Refer to the image that shows a label of Highest Selling Herbal Face Wash that contains 28 chemicals listed on the label, with 20 toxic chemicals (per international standards).
Only 20% of the ingredients are shown on the product. Rest 80% is hidden.
Usually, the complete list of ingredients is not mentioned anywhere on the product. You cannot trace what goes into your body and how harmful it can be in long-term usage.
