While I was in Cambridge for the Healthy Living Summit I decided to attend a session about natural beauty products from a Whole Foods employee.
At the store they have a beauty section and one of the goals is to have products that don’t have any of the “dirty 30” in them. What might the “dirty 30” be?
**Warning what these products do might disturb you**
I made this graph after finding the list online. Each one of the chemicals have many functions, things they are present in, and health concerns. I just picked one of them. I know during the session I was pretty grossed out and ready to look at all of my beauty products when I got home. Since then though I kind of feel like what I don’t know won’t hurt me. Haha. That is probably a bad thing considering a majority of these are banned in a lot of different countries.. Kinda gross. I urge you to go through your products though and find out if they have any of the above.
Whole Foods also gave us a lot of samples! I haven’t tried any of them yet but I definitely plan to and then maybe that will get my butt moving to switch over and use some of the healthy products. Instead of making it be like a “diet” that I only do for a couple of days maybe I can get some of the beauty supplies into a lifestyle change. Probably not everything but a couple of changes could save my life… Right?! Right!
Questions: Are you going to look through your beauty supplies?
Will you switch any of your old beauty supplies with new ones?
