Noncarcinogenic cosmetics and dyes?


Question from Paula C: Many cosmetics and hair dyes have carcinogens. It is my understanding that Europe is way ahead of us in this. Cosmetic companies cannot sell products that contain carcinogens, and even if an ingredient is suspect to being a carcinogen, it cannot be used. How can we get these products? Can you recommend USA products, especially hair dyes?
Answers - Anna-Dee Rinehart I'm not prepared to offer a recommendation. If we could choose a product, we would choose a natural product with as few parabens as possible and recommend dermatologist-accepted products. However, we won't give any specific name of a product.
