Wellness Wednesday

Do you know what's in your cosmetics?  Most likely some very toxic ingredients.  The Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep database contains over 69,000 products that are analyzed based on health concerns such as cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity, allergies and immunotoxicity, and other potential hazards.  With the new year approaching, now might be a good time to rethink products you purchase and look for healthy alternatives.

Yeah... once I found out about that site I ended up throwing away 1/2 my stuff. The thing is that when I started looking at the 0's and 1's, I had no clue where to buy these products.

Scary stuff.

Unfortunately, it is hard to find some of the 0's and 1's, especially in areas similar to where I live. Thank goodness for the internet! This year I'm recommitting to cleaner living. :)
