Pseudoscientific products that claim to help treat or even cure coronavirus are everywhere on the internet. In tandem, the FDA continues to crack down on products proving more harmful than helpful. Feeding off the fear of COVID-19, many companies tout misleading health claims for their products such as “immune-boosting” or “antiviral.” Yet, little do consumers know that these tactics symbolize a long-standing issue within product development that can negatively impact the health of people and the planet. Recent articles on the long-term harmful impacts of BPA, pesticides, endocrine disruptors, and more, display an ugly truth about the malleability of safety claims associated with our everyday products. The gray area is vast, and COVID-washing is only giving us a glimpse.
Skincare proves itself as the main pandemic go-to within the overall beauty industry. Serums, masks, and at-home spa tools thrive due to the uptick in popular health and wellness marketing. Consumers are saying good-bye to makeup that ruled the last decade, and hello to “clean beauty.” But how clean is the beauty industry right now? Is “clean” within beauty and fashion a misnomer? This month, articles have highlighted that consumers are not backing down from their demands for more sustainable and inclusive brands. Although many brands may be eager to hop on the bandwagon, their journey toward being genuinely sustainable is long and deeply tangled with other industries that need improvement.
