ABOUT US - OUR STORY
From Dr. Catherine - Founder of Dr.C Lab:
I have been working as a cosmetics R&D and lab manager for years in Japan and America to research and develop new cosmetic products before I decided to settle down with Dr.C Lab in the Bay area. I know how much chemistry brings civilization to humankind. The nature of chemistry is not bad; it only becomes bad when people abuse it for improper purposes. The irritation with cosmetics when new to Japan has left me with many concerns about the thing called "cosmetics". When working in cosmetic R&D labs in Japan and America, I started to be "enlightened" a few things. I myself had the feeling of being "bewildered and confused" when I had to come into contact with cosmetic ingredients, which could emit toxic gas at high temperature. In addition, just a little overdose could make the ingredients go from harmless to highly toxic. There are ingredients that should not be inhaled or be contacted directly to skin, and a lot of ingredients with extremely high level of potential harm with long-term use... I was always wondering if we are actually look forward to "being beautiful" from such dirty ingredients? Why do we accept such chemicals on our faces and bodies ???
The more experienced I became as a scientist in this cosmetic world - an insider who sees through each product, each ingredient - the more I'm able to notice of a lot of health concerns that the people who come in contact with the product from the outside (like marketers, sellers, bloggers ...) never see. And, of course, that's what billions of consumers never see: The UGLY face of the BEAUTY world! More than 13,000 chemicals are abused in the cosmetic industry, but less than 10% of them are safe. According to some prestigious organizations in the United States working on the safety of chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products, women put on their face and body about 168 types of different chemicals every day, including those with high levels of toxicity and potential harms of cancer or infertility.
For cosmetics, besides processing techniques, the most important things are the sources of raw materials and how you combine and formulate the ingredients... These two factors also play decisive roles in the SAFETY of the products. All reputable manufacturers must pay attention to SAFETY. However, how much they care about it is another thing. With mass-market cosmetics, even in Japan or in the US, due to price competition as well as the demand to keep products for a very long time, it is difficult to avoid using a lot of chemicals. That's not to mention, just to create a feeling of "good sensory, good after-feel," the ways in which products deceive user psychology. Many manufacturers do not hesitate to use chemicals that are easy to cause irritation or health effects in the long run. Of course, those don't really bring any real benefit to the skin. I feel worried because consumers are always blinded from the true nature of a product. Why choose cosmetics made from chemicals & fillers while natural ingredients are really effective savers for our skin? Why waste money on chemicals and advertising, but not spending on what really benefits your skin? If consumers have a chance to KNOW (as I was lucky to), I believe they will CHOOSE to leave chemicals.
