Beauty should be good for you
There is no concealing the latest trend in the cosmetics industry, clean beauty but what does that mean? The beauty industry is built on secrets. It is basically a self governed industry. Companies can make claims on their products saying they are natural or safe when they may or may not actually be. There is no regulation on what these words mean. Everyone deserves the right to know what they are putting on their skin and in their bodies. The European Union currently bans over 1400 potentially harmful chemicals from their beauty products, the United States currently bans 30. We are far behind the times and its time to do something about that. Come find out what this lack of regulation means for you and your loved ones, what ingredients to avoid, how to shop safer, and what is being done to increase the regulation of this billion dollar industry and the transparency of potentially harmful chemicals hidden within ingredient labels.

This is not just a women's issue it is a health issue. Beauty should be good for you and you have a right to know what is in the products that you put on your largest organ everyday.
