Defective Cosmetic Products
Cosmetics (make-up, perfume, cologne, hair products, hair dye, deodorant, shaving and facial cream etc.) are important to even the most low-maintenance of people. We all, both women and men, rely at least to some extent on cosmetics to make us feel confident and fresh.
Cosmetics require application to our bodies in one way or another. Most involve external application, but some products even involve internal application or injection. Some cosmetics can be hazardous to our bodies even when they are used properly. Most cosmetics contain various chemicals. The co-founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics warned that more than 200 chemicals can be on the average woman’s body before she even leaves the house in the morning. The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act does not require premarket approval for cosmetic products. Most frequently people complain of rashes or allergic reactions, but cosmetics can cause permanent injuries like disfigurement, loss of sight, hearing, or sensation, and chronic skin disease. Persons injured by cosmetic products may be able to recover from manufacturers, developers, researchers, marketers, and more.Why you should call a lawyer:
