As much I enjoy sporting animal slobber on my clothes and hay particles in my hair…
… I still enjoy getting gussied up every once and a while.
It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes it just feels good to put on some clothes that aren’t manure-stained, pull my hair out of it’s perpetual messy-bun, and dab on some foundation and eye shadow. (I just have to be careful not to go down to the barn looking like that, since I’m sure it would totally freak out the animals.)
I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job of ridding my house of the most notorious toxins, but I’ve recently become aware that I’ve been totally ignoring a entire portion of my home that is potentially full of chemicals and carcinogens: the make-up drawer…
Nearly 1 in 5 of every cosmetic product sold in the United States contains a substance that generates formaldehyde (1). (If you ever dissected frogs in biology class, then you’re likely already familiar with formaldehyde.)
Formaldehyde is a awesome preservative–both for frogs and cosmetics. The problem? It’s also a known human carcinogen…
If formaldehyde isn’t your thing, then there’s always the option of mercury in your mascara (2), or parabens in your foundation (3). Yikes!
I’m thinking that this naturally-minded homesteader girl might want to start paying better attention to what she rubs on her face… But thankfully, I do have some good news…
