Do you shop for products, including cosmetics, that are safe? Are your eyes drawn to packaging with words like “natural” or “pure” across the front? You assume since the label is marked “natural” you’re good to go. That may not be the case.
Unfortunately products with those labels may still contain a laundry list of ingredients that could be hazardous to your health. This is called greenwashing. The label makes you feel like you’re getting a trustworthy product but once you start researching the ingredients you discover otherwise.
A list of toxins that can be found in cosmetics:
- Coal tar
- Lake dye
- Mineral oil
- Nano particles
- Petroleum based ingredients
- Synthetic colorants
- Synthetic fragrances
What can you do? Start looking for makeup that is:
- toxin free
- plant based
- responsibly sourced
