SheFinds News: Chemicals in your Cosmetics

An article released this month from Consumer Reports warns of harmful chemicals found in many cosmetics called phthalates (pronounced THAL-ates). The concern is that the checmicals “may be linked to developmental and reproductive health risks.” This can be a problem, since phthalates are found in body lotions, hair sprays, perfumes, and deodorants in addition to cosmetics. Some of the major makeup companies have eliminated the chemicals or are in the process of doing so: Essie, OPI, Sally Hansen, Avon, Cover Girl, Estée Lauder, L’Oréal, Max Factor, Orly, and Revlon. However, they warn that not all companies are truthful about their phthalate-free claims.

One good way to avoid chemicals in your cosmetics altoether is to purchase stuff made completely from natural ingredients. There are plenty of eco-friendly companies out there making moisturizers, soaps, makeup, perfume and more without the aid of chemicals or with very few of them Check out our Eco Beauty newsletter to find some of our favorites. And, of course, keep an eye on the blog for great EcoChic finds.
