Harrogate is an important and influential town in North Yorkshire, having first made a splash by becoming established as a spa town in Georgian England. The beneficial iron-rich waters were discovered in the 16th century, and the tourists flocked. Its popularity grew into wide-ranging fame in the 17th and 18th centuries.
A leaden expression
Eighteenth-century English culture embraced a strange mixture of values. Health-giving waters at towns like Harrogate and Bath, in the West of England, were recognised for their restorative properties, but beauty products for elegant aristocratic ladies were pure poison. Face powder contained lead to whiten it, and persistent users died young. Before the toxic effects of ingredients were really understood, harmful and unhygienic ingredients were often used for ladies’ make-up, ranging from crushed beetles to seaweed, and trace elements like iron, and bromine, another poison. Many such chemicals were used for their colour. Fortunately these days, cosmetics manufacturers are able to use a range of synthetic benign ingredients to help women create their look.
Why would I need injury lawyers in Harrogate?
You might have suffered a chemical reaction from hair dye, if you went to the hairdresser for a new treatment, and they skipped the skin test. These things can be deceptive. We become more allergy-sensitive with age, so the dye that didn’t bother you before might bring you out in a rash this time, and you should ask for the skin test. You might have suffered clinical negligence from any kind of procedure. Going on, you could have suffered a non-fault injury from a road traffic accident, an accident at work, or a fall in a public place, whichever, if your injuries resulted from someone else’s negligence, you could have a case to make a compensation claim, and we can locate injury lawyers in Harrogate to advise you.
