Complaints about the quality of cosmetics and perfumes increased in Russia

Russians began to buy cosmetics 15% less often. Rospotrebnadzor in February held a “hot line” on the quality and safety of perfumery and cosmetic products. The Russians turned to her 5429 times. A year ago, there were a thousand fewer such appeals. This was reported in the press service of the department.

The specialized hotline of Rospotrebnadzor, which worked from February 6 to February 17, received 5429 calls. This is almost 1.5 thousand more than during a similar action last year, the ministry said.

“Consumers were interested in what mandatory information the labeling of perfumery and cosmetic products should contain, on which products it must be present, what information should be placed on cosmetics for children,” Rospotrebnadzor said.

The buyers also asked the department’s specialists to help draw up claims against the sellers: lawyers helped write 145 appeals.

The volume of counterfeit perfumes in perfumery has been consistently decreasing

8 August 2022, Quezon City. The toxics watchdog group EcoWaste Coalition for the nth time urged online shopping platforms to take down ads for skin whitening cosmetics banned or flagged by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for containing mercury and/or for lacking market authorization.

“In time for the 8.8. online shopping sale, our intern carefully monitored these hugely popular online shopping sites from August 1 to 6. Much to our disappointment, hundreds of FDA-banned or flagged skin care products, especially skin lightening facial creams, are being advertised and sold as if these products are legal and safe,” said Aileen Lucero, National Coordinator, EcoWaste Coalition.

The group used the

Bbare cosmetics is bringing clean beauty to the masses

Consumers are demanding cleaner products across the board, advocating more and more for the removal of harmful chemicals and toxins from the products they use.

Companies that are more conscious of the environment and the impact on the consumer are the ones that are at the forefront of each industry today.

One industry that has struggled for decades when it comes to damaging ingredients or harming the environment is the beauty industry. The beauty industry generates more than $100 billion U.S. dollars in revenue each year, so its environmental impact is much too large to continue ignoring.

The average woman uses twelve different beauty products each day, some of which are makeup, nail polish, skin care, fragrances and more. However, many of these products are subject to major plastic pollution, harmful packaging or even animal testing. This is what inspired Chantelle Thompson to develop her very own beauty brand,
