skincare and makeup products


Skincare and makeup products have become a necessity rather than a luxury. Because of constant advertising, we feel that these types of products are good for our health and beauty.

However, this is not true. Several ingredients in them are toxic and can cause even cancer.

That is why the European Union has banned more than a thousand ingredients in cosmetics, something that the USA has not done yet. 

That transparency is important. Look at what's inside products and seek out those that contain natural, plant-based ingredients - from toothpaste to cosmetics.

But it does not matter where you live, information on what to avoid is the best option for you today.

Some ingredients you should avoid do not sound even alarming, like:

  • Fragrance
  • Talc
  • and Alcohol

On the other hand, there are ingredients that you can not understand their presence by reading the label, such as lead.

These four ingredients are explained in this episode and more.

If you need more information you can go to the Europa information page on cosmetics. You can find the list of all the banned ingredients so you can avoid them.

At the end of the day, it is not the information we receive but our actions when we received them. So use safe skincare and makeup products to stay healthy and beautiful.

The cosmetics industry comes back with their own science. And they say, oh, just a little bit of a cancer causing chemical...
