Caring for oneself: Am I ‘eating’ this??

FB_IMG_1520274003457

Why does it matter there has been a lack of federal regulations on beauty products?? I’ll give you ONE example.

Lipstick. 90% of all lipstick. Let me repeat that. NINETY PERCENT of all lipstick contains lead and harmful carcinogens. Ingredients used in personal care products aren’t required to be tested for safety on human health.
Reference here.

What can you do about it?
1) Throw away all your lipstick and go here – where you can purchase 2 lipsticks and save $10.

2) Ask Congress to require testing for safety on all beauty products;

3) Educate yourselves on which ingredients to stay away from: https://www.beautycounter.com/the-never-list/

The idea of supporting an initiative that seeks cleaner, safer personal products, while empowering women, reassuring them “They do not need to give up their health for beauty”, is definitely a cause dearly close to my heart. Change is already happening. No woman should be harmed for making her own choices or living her own life. No woman should compromise her health and safety for beauty. Stay beautiful. Stay safe. 💚🤗
