Did you know that we absorb up to 60 percent of what we put on our skin?
Have you read the ingredients in that mascara or eye shadow you purchased from the department store? Many of the ingredients in makeup we purchase at department or drug stores have been linked to cancer. There are enough things out there to worry about without worrying about the ingredients in your makeup!
So, what ingredients are potentially dangerous? There are 12 toxic ingredients found in many cosmetics that I would avoid. These ingredients are linked to skin allergies, cancer, infertility, birth defects, reproductive problems, and learning disabilities.
Here they are:
DMDM Hydantoin & Urea (Imidazolidinyl)
FD&C Color and Pigments
Parabens (Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl, Propyl)
PEG (Polyethylene glycol)
Propylene Glycol PG & Butylene Glycol
So what sets Aveda apart?
Aveda has an ingredient philosophy: what you put on your body should be as healthy and natural as what you put into it. ALL Aveda ingredients are derived from plants rather than petroleum or animal by products. As one of the original mineral makeup brands, Aveda has always believed that the ingredients in their makeup should be safe and healthy for your skin. Rest assured you will not find any of these toxic ingredients in Aveda makeup and/or hair care products. If you have any questions about the Aveda makeup feel free to schedule a 30 minute makeup application and we would be more than happy to find a healthy and beautiful alternative to your current products!
