Why are there still toxic ingredients in beauty products?
Dear Kosterina Family,
Each week we compile our favorite wellness content from around the web. This week, we got on the topic of clean beauty products.
If you've got 44 minutes of commuting or downtime this week, check out the Beauty Closet podcast by Goop. There is an episode called "Why are there still toxic ingredients in beauty products?" that I found incredibly informative. It features the VP of Healthy Living Science at Environmental Working Group (EWG).
EWG is an independent organization that provides consumers guidance on what products and ingredients to use and which to avoid. The EWG Skin Deep Database ranks tens of thousands of cosmetic and personal care products on a scale from 1 to 10 from Low Hazard to High Hazard. I'd recommend running a quick search on anything that you're using regularly! #liveclean
