Did you know that manufacturers of professional cosmetics are not required to disclose their ingredients? Unlike consumers, who can look at ingredient labels on their store-bought cosmetics, hair and nail salon workers don’t benefit from the same disclosure.
Salon workers use professional-grade products day in and day out, breathing in fumes, handling products and exposing ourselves as well as our clients to unknown chemicals. Our health pays the price — bloody noses, rashes, headaches and blurred vision.
