Cosmetic Safety Database
After the chapstick incident yesterday, which years from now will lovingly be referred to as the lip smacker incident of 2010, I remembered a website my next door neighbor, an environmentalist, has been crazy about. It is called Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database created by the Environmental Working Group. This database includes information on make-up, skin care, hair products, nail care, baby products and sunscreen.
The Lip Smacker Tropical Punch not only contains ingredients linked to allergies, but also ingredients that are neurotoxins, developmental and reproductive toxins. Check it out. Needless to say I will not be using that product in the future.
