I posted this to my personal Instagram a few months ago. But I wanted to bring it up again for the purpose of this blog!
Gonna preach for a minute 👋 Over the past two years I have been slowly ditching and replacing all of my beauty, personal hygiene, and household products with safer, organic, and non-toxic alternatives. It is scary how many chemicals and dangerous toxins companies put into these products just to make them cheaper and hope the consumer doesn't know what the effect is to their health. Just think, your skin is your largest organ and absorbs everything you put on it. In Europe, over 1,300 ingredients used in cosmetics have been banned by the European Union, while in the United States, the Food & Drug Administration has banned just 10 ingredients to date. I am happy to be part of the #CleanBeautyRevolution by @aunaturalelife and have signed the petition to get Congress moving and help us have higher standards for cosmetics. I encourage you to get informed and pay more attention to what you're putting on and in your body. It's worth it. Thank you @organicbunny for introducing me to this campaign! #naturalbeauty #safercosmetics #organicbeauty #veganbeauty #crueltyfreebeauty #nontoxicbeauty #greenbeauty #naturalskincare #ecobeauty
This is going to be a huge focus for this blog. I really want people to be aware of what ingredients are in their cosmetics and why the majority of generic cosmetics are toxic. 😲
Take a look at this video by Au Naturale Cosmetics:
I did follow-up post about what ingredients to avoid in your products. Here are a few resources if you care to read more:
I hope you take a few minutes to sign the petition. Why is it fair that Europe bans thousands of ingredients, and there are only 10 ingredients banned here in the US? We deserve to know what’s in our products and be able to trust that what we’re putting in and on our bodies is safe. 💅
Join me in the #CleanBeautyRevolution (btw the shirts are super comfortable and cute!)
