It's 2018. We've made huge strides—leaps and bounds, even—in technology, science, and data, so we can expect that to reflect in our beauty and wellness products, right? Not always. Toxic, overpriced items with misleading labels are still placed on shelves and into the hands of un- or misinformed consumers, and considering these products are going on (or inside) our bodies, we can't really afford to take risks.
