Skin Deep: Are your cosmetics toxic?

I recently stumbled across a GREAT resource - and oddly enough Global Television was airing a segment on them the very next night!

"Skin Deep" is part of the Environmental Working Group's Cosmetic Safety Database. The short of it? - You can take a look at the toxic content of the skin cream you apply, the toothpaste you brush with, or *gasp* the hairdye you use.

If you can't find the product you're looking for in their extensive list of cosmetics, you can enter it in yourself and the website immediately generates you a report - - which you can save by creating a free profile!

For Example: Did you know that 'Colgate Flouride Toothpaste Regular' is rated as less toxic than its popular counterpart 'Colgate Total Toothpaste'??

Visit: Skin Deep and give it a try!

In good health,

Dr. Stacey Welton, ND
