What You Put ON Your Skin Matters….. Almost 13,000 chemicals are used in cosmetics, yet only approximately 10 percent are evaluated for safety, as reported by Dr. Mercola, from an analysis of Environmental Working Group (EWG).
In the report “Heavy Metal Hazard: The Health Risks of Hidden Heavy Metals in Face Makeup,” Environmental Defence tested 49 different make-up items: foundations, concealers, powders, blushes, mascaras, eye liners, eye shadows, lipsticks and lip glosses. The report revealed serious heavy metal contamination in these products. (96% had lead, 90% had beryllium, 61% had thallium, 51% had cadmium, 20% had arsenic.)
*It can be tricky finding products that contain ingredients that are not harmful and contain healthy ingredients in sufficient amounts to make a difference.
This is why I have sought out suppliers who are committed to their passion of sharing true health with the community, through skin care; who do not compromise for a bigger profit, faster result or mass production.
