David Suzuki Foundation has recently produced a Dirty Dozen list that names 12 most common but harmful chemicals you can easily find in regular beauty products, including lotions, cosmetics, shampoos, and body washes.
I'm blessed with a very open-minded and smart husband, and it is actually him who educated me about these chemicals years ago. We got on Cosmetics Database and looked up everything we had in our household. We were determined to throw out anything that got a hazardous rating of over 3. It turned out that we had nothing safe left to use.
Now, years later, I realize that I don't go down on the body care and cleaning isles in grocery stores, and I automatically skip flyer pages on these products too. I make my own soaps, I whip up my own lotions, and I just LOVE the way my skin and my hair feel! No nice fragrance or attractive packaging can ever convince me to go back, because I know my world is more beautiful.
Take the Dirty Dozen challenge and see how pretty your beauty products really are!
