places a lot of people in trouble.”
It’s great to refer to experts and board-certified surgeons for information.
