People use cosmetics to keep clean and enhance their beauty. The most popular question is when does makeup expire. Makeup ranges from lipstick and nail polish to deodorant, perfume, hairspray, shampoo, shower gel, tattoos, hair adhesives, hair removal products, hair dyes, most soaps, some tooth whiteners, and some cleansing wipes.
It’s important to use cosmetics products safely. Celebrity taste makers Malika & Khadijah have a spectacular video I wanted to share with you.
Being familiar with the product you are using is important. Be sure to read the entire label, including the list of ingredients, warnings, and tips on how to use the product safely. Also, be aware of the following terms that you may see on the label:
- Hypoallergenic: Do not assume that the product will not cause allergic reactions. FDA does not define “hypoallergenic.”
- Organic or Natural: The source of the ingredients does not determine how safe it is. Do not assume that these products are safer than products made with ingredients from other sources. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines what it means for cosmetics to be labeled “organic.” However, there is no formal USDA or FDA definition for “natural.”
- Expiration Dates: The law does not require cosmetics to have an expiration date. However, a cosmetic product may go bad if you store it the wrong way — for example, in a place that is too warm or too moist. Marking the container with the date you open a cosmetic may help you keep track of the age of your cosmetics.
Be beautiful and safe.
