No.33 for example, are some of the cancer-causing agents found in moisturizing creams and then this perhaps is just the tip of the iceberg. A typical facial cleanser is said to have 21 cancer causing agent, facial mask 12 and facial scrub,8. And the truth is we need just one such agent to create havoc!
