Products, names and ingredients as of 2002. Products may no longer exist and names and/or ingredients may have changed.

If your favorite company or particular product is not on this list, it does not necessarily mean the company or product contains only healthy ingredients. This is only a very small list meant to be representative of the behavior of the vast majority of so-called "skin care" companies. It is hoped that this small list will inspire you to research the ingredients in the products you use.

Don't trust the ingredients listed on the container. This is usually very limited and minimal. Contact the company for a product detail sheet showing all ingredients.
