More and more people are obsessed with hiding their every imperfection, every wrinkle or blemish. In order to achieve this, we use products made by the companies we trust, believing that they wouldn’t purposely put harmful materials in their creams, shampoos and other product just to save a few bucks. We are willing to pay more, just in order to avoid being poisoned or having our skin ruined with cheap products. But what happens when a high-end company, such as Dove, decides to put our health at risk just to reduce their production costs and increase the profit on their already expensive products?
What do they exactly put in their products?
