Glowing Cosmetics for the Everyday You

I am a conservative. What most humans on this planet do not realise is a conservative person is not nailed to a bible, against gay marriage or gay anything, obsessed with sex only after marriage, et cetera, a conservative is someone who is resistant to change. We do not want to sit in our traditions with our shotguns, pointing them at anyone or anything that wants to introduce change; conservatism is support for gradual change.

But why would you be resistant to change? Why on earth would you not want for the world to embrace these new ideas and advancements that the movers and shakers of this world have to offer? Um, remember DDT and asbestos? We, as a society, embraced those two like a leper to Jesus; and look how that turned out for us – there is something about DDT wallpaper and asbestos oven mittens that really should rang some alarm-bells. Well if you think those were bad, enter radioactive cosmetics.

An ever-flowing Fountain of Youth and Beauty has at last been found in the Energy Rays of Radium.

When scientists discovered Radium they hardly dreamed they had unearthed a revolutionary “Beauty Secret.” They know it now. Radium Rays vitalize and energize all living tissue. This Energy has been turned into Beauty’s aid. Each and every ‘Radior’ Toilet Requisite contains a definite qualtity of Actual Radium.

1918 advertisement from London’s Radior Co. Ltd.

Radior had radium in everything: vanishing cream, soap, rouge, talcum powder, face powder in six tints (Blanche, Naturelle, Rachel, Flesh Ochre and Brunette), compact powder, hair tonic, night cream and assorted face pads. These products where rather popular in Commonwealth countries and were guaranteed to all contain radioactive products, reinforced by the following Sydney Morning Herald advertisement from 1915:

“Radior” Chin straps are guaranteed to contain Radio-active substance and Radium Bromide. If placed on the face where the skin has become wrinkled or tired the radio-active forces immediately take effect on the nerves and tissues. A continuous steady current of energy flows into the skin, and before long the wrinkles have disappeared, the nerves have become strong and energised, and the tired muscles have become braced up and “ready for service.”

Radior were not the only cosmetic company trading off of tumours inducing beauty products, Tho-Radium came along in the 1930s which was a combination of thorium chloride and radium bromide (as the brand name suggests). This French company added lipstick, toothpaste and cleansing milk to the already frightening beauty line up just to ensure that no radioactive stone is left unturned. Although T-R never made it to any English speaking countries, it still chills you to the bone to think what can happen when you jump on any new product or idea before you test the sheer crazy-sauce out of it.


Good old conservatism…
