I talk a lot about products and ingredients. It is hard to know what to trust in the United States. I did a post on a short list from another trusted website, but wanted to share a few more organizations that are helping change the beauty and cosmetic industries.
The Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. EWG has published a restricted short list to help consumers make better decisions. I love this organization and website. EWG’s mission is to educate consumers, empower people to make smart decisions, and to change the market.
EWG also has a great app for your iPhone and android for you to use on the go when looking at products and understanding the ingredients.
Check out the website to do more research: www.ewg.org
Safe Cosmetics Campaign works to protect the health of consumers and educates millions on toxic ingredients.
