Whitewashing is a figure of speech used to describe a cover up – something appearing to be straightforward, honest, and truthful, when in fact it is not. The word Greenwashing  refers to presenting misleading, exaggerated, or deceitful promises to falsely promote products advertised as natural, green, or environmentally friendly.

Why do beauty and cosmetic companies use Greenwashing to promote their products?

There is negligible regulation in the cosmetic industry. According to the FDA, “The law does not require cosmetic products and ingredients, other than color additives, to have FDA approval before they go on the market.”

How can you detect Greenwashing?

Be cautious. Read labels and ask questions before making a purchase you don’t feel sure about. There are still many reliable products available on the market today and many more to come. If you have questions about skin care, please feel free to contact me.
