The Story of Cosmetics

Happy Friday!  Thought I'd share this interesting video on cosmetics.  Check out the website here.

very interresting.

It is so difficult to make good choices, Good for your body, good for the environment and good for the people producing the product.

What are your thoughts on the video?

Hi Char,

I like that the video calls out corporations and governments for their lack of laws regarding chemicals in cosmetics. I do think any chemical that has been linked to cancer, etc. should be banned, and that would make choices for us much easier! On the other hand, I also think it's up to the consumer to take responsibility for what we use on ourselves and our children. About a year ago I looked through all our products, threw out the ones with harmful or possibly harmful ingredients, and started purchasing different products, and it really wasn't hard to find information and natural products. I do like the Story of Stuff project though - I've been following it for about a year and they've done a great job of educating & causing change.
