I’m working on a story about cosmetic products that aren’t what they say they are, e.g. a product packaged as “goat’s milk soap” that doesn’t list goat’s milk in the ingredients.
I’ve seen a couple of examples already and I want to see how common it is for businesses to pass off their products as something they’re not – or barely are.
If you come across toothpaste, moisturiser, perfume, makeup or another product used on the body that looks like it’s making a misleading claim about what it contains, I would love it if you could:
- Take a picture of the front of the item
- Take a picture of the ingredients list, and
- Send it my way: email@example.com
- Or send links to items sold online with an ingredients list that doesn’t match the packaging claims
