What's In Your Skin Care and Personal Care Products?

A new year a new look and outlook, perhaps? When it comes to your beauty regimen, you have a lot of choices. Now more than ever, consumers are savvy when it comes to shopping for personal care products. All natural, non toxic beauty and personal care products are in.

Women want to look good but underneath all that make-up, often lies harmful and toxic beauty ingredients, that women aren't aware of. Fortunately, today's beauty market is filled with make up options.

Why should you choose or even care about using non-toxic products?

Why not when you can easily find high quality eco conscious products without all those eecky chemicals. Some of the products that are hidden in your skin care, make up, and common personal care products may contain some or all of these ingredients ... even the ones that claim to be "natural"!

Ingredients to avoid

• Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
• Petrolatum
• Propylene Glycol
• Parabens
• Synthetic Colors

This is just a partial list of potentially harmful ingredients.
