…It’s a known fact. We absorb 80% of what we put on our skin. Here is another fact: the average woman uses 12 cosmetic products a day. Many of those products are reapplied throughout the day, creating and building quite a daily dose of a chemical cocktail. We ingest an average of 4 pounds of lipstick in a lifetime! Over the years, this can take a toll on your health and environment.

Trust me, we don’t want to send anyone into a panic over a simple lipstick application. It is only lipstick. What you can do is start making a difference now. W3LL PEOPLE offers these simple solutions:

  1. As you run out of your current conventional cosmetic, replace it with toxin free choices
  2. Learn to read labels. If the first 5 ingredients are not natural, or pronounceable, the chances of the product being skin safe are slim.
  3. Say no to artificial fragrance. Artificial fragrances, which frequently contain phthalates, can also trigger allergic reactions and other health problems.
  4. Avoid petrochemicals. A nonrenewable and environmentally unfriendly resource, petroleum barely belongs in your car, let alone on your skin. Identify it on labels as petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin.
  5. Say no to parabens. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers.
  6. Choose recyclable packaging. You are doing our planet a big favor here.

W3LL PEOPLE is happy to help green you make up bag and the environment with our toxin free, eco-beauty choices. Our goodness is a click, call or visit away :)
