How Cosmetic Companies Get Away With Pseudoscience

Anti-aging creams make absurd claims that they repair DNA damage or use stem-cell treatments. When cosmetics companies and dermatologists partner to maximize profits, who is responsible for protecting the consumer?

...
 First coined by a prominent dermatologist in 1984, “cosmeceutical” is not an officially recognized term by the Food and Drug Administration. It has since been used to describe an ever-expanding range of over-the-counter topical skincare products with implied biological, drug-like capabilities. Euphemistic jargon abounds, with phrases like “therapeutic cosmetic” and “active treatment.” And yet, while the FDA aggressively investigates pharmaceuticals and medical devices before they hit the market, requiring extensive laboratory and clinical testing to demonstrate safety and efficacy, cosmetics (including cosmeceuticals) completely escape their regulatory purview.

[...] To make matters worse, the popular press is rarely critical of new beauty products. While I found many excellent and balanced media stories on beauty treatments (usually panning them), the vast majority of articles simply trumpet their alleged value, using vague descriptors such as revitalize and radiate. Rarely did I find any real evidence or expertise beyond personal testimonies (which I don’t need to remind you are not evidence). The so-called experts who are quoted in these stories are often part of the beauty industry or individuals with no research background. To cite just one example, a frequently quoted “expert” who is a beauty columnist for a well-known women’s-health magazine, and an advocate for all things pseudoscientific, describes herself as an eco-advisor, television personality, and restaurateur—interesting resume, for sure, but hardly a background that lends itself to a critical analysis of beauty products. [...]

t is no surprise, then, that celebrity anti-aging activities, whether mildly nutty or utterly senseless, usually evade informed scrutiny. For example, many newspapers and magazines reported, often without a single reference to science, that Kate Middleton used a bee-venom facial as a needle-free shortcut to youthful, line-free skin. A similarly uncritical attitude characterized stories about Demi Moore’s famous leech therapy (which, as one source boasts, “cleanses the blood, improves circulation, and boosts tissue healing”) and the use of snails on the face, favored by celebs such as Katie Holmes, that, as reported by Glamour, leave a trail of “mucus that’s packed with proteins, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid, which leaves the skin looking glowy and refreshed.” Apparently, the face-crawling gastropods are fed only organic vegetables.

Não conhecia o termo "metroafetivo". Eu diria que trata sobre homens que tem atração por questões/aspectos da metrópole.

E como descobrir?  :?

Deve-se primeiramente se orientar pela propaganda e definições "técnicas" dadas pelo fabricante? Ou outra coisa?

O termo "metrossexual" é metrofóbico, porque reduz a metroafinidade a algo apenas sexual, removendo todo o resto da experiência humana/social.
