Let's Take the "Cosmetics Challenge" Again!

August 2, 2015

Hi Everyone, I'm back from a weekend with family!  So, I have switched to a much more natural body care regimen.  I will show you what I am now using and the numbers of chemicals in each product.  I am using Face Naturals and Nubian Heritage products now.  Here is my new "Cosmetics Challenge" in the table below.  I used the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database, www.ewg.org/skindeep/ to evaluate the relative hazards of the new products that I am using.  What is kind of interesting is that Burt's Bees, which has a reputation for being "natural," has a lot of chemicals in it and a fairly high EWG hazard.  Tarte make-up is supposed to be natural, but it has a lot of chemicals and the same EWG hazard of 3 as Almay mascara, which is the drugstore brand.



*EWG Hazard, 0-2=low hazard, 3-6=moderate hazard, 7-10-high hazard


You may notice from my June 12th blog post that I kept the same hair conditioner. Some things just aren't worth the fight. :) Finding things that work on my hair is one of those fights that I'm just not up to right now.  Maybe in the future.

Talk to you later!
