If you missed the introduction to this blog, you’ll want to go back and read part 1 that began yesterday.

Ever look at the ingredients in your makeup? Next time you want to find out what is in the ingredients in your makeup or lotions go to This link is really useful for plugging in the ingredient and it gives information on whether it’s linked to cancer, has any developmental or reproductive toxicity, violations, restrictions and warnings, allergies, contamination concerns, other moderate concerns and lesser concerns. If you don’t know the ingredients you can also look up products by names such as L’Oreal and Avon products. Plus, they give you a breakdown of products so that you can search for products by type such as lip balm or foundation. Once you find what you are looking for it will give you a safety score: 0-2 low hazard, 3-6 moderate hazard, and 7-10 high hazard. For example if you search for L’Oreal you’ll get multiple results with some of the most hazardous scores going to children’s products. Then click on the product and it will give you a run down off all of the ingredients L’Oreal has in their products that are focused on kids. You’ll be surprised by what you find.

Here was a shocking discovery for me. I had been using Burt’s Bees all-natural products. Check out what I found. It scored a 6, which is moderately hazardous and linked to cancer, developmentally and reproductively toxic, plus has a ton of other concerns. Talk about upsetting. I couldn’t believe that a Burt’s Bees product was so harmful, and it’ especially scary as I’m pregnant and have been using it. I don’t want anything on my body that could have even the slightest harmful effects on the baby. See what I mean by “all-natural?” I wanted to make it clear that even the ‘natural’ branding isn’t always safe. You have to be careful when purchasing skin and beauty products. I’ve found several instances where a ‘natural’ product actually had plenty of chemicals; the only thing that was natural was the color or one ingredient, thus allowing the product to use the ‘natural’ terminology.

Please use the link above and really think about where you will draw a line when it comes to makeup. For some of you, a rating of 10 is horrible, for others, a rating of 2 is horrible. Have you ever stopped to think about just how many chemicals you feel are safe to place on your body? Are you okay that the ingredients in your favorite lipstick are a hazardous score of 10 for cancer? Do you care that there are developmental and reproductive links to the moisturizer you wear? How about cancer and organ toxicity in the sunscreen you use on your kids or infant? Where do you draw the line? What do you personally deem as safe?

To be continued tomorrow…
