Cosmetics are something which is used to alter or enhance the beauty of an individual. All human beings use some kind of cosmetic product. Whether it is a moisturizer or expensive eyeliner, every product has its own benefits and uses. These are used to make one more attractive and good-looking. These can be poured, sprayed or rubbed by an individual to improve one’s appearance. Nowadays cosmetics are also used in movies to create artificial appearances like that of zombies and ghosts to give a ghastly feeling.
Cosmetic products like moisturizers, hairspray, lipstick, eye shadow and body lotions manufactured by various cosmetic manufacturing companies are sold all over the world. However, the recent practice of adulteration and use of harmful chemicals in cosmetic products is uncalled-for. Use of these cosmetic products can cause serious damage to the skin like skin rashes and can even lead skin cancer. Moreover, testing of cosmetic products on animals is also a cruel practice which must be abolished. Counterfeit i.e. fake products are being sold by suppliers to generate profits. It is the duty of the government and cosmetic manufacturing companies to ensure right products reach the suppliers.
Government has taken certain steps in this direction by creating a separate law and act in the constitution to ensure animals are not harmed in the testing phase. Moreover, both companies and suppliers have to disclose the ingredients used to manufacture the products. The law also prohibits the companies to make false claims and lure the suppliers to sell their products using attractive catalogs.
