It has been long time,I heard about this safe cosmetics issue.I even watched it on oprah show,but the question is:Can we get all of our cosmetics 100% free from harmfull chemical agents?..
Who can guarantee that?..
I have watched on one of Oprah Shows about some harmfull chemical agents which shouldn't be in our cosmetics ingredients,which are:Parabens(ethyl,methyl,propyl,all parabens family),Phthalates,Aluminium,Coaltar,Sodium Laureth Sulfate(SLS),Germall,Formaldehyde,and some other agents which I forgot to write it on my note.
Some said that a good lipbalm shouldn't contain petroleum/petrolatum,nor parabens.Some said that our soap shouldn't contain SLS. But hey..why there're like 80% of cosmetics on the market contain those harmfull chemical agents? Let's start it with your cosmetics,take a look at the ingredients.You'll easily find those harmfull chemical agents.For complete isues,click this link:

Harmfull maybe isn't a proper word for that,since it's still on scientist debate. And,it's not like you use it today,then tomorrow you're on your death clock.It's an ongoing process,like you're"saving"toxic agents in your body.And this kinda freak me out a'lil bit.
So,here I am.Feeling powerless.I can't get all of my cosmetics 100% free from those chemical agents,like this: My lipstick is free from those agents,my powder too,but not with my BB cream,not with my shampoo,not with my mascara,not with my soap,not with my toothpaste,etc. Oh..why don't the producers make it safe for us to use it without worries?
I certainly hope that someday we all can walk through cosmetics counter and grab our cosmetics without having to look at the ingredients first(because it's 100% safe already)..Someday..who knows?:)
