Almost 500 Different Cosmetic Products Deemed Toxic!

No longer should we be asking, “Rosy Rouge or Plumpy Pink?” Now we should be asking about what kind of toxic materials are we putting on our faces when we… well… put on our faces!

Yesterday, Environmental Graffiti published an article stating that the Environmental Working Group released some revealing research exposing 478 cosmetic products sold in the US contain doses of toxic chemicals which are unsafe! Holy cow!

Those are some staggering facts. Formaldehyde, selenium, hydrogen peroxide and lead acetate were found in large quantities of test samples. Not only is this toxic for our faces, but also just think about what it does to our environment!

You can check out more disturbing facts on the Environmental Working Group’s website.
