So in my early twenties I used to be into organic and "natural" beauty before I used my brain and researched and found out the real deal on them. Does anyone else feel disgusted that the beauty industry cashes in on our insecurities about what we put on our skin? I don't blame people for being wary of ingredients, but I do encourage them to research and find out that organic or natural is not any better and can actually be worse for you. But I think it is ridiculous that the FDA doesn't get more involved in the beauty industry to ban these so-called, "natural" products and ban ingredients that are actually bad for your beauty and health such as dyes and fragrances. That way the informed consumer doesn't have to waste money and shit that don't work. Personally, I use either Dermadoctor or Paula's Choice for my skincare routine now. What do you use? Do you like natural or synthetic beauty products, and why or why not?

FDA ban them? FDA is one of the most corrupt organizations. They don't ban them because corporations have poured in enough money to not let that happen. So Instead of proving product or ingredient is not harmful and then allowing it to be used. A product or ingredient has to be proven harmful to actually be taken off market.1
