Choosing Safer, Better, Cosmetics

In recent times I have been paying closer attention to ingredients in cosmetics. I have learned that many of the daily products we use can be harmful to our skin and health over time. Here are some websites I came across that will help you learn more about various skin products we use. I advise to not take everything as "gospel" on these sites. Some of them are known to exaggerate and give false information on some issues. Best to do as much research as possible on a particular ingredient from scientific sources.

The use of some ingredients is controversial. Consumerism takes precedence over healthier options. The cosmetic industry is not highly regulated. It's up to you to take your health in your own hands. Going natural is your best bet in my opinion. Best option.... but not very easy to do.
