Most teen girls love makeup because it helps them feel better about how they look. Should you make sure your daughter has chemical free makeup? Absolutely!
Why is Chemical Free Makeup Important?
In the United States, although food products now all have labels, beauty and cleaning products require no labels at all. As a result, any type of chemical, fragrance, or toxin can be put into personal care products without telling the consumer.
Unregulated products include:
- Hair products
- Body Sprays, etc.
These products continue to go completely unregulated. Therefore, it’s so important for consumers to be aware of what is in their products!
Cosmetics and cheap makeup might make you look good but often contain hormone and endocrine disrupters. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want anything messing with my daughters’ hormones!
People think that a little bit of chemicals in a product won’t hurt them. But if you add a little bit of chemicals to 20 different products that you use every day, the toxic load really adds up.
Furthermore, they say that the average woman applies over 300 chemicals a day to her body just through soaps, makeup, shampoo and hair products. Eighty of these products are applied before breakfast!
