Chris Schwegmann Comments on Avoiding Counterfeit Makeup on Healthline
A raid in Los Angeles discovered counterfeit cosmetics made with animal waste, and Healthline is making the public think twice about where consumers should buy makeup. LPCH partner, Chris Schwegmann, warns people to be suspicious of great bargains when it comes to purchasing makeup by saying, "Usually, the price is the best tipoff that the goods are counterfeit. If the price looks too good to be true, it is usually a sign that you are buying counterfeit goods, especially if you see these products on a website like Amazon or eBay."
“Consumers should also watch to avoid purchasing old and expired cosmetics on these same websites,” Schwegmann adds. “Unscrupulous online [sites] will sometimes sell ‘authentic’ cosmetics — meaning cosmetics manufactured by the name on the label — but is very old or long since expired. Always check the expiration dates. Old and expired cosmetics, particularly sunscreens, can also cause problems.”
