Why do cosmetics retailers need business insurance?

When you work in the beauty industry, you could be held liable for adverse effects to products, such as an allergic reaction to perfume. Business insurance helps pay for legal costs if a customer sues over an injury or damaged property. It also covers theft of inventory, fires, and car accidents.
