Updated March 5, 2011 What Oprah doesn’t want you to know about cosmetics she has endorsed on her shows from Dr. Perricone.
Oprah’s website says that the ingredients in Dr. Perricone’s cosmetics are FDA approved? Can you believe this? Oprah, this chemical is as we say, not as the FDA approves and hardly a recommendation to your fans that it is at all safe.
Now here is an excellent excerpt
from Oprah’s site on a page from Val Says: which is total and
We are quoting it :
” On the other hand, according to the FDA, levels of parabens in cosmetics are so low that it’s “implausible that [they] could increase the risk associated with exposure to estrogenic chemicals,” meaning that the FDA thinks they’re safe. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review, an organization that assesses the safety of ingredients in cosmetics, supports that conclusion. And parabens do keep nasty microbes from invading our lotions and creams. ”

chemicals as safe in any product including skin creams and so called
anti-aging products. In fact the products will age your skin and
face faster than the normal rate of aging.

The targeting of an aging population seeking anti-aging products especially women and cosmetics is ripe for skin products but what is in these products?
Today women have choices but are they reading the labels of what they are putting on the largest organ of their body-the skin. The introduction of products on the skin is the quickest way to either enhance or detract from the aging process. Therefore people must be aware that you can introduce harmful or beneficial ingredients into their bloodstream in an instant.
The most beneficial products use organic, non-chemical and nutritious ingredients such as organic coconut oil, organic vegetable extracts and other natural products which do not contain chemicals or pharmaceuticals into the mix.
modern methods of cosmetics incorporate pharmaceuticals with
cosmetics which is called a cosmeceutical. See
for a more compete definition of the ingredients of cosmetics. The
question is are these cosmetic ingredients safe when combining
pharma ingredients and cosmetics together? No they are not.
Both Sides of the Anti-Aging Cosmetic Business
On one hand you have products such as cosmeceuticals in a billion dollar industry which is basically unregulated by the FDA. The allowance of harmful ingredients such as the new nano particles introduced in anti-aging cosmetics have been allowed on the market.
On the other hand you have doctors who appear to be dedicated to helping women appear on the Oprah Show with her full endorsement and promotion that need investigating further. One such doctor appeared on the Oprah Show and his name is Dr. N. Perricone.
Now Oprah does mean well but lacks the scrutiny of investigations on her website and basically her material confirms the safety of ingredients such as: parabens as we see in an article:
But getting back to Dr. Nicholas Perricone there is much left unsaid on Oprah’s website about this doctor and the nano particles in his cosmetic products. What is a nano particle? We searched for nano particles on Oprah’s site and found more ads about Celebrity Favorite Gifts, Favorite things for Summer and such dribble that it does not provide her fans with a very serious flaw in anti-aging products or cosmetics which contain nano particles. We also searched for nano particle cosmetics and found links to irresistible makeup and not one article on nano particles.
Our guess is that Oprah doesn’t know much about what is really in cosmetics targeted for women or about the nano particles in womens products. Here is a complete story about what you should know about Anti-Aging cosmetics and we are not selling any on this website. Read more to find out why.
