    Tati maybe you should invite a dermatologist that you trust to your channel and have people ask questions. That would be fun :)

    I love your channel, but as a chemistry major, hearing you talk about chemical groups as if they all interact or make a molecule do the same thing shows your lack of actual knowledge of the field. A lot of people use the chemistry lingo, but don’t understand what generalizations they are actually making. It’s perfectly fine and great if you say “hey, I don’t like this because it didn’t work for me,” but please be careful about telling people things are bad if you’re using such general terminology. Saying all alcohols are drying and all silicones are pore clogging is very short sited. These terms are used as descriptors of molecules with certain groups (ie alcohols) on them, so there are hundreds of thousands of molecules that do drastically different things all that can be classified as alcohols. I love hearing information about things from you, but if you’re going to make a more opinionated video about skincare, please label it as such as opposed to implying you know the literature on the topic. I don’t mean to hate; I just hear these terms thrown out a lot incorrectly and felt the need to say something.

    I love you but please educate yourself a bit more before doing a video like this 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️
    Had an argument with someone once who was like ewww can’t believe you’d use something that has Niacinamide in, why would you want to use chemicals?! ... it’s vitamin B3 just has its chemical name instead... so sick of this ‘ahhh chemicals’ crap. ‘Chemicals’ are what make up everything they’re not some nasty thing.

    I’m a bit confused by you criticizing the people that say an ingredient may be bad for you but it’s in such a small amount that it isn’t harmful/doesn’t effect you, while you also said the same exact thing in your Halo video when people were concerned about things ingredients Saw Palmetto and a couple others. Your words were that yes it can be harmful, but it’s such a small amount that it will have no negative effects. Yet in this video you disagree with that reasoning for certain ingredients in these skincare products and say you won’t use a product even if it IS a small amount of the ingredient. This seems very contradictory and makes me even more hesitant about your claims because you don’t seem to hold your own products to the standard of your skincare from other companies? Maybe it just needs explained further? I love Tati and I know she doesn’t claim to know it all like she said in the video but I think if you’re going to make a video making claims to a wide audience of people who are going to take your word as fact because they trust you, you need to have ALL of the correct information first. This is a video that would be better left to actual beauty chemists because a lot of what’s said here seems scientifically inaccurate. Just my feels 💗 I appreciate the effort on her part though, it isn’t easy to learn these ingredients and there’s A LOT of pseudoscience out there regarding them

    I'm confused why skincare products with these ingredients aren't good but it's ok to use them in makeup.

    Tati, Cetearyl Alcohol (in Laneige toner) is not bad. There are 2 kinds of alcohol and most of them are bad, but there are few fatty alcohols that are actually good for your skin. Recently I became obsessed with analyzing ingredients too and I found out that sometimes organic brands (and web sites about natural skincare) make big deal out of nothing just to sell their "clean" stuff. I of course agree with you that some ingredients are just unneccesary (like fragrance) and some are just there as fillers that do nothing for your skin. I'm at this point now too, where I do so much research and come to the conclusion that the more you dive in, the more complicated it gets. But I'm on board with you a 100%! We should all educate ourselves and make better choices. There is so much on the market, so why not we chose the best stuff, right?

    Why does this feel like she’s gearing up to release her own skin care products. Wait for it...I couldn’t find anything that was pure and worried 100% perfectly and didn’t smell bad so I made my but seriously, I enjoy her makeup vids but she doesn’t know what she’s talking about when it comes to ingredients.

  • Michelle Williams

    Tati so many of the makeups you try have parabens and fragrance etc, you haven't using those right?

    I'm so glad you've moved away from fragranced skin care.
    A couple years ago I urged you to back away from the scented products you loved so much...I remember there was some body butter that you adored, but also body washes and moisturizers.
    But yeah, we shouldn't be slathering perfume all over ourselves, and especially our faces.

    First off, this drag queen loves your videos.
    With that said, I work for a major skin care company in Sweden, with the developing laboratory right in our office. That means I have close and frequent contact with our chemists and product developers, some of them with over 20 years experience of developing skin care.
    There are a lot of misinformation, or rather, not scientifically based stements in this video.
    For example parabens. There are no scientific studies that prove or even state that methyl and ethyl parabens (which are the two parabens that may be used according to EU regulations) may be dangerous. The fear of parabens originated after a study showed that mice, who were forced to ingest copious amounts of propyl parabens showed signs of possible organ growth. Skin care companies know that parabens are safe, the only reason for making paraben free products is because consumer wants it based on misinformation.
    The same goes for “natural” versus “artificial”. A molecule is a molecule. The body doesn’t know the difference. In fact, there’s a higher probability of impurities and allergens in a “natural ingredient...
    Also, I wish people would stop saying “ingredient” when talking of a substance they believe is safe, and saying “chemical” when talking about something they think is bad or dangerous. Every ingredient in a skin care product is a chemical. Even water, when used as an ingredient, is a chemical by classification.
    Still, love your channel, but I think you really ought to talk to a chemist about all this for more a nuanced view on ingredients and their properties.

    I am allergic to parabens thank goodness for natural and organic brands

    Tati is right ! Fragrance in skincare can be an irritant,if not immediately somewhere down the road. I watch Dr.Dray YouTube channel, a REAl dermatologist and she says it all the time. She also said drugstore products are all you need to take care of your skin.

    Certain ingredients may be listed harmful at 100% concentration in the MSDS. However, many of these ingredients are used at very low percentages in skin care and sometimes even added in food as well.
    Tati, as a consumer, you are at total liberty to use products formulated without glycols, parabens, mineral oil, etc. However, I think you do huge disservice to cosmetic chemists and brands by alleging there are harmful ingredients in skincare.
    Cancer is a complex disease. Skin cancer is mainly caused by unprotected sun exposure. 90% of lung cancer is caused due to smoking. Water in large dosages can kill so can driving a car. Awareness is great but paranoia is not. People are living far longer and expected to live longer as more medical advancements are made. I dont think my Estee Lauder ANR--or Cerave PM Lotion is going to shorten my life because it has sodium hydroxide and parabens.

    Why do LA people run away screaming from any preservative (paraben, etc.), yet go see Dr. Rosenberg the same day to get toxin and silicone injections put into their face? I’ll never understand.

    So I am a biochemist and a pharmacologist. I react to essential oils and so called natural fragrances. I say so called because everything is synthesized or extracted in a lab. I, along with other researchers and MDs. MD PhDs understand that we need to look at a molecule's structure because that is what dictates it's function and the increased possibility of an adverse effect. However, there are no molecules out there that do not illicit an adverse reaction in someone!!! Meaning there is NOTHING that is HYPOALLERGENIC out there!!!! Silicones fill out wrinkles, smooth out the epidermal surface and act as occlusives. I have extremely dry skin so they are extremely important in my skincare. Tati, you need to get informed: there is a genetic basis to inflammation NOT just the environment i.e. what one eats and applies to one's skin!!! I eat healthy but I still developed psoriasis and eczema when I was in my teens. I am now in my late thirties and I also have psoriatic arthritis. My mom has the same problems, my dad has psoriasis and other members on both sides of the family struggle with systemic inflammatory conditions. I think this is important for you to know.

    Uh I hate the term "educate yourself". NO. Tati asks for constructive feedback before she says anything else. If you know she's wrong about something, and you're confident in your own knowledge, share it. Otherwise, there's no point in saying anything.
