A Company Wanted To Make Women Glow With Beauty — So They Made Radioactive Makeup.
Back in the good old days, it was normal to see dangerous substances used as ingredients in everyday products. Mercury, lead, and even cocaine were commonplace. Kids played with toys that were covered in lead paint. Parents used cough medicine that was filled with cocaine.
And adult women used to put radioactive cold cream on their faces. Because…beauty is worth it?
If your Geiger counter’s ticking, you might want to run…not slather the cream all over your face.
Thankfully, modern scientific research and findings have made the public and corporations alike smarter. You can’t interact with harmful materials day in and day out without expecting some consequences. Who knows what happened to the skin cells that came in contact with the radioactive cream.
