Want to make £1million (1.1 million US Dollars) the easy way?

Want to make £1million (1.1 million US Dollars) the easy way?

All you have to do is identify a truly chemical-free product.  That should be pretty easy with so many companies claiming to have “chemical-free” products.  A £1million bounty was offered for UK’s first chemical-free product in February 2010, but so far no one has claimed the prize?  I wonder why?  Could it be that those who make such claims know they are tricking the public for personal gain and profit?  To expose this trickery, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) announced the would award a  £1 million bounty to the first person who can crack this impossible task and create a product that is truly 100% chemical-free.

Why did this prestigious society offer this challenge?   Research by the UK’s cosmetic and toiletries industry reveals 52% of women and 37% of men actively seek out chemical-free products, demonstrating a deep-seated public confusion about chemicals and how we interact with them in daily life.

The facts are, the vast majority of chemicals that people come into contact with each day are not only safe, they are beneficial and essential for life. Our bodies are constantly manufacturer chemicals.  For example proteins are chemicals made by other chemicals called amino acids. This process requires use of the powerful chemical solvent known as water.  Yes, water and air are chemicals, as well.
