The very next paragraph on same page:
“Phenol can have positive effects when used for medical reasons. It is an antiseptic (kills germs) when put on the skin and may also have antiseptic properties when gargled as a mouthwash. It is an anesthetic (relieves pain) and is a part of some sore-throat remedies (lozenges and formulas).”
On Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenol
“Phenol is also used in the preparation of cosmetics including sunscreens, hair dyes, and skin lightening preparations.
In cosmetic surgery, phenol serves as an exfoliant. It is also used in phenolization, a surgical procedure used to treat an ingrown nail, in which it is applied to the nail bed to prevent regrowth of nails. 5% Phenol is sometimes injected near a sensory nerve in order to temporarily (up to a year) stop it from transmitting impulses in some intractable cases of chronic neuropathic pain.”
So the entire cosmetic industry has gone nuts?? or fools as you put it? The answer is Phenol is NEVER used in full concentration FOOL! it’ll probably burn straight through your skin/organs.
And NO ONE is suggesting people to use Phenol peels. I started the thread to find out what happened to that slaphead guy. Go keep yourself occupied with transvestie p0rn, since you have no life!
