Dove’s ‘Real’ Beauty Products Are Filled With Cancer-Causing Chemicals, Fake Dyes, And Toxic Fragrance
It's easy to love Dove, especially after their ad campaigns based on the idea of real women, rather than models, but unfortunately, it's even easier to hate their ingredients - many of which are toxic, or even carcinogenic!
As a result of such successful marketing campaigns, Dove is the world's number one soap and beauty brand, with sales topping $2.5 billion each year.
Unfortunately, some of their best-selling products are full of awful ingredients:
