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It has been reported by some misinformed content outlets (Goop.com), that cosmetic regulations are not governed and are outdated since 1928 and whom chose to quote a century old document as their editorial evidence.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.
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.
