Safe alternatives to dangerous beauty products
Asbestos, formaldehyde and other chemicals are often among the ingredients in many of the beauty products we all love. Lifestyle expert Diana Wright says there are equally effective products without the bad stuff on the market. She showed Good Day NY viewers her favorites.
NEW YORK - There's a trend emerging in the beauty industry to move toward clean products-- those free of dangerous ingredients like asbestos and formaldehyde.
Lifestyle expert Diana Wright says there are only 11 ingredients banned from beauty products in the United States, compared to 1,300 in the European Union. With little regulation of the industry, it's up to the consumer to look for items that aren't likely to cause ill side effects.
