Look how pretty the colors are!
We third-party test each batch of color cosmetics for heavy metals and often have zero or “no detect” levels. Our allowable limits are below even the most health-protective standards in the world.
Finally I can use a color shadow without worrying about heavy metals. This was something I knew I should do something about a long time ago, but didn’t exactly know where to buy and who to trust. I was dealing with autoimmune, thyroid / adrenal issues at the time, I saw MANY doctors and was going regularly for blood work. I was tested for mercury levels using hair mineral analysis and blood. And my levels were high! This was scary and I wanted to do everything I could to remove the “sources” and take all the supplements, and foods needed to help remove it from my body. Let’s just say I got the professional help I needed for my life style and diet needs. But when it came to knowing what was in my personal care products and my makeup I had no clue what I was dealing with.
So I did what most concerned customers did…. I was in denial for a while, I continued to use my old stuff for a bit then one day it was like a light bulb went off. I started to ask questions, I started to listen to pod casts about safer skin care, and I started to learn that there is a HUGE lack of regulation within the beauty industry as a whole.
Not only was I broke because of my life style changes and medical bills, I was stuck using my old stuff for far to long because I didn’t know what to buy. Sometimes I would get an expensive product at the health food store or market, that said all natural, organic and pareben free. But I stopped doing that because I found they didn’t all work that well.
I was choosing safety over performance and it was getting expensive.
I thought… ” I don’t wear a lot of makeup anyways so maybe I will just continue to use the stuff I have how harmful can it be really”
It turns out that there are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry.
Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including, but not limited to, asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise, due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home.
