We’re not talking about face paint to make you look like the Incredible Hulk! We’re talking about eco-friendly cosmetics.
The UK cosmetics industry is worth over £6.5 billion. Most of us ladies all have our daily beauty routine, on average using around 12 products per day, probably even more than that if we’re getting ready for a night out on the town. What we don’t realise is that shockingly, some of these products can contain harmful chemicals that may be unsafe and make us unwell.
There are over 75,000 registered industrial chemicals and the top 10 American cosmetic companies use over 10,000 of these chemicals. Some of these chemicals can cause side effects like dermatitis or worse still, lead to fatal diseases such as cancer. The same chemicals are often used in household and industrial products.
Shocked? We were. Not to worry though, there are so many green cosmetic products to choose from these days, you won’t have trouble finding something you like at a very good price.
We particularly liked products from Lush – https://www.lush.co.uk/ they all look and smell absolutely gorgeous which means you’ll be looking and smelling gorgeous too 😉
Organic Surge advise that their products are 100% free of harsh chemicals you can find them here – http://www.organicsurge.com/ their prices are pretty pocket friendly too.
A little bit more on the higher end of the price scale is Neal’s Yard, quality organic products. Their Rejuvenating Frankincense Facial Oil has just been voted Beauty Insider’s choice Winner, Cosmetic Executive Women UK. You can find this and lots of other goodies here http://www.nealsyardremedies.com/
