Did you know that 80% of the ingredients in our products (makeup, skincare, etc.) are absorbed into our bodies and then into our bloodstreams?
Therefore, those ingredients should not be toxic, because when they are, they will hurt your reproductive system, and disrupt so much more!
-For example, here are just a few toxic ingredients in the maybelline mascara you do NOT want anywhere near your eyes:
❌Ethyl paraben – A chemical used to preserve the product formula as well as a fragrance ingredient. It creates immunotoxicity and is an endocrine disruptor, not to mention causes allergy!
❌Methylparaben- Is a preservative; it mimics estrogen and can act as a potential hormone endocrine system disruptor. It may cause healthy cells to grow and survive just as cancer cells and therefore interfere with the effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs. Some studies of breast tumors even show a buildup of methylparabens in the breast tissue!
❌Black 2- Pigment, classified as group 2B carcinogen due to experimental evidence on animals. It’s Impact is possibly organ system toxicity!
Why use these products when there is literally no benefit but the looks you get from it? And even then, there is other options to use to get the same looks but without all of this toxics, and no animal testing.
Here is a list of non-toxic beauty brands to buy your mascara from.
