Q: The ingredients lists in some of my skincare products scare me. What are these chemicals, and are they harmful?

Have you ever looked at the label of a skincare product and thought, “I don’t recognize any of these ingredients!”? You’re not alone. Many of today’s cosmetics and skincare products are made from a combination of chemical substances with long, unpronounceable names that look frightening, especially when you consider where they’ll end up—slathered all over your face and body.
