Actually, yes, most popular brands of cosmetics, lotions, hair care products, etc. have toxic chemicals like talc, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, petrolatu…m, urea, etc. The industry isn't regulated, so check labels and try to find organic ingredients! These chemicals have been linked to cancer, acne, hormonal imbalances, and many block oxygen from penetrating the skin. Search on "makeup ingredients to avoid" and you'll find all kinds of useful info. and reasons why these ingredients are harmful. Companies use these chemicals to keep their products inexpensive and then consumers and the environment end up paying the price later after companies have made their money. Good luck!
There are many ingredients in Maybelline foundations. In most liquid foundations, the active ingredient is a sunblock called octinoxate. Skin conditioners, such as cyclopentas…iloxane, dimethicone, glycerin, tocopherol, isotridecyl isononanoate, and PEG-9 act as inactive ingredients. Sodium chloride is used to thicken the substance, and then preservatives are added to extend shelf life and prevent the growth of bacteria.

Preliminary research uncovered parabens in human breast cancer tumors. This does not prove a causal relationship, however. Parabens are ubiquitous. They are an estimated 75-90% of all personal care products. Even many so called "natural" and some organic skin care products contain parabens (check labels!). (source: www.naturalskincaresecrets.com) Talc is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos. Talc particles have been shown to cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs of cancer victims. For the last 30 years, scientists have closely scrutinized talc particles and found dangerous similarities to asbestos. Responding to this evidence in 1973, the FDA drafted a resolution that would limit the amount of asbestos-like fibers in cosmetic grade talc. However, no ruling has ever been made and today, cosmetic grade talc remains non-regulated by the federal government. This inaction ignores a 1993 National Toxicology Program report which found that cosmetic grade talc, without any asbestos-like fibers, caused tumors in animal subjects.1 Clearly with or without asbestos-like fibers, cosmetic grade talcum powder is a carcinogen. Q. What kind of exposure is dangerous? A. Talc is toxic. Talc particles cause tumors in human ovaries and lungs. Numerous studies have shown a strong link between frequent use of talc in the female genital area and ovarian cancer. Talc particles are able to move through the reproductive system and become imbedded in the lining of the ovary. Researchers have found talc particles in ovarian tumors and have found that women with ovarian cancer have used talcum powder in their genital area more frequently than healthy women.2 Talc poses a health risk when exposed to the lungs. Talc miners have shown higher rates of lung cancer and other respiratory illnesses from exposure to industrial grade talc, which contains dangerous silica and asbestos. The common household hazard posed by talc is inhalation of baby powder by infants. Since the early 1980s, records show that several thousand infants each year have died or become seriously ill following accidental inhalation of baby powder.3 Source: www.preventcancer.com
