Myth

“60% of what we put on our skin ends up in our bloodstream”

Luckily, the skin is a pretty good barrier that keeps the outside world out. It's actually a formulation challenge to get ingredients in your cosmetic products to absorb even just into the layers of the epidermis, let alone the dermis and beyond. Cosmetic products at large typically just interact with the outermost layer of your skin. Any ingredient proven to show absorption would be banned or requre significantly more safety data to be permissable.
