Can beauty products cause cancer of the breast variety? Like using make-up, creams, and moisturizers for years?

In brief: No

Topical beauty creams have not been linked to cancer. In fact regular use of Retin-A over time on the applied area, has been shown to decrease skin cancer.
Hydroquinone in rat studies has shown some cancer associations but has not shown that in humans.
