How to protect yourself?
So, read the composition - in the smallest letters, in the most inaccessible places - on the folds of the package, in the places where the tubes are sealed, etc. Do not take the manufacturer's word for it when you come across the marks “eco”, “natural cosmetics”, “paraben-free” and others.
In a cosmetic store, like in a bank - maximum attention to what is in small print
Better yet, make your own cosmetics. Everything, of course, will not be able to prepare, but some masks and lotions are quite possible.
