Feedback submitted to the site:
Dear Creators and Contributors of this Web Site,
Since discovering Personal Care Truth a few days ago, I have spent hours and hours perusing the web site and all I can say is … “WOW!” As an educator for a highly scientific product company, I spend SO much time trying to dispel myths and half truths that have been instilled in our clients by people who are not basing their statements on REAL science, but mis-informed, if (mostly)well-meaning ideology. Our industry is one of science and I think it is SO important that THAT is where we base our judgments on. I really appreciate that all of the writers on here seem to be approaching each topic from that angle and not from 1 of unfounded opinions. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! You have a HUGE fan in me and you can bet I will be sharing your url with MANY people in the industry!

Ladies, you have done a FABULOUS job on this website, and I and my business will be 100% on board with you. If you guys ever need any assistance, I am more than willing… Just yell. I will hear you!

First I’d like to thank you for gathering all this information and putting it in one place.
I was also very happy to read your articles on parabens and preservatives. They answered many questions I could not find the answers to and I can finally make an informed decision on what I want to use.
I would just like to congratulate you on an extremely balanced, fair, and open web site. I’m so tired of all of the scare tactics. Complimentary modalities, in my opinion, do a total mis-service by denouncing anything “chemical”. They can get as crazy and closed minded as the pharmaceutical execs. It was so refreshing reading through the stories that presented both sides in an evenhanded method. Thanks so much for the great job!

For years I have been frustrated with the CFSC, EWG and Skin Deep, and all the damage they cause with their half truths and scare tactics. I am an author and have written 5 Editions of my book regarding your skin and you, so I do my research. When I see an organization get the news media to scream across the country false information, poorly tested, and post that as a news alert I see red.
For this informative site, Personal Care or Scare, I thank the world that someone is finally standing up to these radical groups and putting them in their place. Now if we could just get the Media on board to also start checking their sources before they blast all over the airwaves false information and testing like in the “Lead” in lipstick, and lately the sunscreen damage they have done to scare people away from protecting themselves, is as bad as theses groups for posting false information.
All I can say is that Lisa and Kristin are a breath of fresh air that has been in need for so long. We should be thanking them daily for their efforts.
