How are Cosmetics Regulated - By Advanced Scientists & Experts

The deconstruction of science and cosmetic science, which includes the vast molecular fields ranging from food, fragrance, therapeutic, medicinal and developmental science, has become somewhat of a social exercise. The scrutiny of ingredients that are safe for human consumption are regulated by several global governances, hundreds of governmental, university faculties and consortiums made up of experts who have demonstrated history of higher education, proven theory and high level of ethical practice and legislations that are based on thousands of years of knowledge based science, history and evidence. 

It has been reported by some misinformed content outlets (Goop.com), that cosmetic regulations are not governed and are outdated since 1928 and whom chose to quote a century old document as their editorial evidence. This is just not the case. If you are interested in cosmetic regulations, visit the websites for FDA-USA, Health Canada, European Commission, Cofepris - Mexico, CTFA - South Africa, China FDA, Department of Health and Family Welfare - India, CIR - Cosmetic Ingredient Review, IFRA - International Fragrance Association and many more comprehensive international associations. There are several commissions within every country and specific sectors in which to also find further cosmetic regulation references.

In fact, there are hundreds of regulatory governances, at least one for every country, and dozens of robust global alliances that oversee the continued advancement of cosmetic innovation and improvement.

By allowing the deconstruction of cosmetic ingredients to be scrutinized by the public in social media or otherwise, is not in the best interest of the public. The circulation of mythologies based on improper method or misinformation do not provide accurate nor sound information. Anecdotal information can be helpful to social communications and marketing but clinical and evidence based science from the lab are what keep our families health in best interest. 

Consumers can trust their products - but always remember, use products that are appropriate for your personal use and use only as directed, use in moderation and do not engage in risk when it comes to yours or your family's health and concerns.

CBD For Pain - How Science Doesn't Meet The Marketing 2021, A Harvard Health Study

Currently, more than 50 countries have adopted medicinal cannabis programmes while Canada, Uruguay and 15 US states have legalized its recreational use, with Mexico and Luxembourg having political debates as to whether to follow that path. - UN News & UN CND (Commission on Narcotic Drugs)

This market shift toward the wider cultural acceptance of therapeutic cannabis is finding consumer brands rushing to market to fulfil marketplace demands with unsufficient scientific alignment. The reality is, and many science institutions (FDA, UK Commission, WHO) have agreed, that there has not been sufficient testing, length of study, nor broad-scope subjective data collected on longterm human effects that is available to us today.

Alkanes are plant based silicone alternatives that can be non-comodegenic and used in oil-free formulations, the material is ECOCERT approved, USDA certified bio-based. Additionally, as alkanes are organic compounds, it is fully biodegradable.
