Cancer Causing Chems in our Beauty Products

I was shocked watching a local stations investigation into the cosmetics industries use of harmful ingredients in our cosmetics and other personal care products. To make matters worse, they know these are harmful because in other countries they aren't aloud to use the ingredients. How rotten. Is our health worth so little? The reporter used a database created to help women check their products for safety. The website is: http://cosmeticsdatabase.com/index.php There is also a petition to sign demanding that more guidelines be in place for our safety. I think I'll be signing that baby. I mean to raise your risk of cancer when applying sun screen... come on.
Now... what to do about the impending white roots on my scalp, since my hair color rated a 7! on the hazard scale which is high.
I just thought you ladies might want to know.

Thanks! I'll chek that out because I have such very light skin that I wear sun screen every day.

Thanks for the heads up!! I'll check it out too. After you're done with this, read "Real Food"... you'd be surprised what the FDA says and what the truth is about the food we eat!
