Posted September 05, 2018 03:17:49 The beauty industry has been plagued by the issue of women getting plastic surgery.
It has become a source of frustration among women in the industry, as well as men.
In 2016, beauty products company Beauty Box, owned by Beauty Box founder and CEO, Joanna Brooks, was fined $1.9 million by the FTC for failing to disclose that it sold fake implants.
A 2014 report by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission found that over half of all cosmetic products tested were sold with plastic inserts, which can be harmful to the skin and eyes.
Beauty Box had to pay a $2.4 million fine to the FTC, and was banned from selling products containing plastic implants.
Beauty Box did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
According to the Center for Consumer Freedom, the plastic insert industry, which accounts for about 15 percent of beauty products sold worldwide, makes up about 60 percent of the market for all consumer products.
“It’s important to point out that plastic is not the only type of plastic,” said Michelle Dolan, vice president of health policy at the Center.
“It’s not the most harmful plastic.
It’s the most expensive plastic, which has a significant environmental impact.”
According to Dolan’s analysis of FDA reports, the FDA classifies plastics like stainless steel and polyethylene plastic as non-toxic, which means they can be reused without causing harm to the environment.
But the FDA does not require manufacturers to disclose how much plastic is used in their products, nor does it require that products are made from recycled materials.
When asked about the FDA’s reporting, a Beauty Box spokesperson said, “We take our responsibility to our customers very seriously and are currently working with the FDA to clarify the information and clarify the safety of our products.”
We’re working with them to develop a plan to educate consumers about the dangers of plastic and to create a safer environment for everyone,” the spokesperson added.
The company is also working to ensure that all of its products are sold in a way that does not lead to the ingestion of harmful plastic or plastic debris.
