10 Dirty Beauty Surprises

Beauty SurprisesDo these products look familiar?

They sure do to me!  And I bet they do to you too!  At some stage I’ve had each of these in my daily routine, even until very recently – thinking I was choosing the best, safest, least toxic products.  Some I even chose, in good faith, in the name of chemical free, safe, non-toxic, and even healthy… Boy, was I wrong!

You might be surprised to know that every single one of the above products rate either 9/10 or 10/10 for DIRTY!  According to the Think Dirty app (FREE in the app store) these products rate the highest in in 1) Carcinogenicity, 2) Developmental & Reproductive Toxicity, and 3) Allergenicity & Immunotoxicity.  Scary huh?

Worse, have a look at the labels.  You’ll see all sorts of healthy, safe, ‘good for you’ claims.  This is why we must look at labels and educate ourselves on what’s inside our every day products, especially if we value our long term health, and the health of our families.

What to do?  

At the very least download the Think Dirty app, and the others mentioned in my previous post on 5 Apps to Help you Live Clean, and start reading labels.  Most of the apps are free so they’re costing you big fat nothing.  What’s better than that?

I hope you found this info helpful!
