How many chemicals are our skins being exposed to when we play sport and how should chemical information be expressed on consumer products?
skin & hair care products, make-up and nail products, antiperspirants and sports shirt.
If you use all of the above the total number of chemicals would be in excess of 200. There is no legal obligation to test any combinations of individual chemicals used in consumer products.
Even though individual chemicals have to be listed except for textiles, there is a significant problem with how consumers can understand and evaluate chemical information on consumer products. Which is why categorizing chemicals should be researched.
carcinogenic, hormone disruptor, bioaccumulative etc
