Healthy Living- Blogging 5 Days- 5 Ways Day #4 : Cosmetics

The lurking Dangers.  Day #4

Yes, believe it or not...the cosmetics,hair spray,sunscreens, lotions,shampoos,creams,lipsticks,blush,nail polish,
shadows,mascara.........all have toxic chemicals. 
They have paraben, pesticides,DTT,petrochemicals,sodium laureth / lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol, polyethylen glycol, PEGS,PGS,Formaldehyde,synthetic dyes, artificial fragrances, and many more that I can barely pronounce!
All of these toxins go into our bodies. Some research suggests that all of the chemicals we put on our bodies lead to cancer and other ailments.

I am trying to get away from this toxic cosmetics. I am half way there. I started slow, choosing less toxic cosmetics.
 The scale goes like this:
                                      Conventional Cosmetics
                                      Naturally inspired
                                      Pure Natural
                                      Organic (certified)

I have a list of some cosmetic companies that range from the organic to the Naturally inspired.
