I was recently reading an Instagram post by a British blogger who cited a letter written by a Harvard business student to l'oreal. L'oreal had offered an internship to her, but she wrote a rebuttal email in reply. The problem I have with the letter is she is spreading lies about cosmetic science. She mentions parabens as being unsafe, but even I, a high school student (well one who is interested in cosmetic science), knows that parabens are safe. She cites the EWG, which we know isn't the best source for information. It is quite the shame in my opinion that she is doing this since she is spreading it via her blog and social media, even though she doesn't really have the knowledge or authority to be doing so. She is after all a Harvard business student, not a Harvard science student. Since she is a Harvard student, people are more likely to believe what she has to say (like the blogger), even though she doesn't have any real knowledge (it appears) about cosmetic science.
Here's a link to the site (which in my opinion has the tinge of not being knowledgable about cosmetic science): http://beautyliestruth.com/2014/11/loreal-tried-to-recruit-the-wrong-girl/
There is a post on the blog that states: "For natural hair in particular, any amount of sulfates are the devil" , which clearly shows they need to do more research.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!
