Do you know what is in your Cosmetics?

I found this interesting website called "Environmental Working Group Skin deep Cosmetic Safety Databse". It's an on-line database that lets you search products or ingredients and rates them from 0 to 10 for safety.

I spent a good 2 hours today going threw all the cosmetics and beauty products in our washroom to see how they rated.

This is an image of all the products that we decided were not safe enough for us to continue to use.

These are images of the products that were safe.

This is an image of the products that were not listed in the database and had no ingredients listed on the containers. How knows whats in them?

Take a moment to look up whats in your bathroom and you will be shocked.

Check out their CancerSmart 3.0. You can purchase the booklet and it also gives a list of products and what's in them. Background info can be found at:
