The ugly face of cosmetic products


Carcinogens in baby shampoo? Lead in lipstick :( Neurotoxins in body spray!
Major loopholes in U.S. federal law allow the $50 billion cosmetics industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no monitoring of health effects and inadequate labeling requirements.
Cosmetic industry calls Annie's Leonard's video "shockumentary"!

So what's really in your products? Read what Annie Leonard has to say HERE
One more reason (after animal testing) to read your labels carefully and source your products. A great way to do so is to look for my EtsyEarth Teamates shops in the personal care category.



We spotted this baby wash from HerbanLifestyle: Gentle and made with pure, organic ingredients, with no artificial fragrances or other petroleum-derived substances. We like the recyclable 8oz PET bottle, with a 100% recycled label printed with vegetable ink. Use it with our soft CurlyMonkey wash cloth and bath mitt! :)
