AKA regularly evaluates cosmetics and skincare products because we know that it’s not just what we eat / drink, but what we put on our skin and in our air that affects our health. I rely on tools like the Environmental Working Group’s “Skin Deep” database and my friend, eco-makeup artist guru, Christy Coleman www.christycoleman.com or what’s okay and NOT for us and our environment…oh yeah, and how to get camera-ready or out-on-the-town ready with win-win-win looks.

Watch and share The Story of Cosmetics and tell Congress it’s time for SAFE cosmetics!

What are all those chemicals in your shampoo? your lipstick? your aftershave? And what do they have to do with asthma, breast cancer and learning disabilities?

Learn, share and help change this toxic mess: Watch The Story of Cosmetics, a film exposing the ugly truth about personal care products – brought to you by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff Project and Free Range Studios.

Let’s make a huge splash with this new video: if we all share it with our friends and community, we can reach millions of people and really inspire change!

This video is just in time to build momentum for groundbreaking safe cosmetics legislation – the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010! For the first time in 70 years, we have a real chance to pass a bill that would eliminate chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health problems from the products women, men and children put on their bodies every day.

We need all hands on deck: Urge your elected officials to co-sponsor common-sense safe cosmetics legislation that ensures everyone has access to safe products!

Thanks for watching and sharing The Story of Cosmetics and for asking Congress to get behind safe cosmetics legislation. Together, we’re going to make sure cosmetics are safe for everyone.
