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