Checking The Cream Using Iron And HVS Paper?
hi I want to ask, the doctor’s cream that I used, let me test using the iron not change color at all, the color remains the same as water, is it even dangerous?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. With technological advances like now, a lot of information is easily circulated on the Internet. One that may be quite popular with women is the safe checking method for using facial creams. Which is quite widely heard is a way to find out whether a cosmetic or facial treatment product contains mercury or not. As we know before, the use of mercury in face creams or other cosmetics has been banned because of the potential danger that is threatening.
According to the tutorial, we are asked to apply cream or other cosmetic ingredients to white HVS paper. Then the next step is to iron the paper with warm temperatures. Interpreting it is quite easy, if it turns black then it contains mercury and if it settles, then it does not contain mercury. The reason is said because mercury is a metal, which will turn black when exposed to heat from an iron.
Regarding your question, we do not know whether this method you are referring to or not, but apart from that, similar methods like this have not yet gone through clinical trials and sufficient research to apply to all cosmetics. Is it true that only mercury is blackened when exposed to heat, or is it true that every mercury must be blackened when exposed to heat, is still not widely proven. This really needs to be studied further, to avoid any false news such as coffee that can be lit when exposed to fire some time ago. So what we want to convey, methods like this that are spread on the internet we still cannot confirm the truth, and we cannot say must have been wrong or true until further research was conducted.
Therefore, in your case, actually by seeing a doctor, you should have done the right step. Your doctor is not likely to harm you because if it is proven he put dangerous goods that are clearly prohibited by the law, especially to harm the patient, he himself will lose. All the data has also been recorded in his license to practice so he could not dodge. So you don't need to worry too much.
But you need to understand too, distinguish dangerous ingredients with natural reactions when using cosmetics. Hazardous material is an ingredient that has indeed been researched and in fact is said to be dangerous because it has been associated with various adverse effects. But the reaction to using cosmetics, such as irritation, skin flushing, feeling hot, growing pimples and so on, comes from ingredients that are not dangerous, and not everyone who uses it will feel the bad effects, more than just a mismatch. This condition does not rule out the possibility of cosmetics that are indeed safe, and if it happens to you, you can simply go back to the dermatologist who treated you before. So, hopefully answering your question.
