#Safer Beauty

When I was pregnant with my second child, I happened to notice a few of my skincare products said “not safe to use while pregnant.” Wait, what? What does that mean? Through some research I found out some shocking statistics:

• The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.
• There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data — especially those used in the skin care and beauty industry.
• The Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful in the products we put on our bodies every single day. Chemicals that are still allowed: lead (specifically in lipsticks), mercury, formaldheyde, parabens, etc.

    So, how do you know if the products you are using on yourself and family are safe? There is an app you can use! Download the app EWG (Environmental Working Group). You can scan or enter your products. The app will rate your product on a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being most toxic), and break down the specific ingredients.
It’s time for a change!
