How green are your cosmetics?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm relatively new to buying "green" make-up, so I was trying to figure out how to evaluate some of the products I currently own.  I went back into the forum archives and found this great site that Stins recommended called Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database.

 

There, you can enter the brand or specific name of any product and find out, quantitatively, just how eco-friendly it is -- or isn't.  I was definitely surprised by the horrendous ratings of some of the "organic" make-up I own.

 

Just in case there are any relative newbies like me, I thought I'd repost this link in a specific thread to make it easier to find...enjoy!

I wrote a list of what I belive to be fakers and non-fakers for toxic free companies.

I want to point out that the database covers a lot more than cosmetics, despite the name- you can find facial cleansers, deodorants, sunscreens, etc in there!
