These MAJOR Beauty Treatments Could Soon Be BANNED

Eyebrow and eyelash tinting could soon be banned entirely in the US.

The beauty treatments are already illegal in California because of the unregulated ingredients used in the tinting dye.

The ingredient in question is coal tar, and we must admit, as soon as we discovered they put this stuff near people's eyes we became more than a little bit uncomfortable.

In a statement to Refinery29, the FDA say coal tar "represent[s] an acute, severe hazard to health with the possibility of permanent injury; i.e., impaired sight, including blindness."

No beauty treatment is worth that risk. Brands use coal dye because tints are really hard to make without it, however here in Australia eyebrow and eyelash tinting are legal. It seems our products have been labelled safe for use by the NICNAS.

However, if you're concerned about any of the active ingredients used in your local salon, ask them what products they use and do some research online, knowledge is power!
