What is your favorite makeup product? Mascara? Lipstick? Maybe you really like blush. Have you ever thought to pay attention to the ingredients in your favorite makeup? Or have you ever considered that your makeup may contain chemicals that are actually more harmful to your skin and body than they are helpful?
In the US, there are no laws requiring personal care products to be labeled for all ingredients. The last time anyone thought to change the policies regarding chemicals and labeling of personal care products for the US was in the 70s. At this point, there are only 11 chemicals banned in the US for personal care products. But in Europe? There are over 1,328 chemicals not allowed in makeup, shampoos, lotions, and more. Seems like we’re getting the shaft, don’t you think?
So what can you do to protect yourself? You can start to pay attention and use resources to avoid known harmful chemicals. This is what our next Mamavation TV show is all about.

Our Guest This Week

Sarah suffered skin problems from the very early age of 11, and like so many others used everything from OTC products to dermatologist-prescribed solutions.

With over ten years experience in research and development to provide real skin solutions, it is the guarantee of RawSkinCeuticals, maker of Raw Skin Solutions and Treatments, to provide tested and naturally balanced products for its customers. All of RawSkinCeutical’s products are 100% chemical and gluten free. You can visit RawSkinCeuticals on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
