Toxic cosmetics and chemicals are not safe for children, according to a new study published in the journal Nature.
The findings are a reminder that toxic products are not limited to the cosmetics aisle, according the researchers.
It is the first time that the toxicology database has been updated to include children, and the researchers say the database will continue to be updated as new information becomes available.
Toxicology data is the most comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of the health effects of cosmetics and other substances.
It has already been used to warn consumers about cosmetic hazards, but it also provides insight into the health risks associated with the use of chemicals, such as perfumes, toothpastes, hair care products, and personal care products.
The study found that only 5.5 percent of cosmetics tested had a positive test for chemicals that can cause cancer or reproductive harm.
It also found that less than 1 percent of cosmetic products tested had traces of a potentially carcinogenic substance.
The authors note that the database contains data from over 100,000 cosmetic products and more than 4 million tests were conducted on these products.
In addition to the chemicals listed in the database, the authors found that many cosmetics have been used for decades without any toxicological testing.
The database also includes products that have been sold without testing and have not been identified as toxic by the FDA.
“We found that the majority of cosmetics, and even the most common cosmetics, have not undergone any clinical toxicological tests, even though there are some studies suggesting that the safety of cosmetics can be improved through a variety of chemical treatments,” said study lead author Dr. Aneeta Chaudhuri, an associate professor of environmental toxicology at the University of California, Berkeley.
“It is our hope that this database will help us understand the impact of these cosmetic products on children’s health and to improve the safety and efficacy of these products in children.”
The study also found the majority (51 percent) of cosmetics had a “positive” test for a chemical that can kill or damage skin.
The other 34 percent had a negative test.
The results of this study suggest that the chemical found in some cosmetics, particularly those that are not tested, is not necessarily harmful to children, the researchers said.
This finding means that many products, including those sold in most grocery stores, could pose a health risk to children.
Chaudheuri said that while there have been a number of studies that have indicated the potential for cosmetic use to cause harm, the database is the largest and most comprehensive database of toxicological data available.
It could also be used to improve safety measures, such in the cosmetics industry.
“The more we can identify these chemicals and the more we understand the health consequences of these chemicals, the better we can prepare for these chemicals to be used in future,” Chaudsheuri said.
“Children have been exposed to toxic chemicals before.
There is still a long way to go.”
Aneetabh Bhattacharya, director of the Center for Toxicology at Duke University Medical Center, said the study is “an important step forward” and will help scientists to better understand the potential risks posed by cosmetics.
“These results will provide additional insights into the toxicity of cosmetics,” she said.
Chretien M. Cepeda, president and CEO of the Cosmetic Institute of America, a trade association representing more than 70 cosmetic manufacturers, agreed.
“As cosmetic companies continue to grow, they need to do more to safeguard the safety, quality, and value of their products,” he said.
He said that cosmetics companies should continue to take steps to test for these substances and also develop and market safer products.
“Unfortunately, as cosmetics companies continue their expansion, the toxicological database that is being used to educate consumers about cosmetics, is outdated and lacking critical information,” Cepera said.
The researchers said they hope that the cosmetic industry will continue working with the FDA and other stakeholders to develop safer cosmetics.
The toxicology data will be updated periodically, the report said.
