Would you put radioactive dirt on your face?


You won’t believe what they do to this model’s face to sell Dorothy Grey’s cold cream!

They put RADIOACTIVE dirt on her face to prove how well the cleanser works – they actually show the Geiger counter!

Fortunately, modern cosmetic chemists don’t use such potentially dangerous test methods. Today we can quantify residual oil and dirt through a variety of techniques like Gas/liquid chromatography or Atomic Absorption which don’t involve exposing the test subjects to radiation.

    *lol* Reminds me of the ads for “Thor-Radia” skin care I’ve seen in European magazines from the late 1920s to the early 1930s. Radiation to bring out your natural glow! 😉
