THE STORY:

When you shop, you vote. We can change our marketplace to reflect the needs of healthy humans by making informed and conscious choices. Next time you purchase personal care products for you or your family, you have the opportunity to support a healthy economy with your dollars. Please do that. This Web site will help: http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/

That's all :)

The video from The Story of Stuff will give you a good start if this is new information to you. The gist is that the cosmetic industry currently regulates itself and isn't concerned about toxic chemicals in your personal care products. Science supports the industry's very true argument that highly toxic chemicals in the small amounts they use won't have immediately apparent disastrous effects. The rebuttal to that claim is that toxins have a cumulative effect and we're only just starting to see what happens to our bodies in an industrialized world where we eat, inhale, and absorb highly toxic chemicals all the time, every day.

Capitalism works better than regulation, the trick is having a consumer base that recognizes its power and responsibility to shape the use our species makes of natural resources. Next time you purchase...anything...think about what you're supporting with your dollars. Big-picture smart choices are available now, and they cost the same.
