VLog: Frustrated by Lip Gloss

Tracy Lydiatt – The Green Families Guru:  VLOG: Frustrated with Lip Gloss

There was actually a warning on the
back of this product about carmine which is a food additive that is
believed to be linked to hyperactivity and asthma. In addition, there
were two kinds of parabens in the product which I do my best to avoid. 
Parabens are preservatives that keep fungus and bacteria at bay in a
wide variety of cosmetics and hygiene products. The Environmental
Working Group points out that research on rats has shown both chemical
families [phthalates and parabens] to be carcinogens. A 2004 study
published in the journal Reproductive Technology linked phthalates with
reproductive anomalies, and a study published that same year in the
Journal of Applied Toxicology detected parabens in breast cancer tissue
(Source Environmental Working Group Article: Beauty and the Beasts,
April 2007).
