Product of concerns and tips for Women of Color

  • Nail polish, products and treatments: Acrylic nail treatments are of concern for both those administering and receiving the nail treatment.
  • Hair relaxers: Hair treatments, including hair relaxers or Brazilian blowouts, expose women to some ugly chemicals. Hair relaxers (both lye and non-lye) are associated with hazards such as chemical scalp burn, scarring, dry skin, baldness, eye irritation, and dry broken hair.
  • Skin lighteners: Skin lighteners, which may also be marketed as skin lightening or spot and acne removal creams and lotions, often contain hydroquinone (a known endocrine disruptor), or worse, mercury.
  • Fragrance: Fragrance is often a driving force behind buying choices.
