Question: " Do skincare products cause cancer?"
Answer: Although there is little evidence to suggest that using cosmetics/skincare products long-term increases cancer risk. There are ingredients to be on the lookout for when shopping for skincare products.
According to the FDA and American Cancer Society, these ingredients could lead to the development of cancer;
1. DEA (diethanolamine)
Some manufacturers were known to use DEA, a substance to make the skincare product foamy and creamy. Exposure to high doses of DEA-related ingredients (such as monoethanolamine and triethanolamine) has been shown to cause liver cancers in mice and should be avoided. Look out for DEA, TEA, and MEA in the labels of shaving creams, foundations, lotions, sunscreens, mascara, and eyeshadows.
2. PEGs A.K.A. 1,4-dioxane
This product was used by some manufacturers as a thickening agent and is a known animal carcinogen and has been identified as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It can be found in foaming cleansers, body washes, and some shampoos and conditioners. Since you can’t find it listed in the ingredients label, the FDA says to look out for ingredients with the verbiage “PEG,” “Polyethylene,” “Polyethylene glycol,” “Polyoxyethylene,” or ingredients with “-eth-,” or “-oxynol-” in the name.
This product was used by some manufacturers as a preserver in skincare products. Although they occur naturally in certain foods, when it is combined with estrogenic chemicals, it can lead to the development of malignant melanoma, one form of skin cancer, Parabens are found in your more water-based products such as moisturizers, cleansers, and scrubs as well as shampoos and conditioners.
