Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

I've talked about de-toxing before because I think it's so important to care for our bodies. Recently, I read Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry which goes into detail about the incredible body burden we are all under. Women of child-bearing age are the most likely to have the most chemicals that can screw with a person in their bodies, which is seriously damaging the children they're having. It's messed up and it's totally legal for our cosmetic companies to sell us products full of lead and carcinogens.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is working to help make people aware of this problem and to hold companies responsible for operating ethically, in ways that won't make us sick:

To find out more, I highly recommend Not Just a Pretty Face. You can also get involved in changing the way this problem isn't addressed by our regulatory bodies on the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics website. For tips on detoxing, see the related posts below.

Vered, opinions like yours make me sick.

Corporations care nothing for gender, only profits.
