As we become more health-conscious in our everyday lives, swapping regular produce for organic and yoga for vegging out on the couch, it’s a great time to start looking critically at our makeup collection. Do you really know what you’re putting on your face every day? Isn’t all makeup non-toxic? You might be surprised to find out that you’re using some shady shades—especially because cosmetic companies are not required by law to list all of their ingredients.
Your skin is your biggest organ, so keep it healthy and happy by using non-toxic makeup products in Carmel, CA. Our longtime client Rebecca Touché loves our selection of makeup and skincare, recently telling us that she has yet to find a similar level of selection and service in the Carmel area. Here are some of the best reasons to use non-toxic makeup:
- There’s a product for every budget: You might think that non-toxic makeup means that it’ll be more expensive, but that’s actually not true: there are plenty of lines that are comparable to what you might pay at a drugstore. Who can put a price on health, anyway?
- You’d be surprised at what’s lurking in your makeup bag: Coal tar, asbestos, formaldehyde and carcinogens are just some of the things lurking in your mascara, nail polish, blush and even moisturizers. Would you voluntarily smear those chemicals on your skin? Of course not—but you might be if you’re continuing to use most major brands.
- Parabens can disrupt the endocrine system: So many products contain parabens, which have been linked to a disruption of the endocrine system. Now think about when you started wearing makeup—for most of us, that happened during puberty and early adolescence. That’s right about the time that the endocrine system kicks into high gear. Is it possible that you’ve been risking your health this entire time?
- There are no real standards in the cosmetic industry: Surprisingly, most makeup brands use very similar formulas across the board, and as we noted earlier, there are no standards for requiring companies to list the ingredients in their products. That means that the coal tar in your mascara can be called “carbon black,” and many of us are none the wiser. Even sunscreens can contain carcinogens.
It’s impossible to account for every possibility when it comes to protecting your health, but using non-toxic makeup in Carmel, CA is a simple and easy switch that could give great results. Stop by TOUCHÉ today to pick up safe products for your skin.
