Action Alerts - Safe Cosmetics Maybe some of you dont care or dont bother to look to see what in your makeup etc, and maybe its time we all did ... for years I never looked to see ingredients and anyway I wouldnt have known what the long fancy jargon meant... but over the past fifteen years Ive been reading a lot about whats in some of the stuff we put on our face and bodies and perhaps we should be making a stand to stop all this toxic rubbish being bought from unscrupulous companies who must know the dangers... please take a look.. i hope this is ok to put on here..

Yes, I hate all the unnecessary crap that they put into cosmetics and toiletries. I mean, do we really need makeup to be so perfumed, for a start?

Also, I'm really annoyed with The Body Shop. I had been using their Facial Scrub for a while, only to find out that it had those little plastic microbeads in them, which are bad for the marine environment. I thought The Body Shop were all for saving the environment!

I stopped using it anyway, and started using Simple Facial Scrub, which uses the more natural 'rice granules'. And I think The Body Shop have now stopped making their scrub with the plastic microbeads. And it looks like the UK Government want to ban the use of them, by the end of this year:

But why were they putting bits of plastic into things in the first place?! They were even using them in some toothpastes. I don't want to be swallowing bits of plastic, when I clean my teeth!

Body shop is such a scam. I think they sold out during an acquisition maybe 15-20 years ago. Lots of green-washing.
