Have you ever checked out the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database? It gives your cosmetics and skin care products a rating from 1-10 based on toxicity. It's a little scary! It turns out that all of my shampoos, conditioners, and shower washes contain harmful toxic chemicals--some cancerous! Yikes!
"Skin Deep pairs ingredients in more than 42,000 products against 50 definitive toxicity and regulatory databases, making it the largest integrated data resource of its kind. Why did a small nonprofit take on such a big project? Because the FDA doesn't require companies to test their own products for safety."
My daily shower wash (a 7 out of 10 is baaad!)
So, maybe I'll use this one instead (a rating of 5 is only a moderate hazard!)
Lil Petunia's Johnson &Johnson's Baby wash gets a 4 which is why I still buy it for her even though she's not a baby anymore! (She still likes it, anyway!)
My daily facial cleanser gets a 4--whew!
This Frederic Fekkai shampoo is rated a 9. Ouch.
