70% of all cosmetics in the USA are owned by less than 10 companies!
What are we buying?
If you’re buying in a department store or at huge chain pharmacies you’re probably buying from one of these companies:
L’Oreal, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Coty, Estee Lauder or Shiseido.
They own over 200 everyday brands and are controlled by men. These men answer to profits and stockholders only. They probably never used any of the the products they control!
Most raw materials are low quality and massively made and at the cheapest level. They spend an insane amount of money on packaging and marketing and the least amount they can on ingredients. It is by all counts a monopoly. They have all the power in the world to produce anything at the cheapest cost for purposes of profit and profit only. None of these companies are run by women!!! The next time you buy a product check out the packaging and marketing and especially ingredients. If the cosmetic industry is going to change, we have to be the ones to change it! How? By the choices we make!! You can check out online all the brands these companies make! You will be shocked!
