Editor’s note: This second in a two-part series looks at specific ingredients of concern due to reported adverse effects—although, notably, not necessarily from typical cosmetic exposure routes or levels. Part I, from the July/August 2018 edition, reviewed the regulatory status of cosmetics, adverse event reporting and studies attempting to link cosmetics with contact dermatitis. Together, the two aim to identify public concerns in order to inform product developers and improve user experiences.
