Savvy: the ability to make good judgement and use practical knowledge.
Lets talk a little about makeup. BHA and BHT...you have heard of them, I'm sure, but what are they? How do they affect our bodies? Well, they are basically preservatives. Preservatives that disrupt hormones by mimicking estrogen, synthetically. Oh, great, just what we need another synthetic estrogen in a world when women are getting hormonal cancers at a rate as never seen before! These chemical burdens literally cannot be processed by our bodies. Our body has no idea what to do with them. We know that anything that goes on our face is going into our brains. Our skin is our largest organ, like a giant sponge that soaks up whatever we put on it and goes straight into our blood stream, our organs, and our brain. BHA and BHT are used in resins, wood products, plastics, permanent press fabrics, toilet bowl cleaners....they do not belong on our face. 21 million tons a year are produced and used in products. They are known carcinogens.
In the beauty industry, less than 20% of chemicals are tested and are heavy laden in our cosmetics. Talc, bismuth, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, barium, chromium, selenium, lead....poison to our blood. An example of bismuth for you? Bismuth is a metal mineral added to cosmetics for that "shine and glow". It is a cheap filler that helps makeup last longer. Have you ever tried a mineral makeup and had it irritate your skin? Yep...that's the Bismuth. In cosmetics, they are nano particles, much more dangerous to the body than other forms of bismuth. Being smaller, they go into the pores and cells and can cause kidney damage.
Did you know the brighter the lipstick and the longer the wear means more toxins in the formula? It is almost impossible to find that true red color without the use of lead in lipstick.
Oh, but it says herbal, natural, and organic? Cosmetic labels in the United States have NO legal definition. What?!! That's right! Know your ingredients. Be educated and responsible for your own health.
There is good news, I promise you! You, or your loved ones, don't have to compromise beauty for health anymore!
