Are your cosmetics harming your health?

I’ve been doing a series of health talks on how to detoxify your body and one of the facts that is most eye-opening to people is the fact that cosmetics contains harmful chemicals.

It is really great if your cosmetics company does not test on animals, is giving back to the environment or supporting a good cause every time you purchase their product.

However, despite their good deeds, the ingredients they are using may be harming your health.

Have you heard of the Environmental Working Group’sDirty Dozen‘ list of foods which contain the highest amount of pesticide residue?

Well, David Suzuki has come out with the ‘Dirty Dozen in Cosmetics‘.
