This is a great article from The New York Times on the safety of cosmetics. This is one example of how we CAN control our toxic load by buying products that are free of dangerous chemicals. After a recent blood test, I began investigating some of the products I had been using previously. I considered them to be “cleaner” than your average drugstore items but a test revealed many of these dangerous chemicals were lingering in my body and activating an immune response. So I researched further and cleaned up my products even more. (I’m going on 3 months nail polish free!) If you’re looking for resources to cleaner products and cosmetics I list several online stores here in the Skin and Body section, that you can trust.

Thousands of chemicals, in billions of dollars worth of products, are being governed by regulations that haven’t been updated in decades. The American cosmetics industry is a $70 billion-a-year behemoth. The Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors has an annual budget of just $8 million and 27 staff members. The laws governing the office’s authority run just two pages long and have not been updated since 1938, when they were first enacted. Such meager tools leave federal officials nearly powerless to regulate the makeup, lotions, toothpastes, deodorants and other elixirs that often are applied to the most intimate parts of the human body.
