It’s the holiday season and cosmetics consumers are on the hunt to find a deal out there. Unfortunately, bargain prices and deals that seem too good to be true often bring the possibility of fraudulent, and dangerous, counterfeit products with them.
- Counterfeit cosmetics are a huge danger to shoppers, especially during the run-up to major holidays.
- There is a long list of dangerous ingredients commonly found in counterfeit cosmetics.
- Counterfeiters pay no heed to consumers’ safety, and flagrantly ignore safety laws and regulations.
- Fake cosmetics products are created in filthy, unhygienic illegal laboratories.
In an industry like cosmetics, it can become a more dangerous adventure than anyone usually imagines. It’s not as simple as realizing you ended up with a fake Louis Vuitton handbag and wishing you had the real deal and hadn’t been taken. With counterfeit cosmetics, the dangers lurk inside the product with the ingredients that are used to make the product look as close to the original as possible.
