What does the label on cosmetics really mean


Almost everyone reads a label on a cosmetic product but what do the words really mean?

1. Retards aging: contains a sunscreen

2. Dermatologist tested: a dermatologist was paid to review it--nothing about results

3. Data on file: does not tell whether positive or negative

4. Moisturizing: contains water

5. Fragrance free: may still contain chemicals to mask odors of substances in the product

And remember ingredients are listed in the order of their concentration--the first is the most and it is always water.
