Very few business areas are as close to our skin, literally, as the body care industry. Yet it is one of the most unregulated. Our skin is our largest organ, yet all of our products have little governmental oversight or production standards to protect our health. This includes all of our shampoos, lotions, soaps, make-ups and other skin care products.
As warmer weather is upon us, many of us begin to put vast amounts of sunscreen onto our bodies as well as onto our little ones.
