An Unregulated Industry

1,100 chemicals that are banned in Europe are still allowed in the US, in our lotions, shampoos, lipsticks, aftershaves and other personal care products -- baby products included.

Of the 80,000 chemicals used in this country, only 200 have been tested for safety.

This video tells us that the average woman exposes herself to 167 different chemicals on her body and face during her daily beauty regime.

It continues to offers points on what to look for and avoid. You DO want to study the small print before you buy.

There is no reason that companies that make chemical-free beauty products shouldn't be just as affordable and available -- we just have to support them.

They also tend to be the ones that don't test on animals.

Some products we may be able to do without. Some we can make our own home made versions of. Imagine all the money and packaging we'll be saving while avoiding all these toxins...
