A space to embrace living simply and joyfully, the art of re-purposing, healthy seasonal recipes, embrace nutrition, and to share adventures in gardening, sewing projects and home canning/preserving. A home to celebrate inspiration, creativity, and community.
It seems this has been a busy couple of weeks for new reports emerging about toxins in common cosmetics.
What I want to know is who, in the development of beauty products, suggests this? How does one look at a product that will go on a human being and think that adding known carcinogens- such as lead or formaldehyde- is a good idea??
Does that developer then use the product herself? Or allow her mother, sister or
daughter to use it?
And how have we, as a culture and society, allowed this blind consumption? Why don't demand transparency, information and educationin the products that we will consume? Think about it.
