The Story of Cosmetics | Annie Leonard Video

How toxic is your bathroom? Watch this short but informative video and find out.

Learn about how major loopholes in U.S. federal law allow the $50 billion beauty industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no monitoring of health effects and inadequate labeling requirements—making cosmetics among the least-regulated consumer products on the market. Think twice before putting on that lipstick, you might be putting on lead!

If you ever find yourself with a spare 20 minutes or so please watch Annie's video entitled THE STORY OF STUFF. It will forever change your shopping habits.

Rosemary - That cosmetics video is a good clear eye-opener. Going to show it to my teenage daughter. Thanks!
