Very soon, we will be starting a campaign for safer skincare and cosmetics in Singapore. It’s about time somebody said something.
It is very unfortunate that most skincare and cosmetic companies, especially big brand names, are using toxic ingredients in their products. Some can cause cancer, while others affect the brain and reproductive organs. What’s worse is that consumers are not in the know, and believe that pharmacies would have done all the legwork for them already.
Need proof? Visit Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep website and key in your famous brand beauty product to see for yourself.
The Story of Cosmetics was recently released, so do take some time to watch it if you haven’t already. In 8 minutes you will find out why it is important to use skincare and cosmetics that feature natural or organic ingredients.
If you haven’t already seen the documentary, Chemerical, we hope to do a repeat screening soon. Watch this space!
