I learned about it when I interviewed Stacy Malkan, author of Not Just A Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry. Author Interview: Stacy Malkan: Book Title: Not Just A Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of The Beauty Industry
Stacy is co-founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition of health and environmental groups working to eliminate hazardous chemicals from personal care products.
I signed the petition to congress for safe cosmetics, will you?
I've since been on a journey to discover if the personal care products I'm using myself are healthy or harmful to my skin and the environment. It was pretty clear after searching my products on the www.cosmeticdatabase.org website that I needed to do a little (BIG) makeover on my makeup/skincare items!
My challenging climb to a healthier skincare route came about with lots of help from Stacy Malkan, author of Just Not A Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry (www.NotJustaPrettyFace.org), Robyn Bloom, owner of Purely Cosmetics (www.purelycosmetics.com) and Coral Rose, Founder of Eco-Innovations (www.eco-textiles.com).
Check out my Q&A's with each of them and feel free to comment!
