The introduction of the Savvy Minerals by Young Living makeup line marks a pivotal point in the beauty industry.
Women are demanding better products, not just for their families and homes but for themselves too! We are educating ourselves and we are raising our expectations in the products we use.
The average woman is exposed to 500 harsh chemicals a day and 80 of those exposures happen before breakfast. Did you know our skin absorbs 60-70% of what we apply topically to it? That's eye-opening and a bit frightening you guys! This exposure comes from numerous items and beauty products and makeup are most definitely included. Just because it's sold on the shelf DOES NOT make it safe.
Did you know the FDA doesn't approve the ingredients in our cosmetics? They only take action against them after they've been found to be harmful, adulterated or misbranded.
The U.S. based non-profit environmental advocacy group Environmental Defense tested 49 different cosmetic items including foundations, concealers, powders, blushes, eye liners, eye shadows, mascaras, lipstick and lip glosses and found a great deal of heavy metal contamination in nearly all of them: lead, arsenic, beryllium, thallium, and cadmium. Personally, I don't want any of that in my cosmetics, and definitely not on my skin or in my body. And the good news is now I don't have to!
