Look out for these toxic ingredients in cosmetics that are dangerous and harmful

6 Phthalates

Now this group of chemicals are the most common toxic ingredients in cosmetics and they are literally found in millions of cosmetics and personal care products. They are present in nail polish, deodorants, perfumes, hair sprays and moisturizers. They are commonly called as dibutyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate and dimethyl phthalate. These Phthalates are used to increase the softness and flexibility of plastics.

Phthalates are endocrine disruptors and increase risk of breast cancer and unfortunately, this chemical is clubbed under the category of fragrance and we tend to stay unaware.
