New Study about Major Toxins in Cosmetics

According to the Organic Consumers Association, a new report revealed that virtually every cosmetic product tested contained a potentially dangerous or proven toxic heavy metal.

Lead and arsenic aren't listed among the ingredients of lip gloss and eyeliner. However, Environmental Defence, a Canadian environmental group tested dozens of common cosmetics products and found that virtually all of them were contaminated with heavy metals.

The environmental defense tested 49 cosmetic products including: powders, concealers, mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and glosses. Ninety six percent of the products contained lead and many other heavy metals.

After being a beauty consultant for two years, I decided to only use all natural skin care and cosmetics to reduce the amount of toxins that are absorbed in my body. As a beauty consultant, I wanted to become very knowledgeable about the products that I sold.

Moreover, after much research on the products that I was selling, I was not happy to discover that the products contained ingredients that were virtually toxic to my customers skin. Furthermore, it was a tough decision, but I decided to promote and only use all natural skin care products.

To your health & wellness,
