skin deep

Concerned about what exactly is in those products you are slathering on your face, hair, and body? If not, maybe you should be. Did you know that cosmetic and personal care companies are allowed to use almost any ingredient they wish in their products, and that the U.S. government doesn’t review their safety before they’re sold?

Thanks to Environmental Working Group, there is a website called “Skin Deep”  that has done most of the research for you! Just type in your favorite lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc., to find out just how safe it really is for you or your children.
