The DW TV Prisma video series exposes the dangerous ingredients and unethical practices of the cosmetics industry, particularly in the production of cheap makeup in China that is sold all over the world. With little regulation, manufacturers use toxic and cancer-causing chemicals in cosmetics, putting consumers, particularly children, at serious risk. Fragrances can contain allergens, and the lack of testing and control means the use of harmful substances in cosmetics is widespread. The marketing of so-called 'natural' cosmetics is also confusing, making it difficult for customers to make informed decisions. The video also highlights the risks of online purchases, with no guarantee that the products are safe, causing health hazards. Overall, it highlights the urgent need for greater transparency and regulation in the industry to provide consumers with safe and ethical choices.
