1. Introduction
As the old Chinese saying: “Everyone loves beauty”. Human have constant pursuit of cosmetics since ancient times. Han, a Chinese ancient document, had mentioned blacken eyebrows since 2000 years ago, and the cosmetic also plays a momentous role in the daily life. Furthermore, in the USA, Europe and Japan, different definitions of cosmetics are used. The Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in 1938 have classified cosmetics into 13 categories (Stehlin, D., 1991). According to the Act, a cosmetic is defined as an article intended to be rubbed, poured, sprinkled, or sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human body or any part thereof for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting structure or function (Elsner, P., &Maibach, H.I., 2005). Now cosmetics could be divided into two parts: natural cosmetics and chemical-based cosmetics. The essay will firstly introduce the natural cosmetic and focus on its advantages and disadvantages. Secondly, the essay will talk about chemical-based ones.
2. Natural cosmetics
Firstly, the natural cosmetic has grown to be a remarkable trend Nowadays,. For example, Earth Care in UK built strong competitive advantage and grew really fast since it started its new business plan (Johri, L.M., & Sahasakmontri, K., 1998). We understand and get pleasure from delicate balance of the nature and try our best to keep melody in existence at the same level. So we need to use more pure cosmetics which are nourishing us and not able to blight the natural world.
2.1 Strong points
Here are the advantages of natural cosmetics followed:
2.1.1 It is obvious that natural cosmetics have more pure raw materials, and it is not able to cause less harm to the earth. This is the reason why more environmentally-friendly companies are emerging (Johri, L.M., & Sahasakmontri, K., 1998). According to Elsner, P., &Maibach, H.I. (2005), “natural is good and synthetic is bad” for many consumers, so merchants would spare no efforts to do everything possible to meet the need of customers. Now residents are also more concerning about environment than before; furthermore, the government has put many environmental measures into action (Johri, L.M., & Sahasakmontri, K., 1998).
2.1.2 Natural cosmetics would cause fewer side effects than chemical-based cosmetics. I did a simple survey about cosmetic users and cause of side effects to the skin. 87.1% of the people use cosmetics (see Figure 1), and 94% of users believe that the chemical-based cosmetic would cause side effects while only 6% hold an opinion that natural cosmetics may cause side effects(Figure 2).
