Environmental Working Group – Skin Deep Database
Many people do not realize the chemical assault we are often facing from one of the most surprising areas of our daily life—our bathrooms and personal hygiene regimens! Most cosmetics and ‘cosmeceutical’ ingredients do not undergo rigorous testing for safety and toxicity in human trials and thus millions of people everyday are often unknowingly exposing themselves to toxins in their lipsticks, makeup, shampoos, antiperspirants, hair dyes, lotions, and so on. Over time, these noxious compounds can build up in the body, often contributing to or even triggering potential illnesses and conditions.
The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit dedicated to informing and protecting consumer’s from such hazards by evaluating common marketplace cosmetics and goods and suggesting ‘cleaner’ options for you to consider for your own, family or friends’ use.
