"The thin, outermost layer of the skin, has evlevod to provide protection from external chemicals that people are routinely exposed to". Along with this, the process of "absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion" is enough to deal with the products. Dr Michael disagrees: "The skin has evlevod to protect us from everything that was there for millions of years, but not for the stuff that has been there for the last 100 years. The body isn't geared to clear out these new chemicals. It has never encountered them. We evlevod to deal with toxins that are in the environment. We can deal with small quantities of mercury, small quantities of lead, but when they build up by human activity, we've increased the levels of these substances in the environment and the body can no longer cope." Besides, most of the new chemicals we're trying to process, we've no ability to cope with." While powerful computer modelling services are currently on offer to access the safety of chemicals in cosmetics, Dr Michael is not convinced: " Not at all, any more than computer modelling will accurately predict global warming. It's far too complicated. They won't ever be able to. The problem is of course that by now the earth is so heavily contaminated that there's no control population that have never been exposed. There is no such thing. Every one of us have between 300 and 500 new chemicals in the body, and we haven't a clue what they are doing to us." He also suggests there is emerging evidence that these chemicals are causing or contributing to some of the chronic diseases in society at the moment, such as Alzheimer's, obesity, hypertension, diabetes and various cancers. With international sales at stake, it is likely that many of the biggest players in the cosmetics game, such as Estee Lauder. L'Oreal and Avon, will attempt to bring out bring out various certified organic cosmetics - examples... Meanwhile, smaller companies may find it hard to afford to keep up. While using certified organic ingredients, and listing all ingredients in their cosmetics, Irish-based cosmetics who company Nadur organics say that "when we blend these (certified organic) ingredients we must then get our products certified - we will be doing this in phases as this type of certification requires a large monetary investment in research and development and a large time investment". There are very few certified organic cosmetics out there at present. "There are no organic standards for cosmetics in Ireland as of yet," says Angela Clarke of IOFGA, the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association. "EU-wide, the rules on the use of the word organic will again tighten up when the new EU organic regulations come in on January 1, 2009. Overall though, we don't intend to start certifying cosmetics in the foreseeable future". One of the difficulties is finding someone in Ireland who is an expert without also having a vested interest, says Clarke. In an exciting new development, the other main certification body in Ireland, the Organic Trust, have put procedures in place to begin certifying cosmetics organically. They are at an early stage in the development of the system: as of yet they have no products available. However, their stakeholder panel meets next month. Shortly after this, the list of approved ingredients will be made available.Currently, the British Soil Association is the only organic certifying agency that has standards for cosmetics in either Britain or Ireland with any products available. In other words, they provide third party independent validation for the products that carry their logo. And their status as an environmental charity and approved British government certifying agency ensures their independence. Balm Balm, Spiezia and Pai are three companies in the cosmetics, face and body care sectors who have organic certification from the Soil Association. Balm Balm have just developed a certified organic fragrance range. They have seven 'single note' perfumes which have just gone on the market, including lavender, rose geranium, ylang ylang and mandarin. Nevertheless, the options are extremely limited.I asked Lula of lovelula.com, the specialist on-line cosmetics retailing outlet specialising in the natural, BHID-end of the spectrum, about the situation: "it is. too limiting to consumers currently to seek to buy all their cosmetic products with Soil Association certification. while certification bodies work together on a set of common standards consumers can't wait." The European Commission have recognised the problem with chemical exposure. The new REACH regulations aim to clean up the chemicals industry. According to the European Commission, there are 100,106 chemicals registered for use in the EU that can be used without testing. Indeed, only a handful (about 3,000) of the available chemicals actually have been tested since some regulations were introduced in 1981. A new more stringent chemical regime will come into play from June of this year, with the launch of REACH and the European Chemicals Agency. This will enforce stricter rules for the use of chemicals in the EU, while also registering another 30,000 chemicals for use over the next 11 years. In the meantime, you can always have a look yourself at what's in the product. Go to the site managed by the Environmental Working Group: www.cosmeticsdatabase.com. Type in the name of your favourite cosmetics - there's an A-Z there. You will find details on ingredients and their potential negative effects. (As this is a US site, do compare the products' ingredients lists with the one you have actually bought: there are regulatory differences between the US and EU, and consequentially sometimes ingredient differences) In the meantime, look out for either the BDIH or Soil Association logos.
