Dulcinea's Insight

  • Government-regulated sites like the FDA are a good place to start your research and stay informed about potential dangers or risks associated with cosmetic products. The FDA provides an official rundown of the current litigation information available for products on the U.S. market.
  • Nonprofit organizations concerned with natural products, fair trade, and organic produce are also valuable Web sites to check out (see below). However, you should always supplement the information you find on one of these sites with a second source, as each one has a distinct agenda and is not government-affiliated.
