Make Informed Decisions when Purchasing Beauty Products

Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit". We need to get into a habit of making good decisions about the products we use to care for our bodies. A group of women at the University of Massachusetts Amherst started a program called Protect Our Breasts in an effort to encourage women to steer away from toxin exposure from everyday products and choices. The mission of POB is to reduce rates of breast cancer and other diseases linked to toxin exposure through educating consumers.

We can have a better chance at excellent health if we make informed choices. We are on the right start when we look to purchase Certified Organic skin care products and seek out products that do not include chemical hormone disruptors like tricolsan.

We can also make good choices by being mindful of the packaging out products are in as the packaging can be harmful. Look for products in packaging that does not leach potential carcinogens like BPA. Seek out products in packages that use PET/PETE and HDPE, so-called “good plastics.”

Make healthy choices a routine and encourage others to do so as well. It could save lives!

If you have questions about any body care ingredient, search The Endocrine Disruptor Exchange, a comprehensive, nonprofit site that disseminates scientific evidence about these toxins.
