I think the video is quite interesting but also a bit scary. I didn't know that only a few chemicals are tested for safety. In my opinion there should be new laws which protect us from toxics.
I agree with the woman, that green chemistry is the best solution for the problem because if chemicals aren't toxic in the first place we don't have to worry about which cosmetics to choose.
From now on, I will be more careful and I will look up on the internet which chemicals are safe and which aren't.
