That’s right ladies. Those commercial makeup brands are doing nothing for your skin or beauty. Skipping this isle would actually benefit your health as most are filled with toxins that, knowing their underling damage, you wouldn’t use.
The average woman puts 80 chemicals on her skin BEFORE breakfast. A tragedy!
It’s time to educate ourselves. It’s time our cosmetics were held to higher standards.
Skip it all together
According to a New York Times story published Wednesday August 2nd, contaminants such as mercury, lead and bacteria, and other banned ingredients, are showing up in an alarming number of imported personal care products. This follows recent news that asbestos was found in tests of imported makeup marketed to teens.
We are being poisoned by our beauty products and they are targeting teens.
Why hasn’t the FDA stepped in?
The FDA lacks both the authority and the resources to fully address the public health risks cosmetics can pose. While the agency can inspect imported cosmetics, foreign manufacturers currently have no obligation to tell the FDA where they are located, what products they are making or what ingredients they are using. From New York Times Article.
So… we stop wearing makeup?
There is no need to stop wearing makeup, but it would be wise to look into the companies you use and see if those products are imported.
There is also an app “EWG’s Skin Deep” that will help you rate your current makeup on a health scale.
Or… you could entrust your health and beauty products to a company that has been in business for over 20+ years, they hold the highest standards for purity, they’ve proven they are a company we can trust.
