Toxin-Free Mineral Makeup: NO talc, bismuth, parabens, phthalates or synthetic fragrance.

Let’s talk about toxins and makeup

Did you know the beauty industry is largely unregulated by our government? Ingredients that are unhealthy for you are likely filling your makeup bag.  Let’s chat about some of the concerning ingredients you want to ditch, and I’ll move on to share about how you can still glow without the dangerous ingredients

Talc:

According the Environmental Working Group, “Talc is a powdered native, hydrous magnesium silicate sometimes containing a small portion of aluminum silicate. Talc can be contaminated with asbestos fibers, posing risks for respiratory toxicity and cancer. Studies by the National Toxicology Panel demonstrated that cosmetic-grade talc free of asbestos is a form of magnesium silicate that also can be toxic and carcinogenic.”

Bismuth:

Bismuth Oxychloride is a naturally occurring mineral used as a makeup colorant to vie a shiny, iridescent effect. It is frequently derived from insects, animal and plant sources.  It is widely used in FD&D and D&C coloring and frequently tested on animas due to carcinogenic concerns.  Source: PETA’s Caring Consumer.

Phthalates:

Too Town “Phthalates are used in cosmetics and personal care products, including perfume, hair spray, soap, shampoo, nail polish, and skin moisturizers. They are used in consumer products such as flexible plastic and vinyl toys, shower curtains, wallpaper, vinyl miniblinds, food packaging, and plastic wrap.”  There are over 18 types of phthalates in BABY products, and while most phthalates are largely untested two pose cited concerns: Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate is”reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen” according to the Fourteenth Report on Carcinogens; while the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says high levels of exposure to di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate may affect the development of the male reproductive system.  Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate may not be frequently found in your make up: it does not have to be labeled!

Synthetic Fragrance:

Basically, you want to avoid synthetic fragrance because 75% of the time it is a phthalate, according the the EWG.  IF YOU ARE PREGNANT this is especially important because baby boys tend to be more at risk for problems associated with phthalates.

Parabens:

Paragons are frequently added to cosmetics to inhibit the growth of bacteria.  However they are xenoestrogens which means they mimic estrogen in the body.  The design of the body is for estrogen to rise and fall appropriately, especially for women.  Additional estrogen, especially and unnatural form is a danger to health.

So let’s talk about how to stay looking fabulous without any of the ingredients we just discussed.  Side note, all of the listed ingredients are VEGAN except for the lipstick because it contains beeswax.
