Not too long ago I received an email asking me if I wanted to write a post regarding makeup safety. Apparently lots of makeup and cosmetic products contain ingredients that are harmful to our bodies. I was very unaware of this which is why I decided to share this information with you guys. I’m not receiving any money for this, I’m purely sharing it because I was so unaware of this topic and I can only imagine some of you being unaware too. So, if you’re interested in finding out which ingredients that are found in cosmetics are dangerous and how to cut them out of your life, make sure you continue reading!
The image shown above shows a very clear overview of which ingredients are harmful and why. They also give us some suggestions on how to cut those harmful ingredients out of our routines and out of our lives. I have to say that, even though I think it’s very important and worthy of your time, I personally think it’s quite hard and time consuming to go through your entire collection and check whether those products are safe or not.
Therefore I wanted to share a tip with you guys on how to make sure your collection of dangerous products won’t grow and grow:
Don’t buy anything that contains any of these ingredients!
From now on, whenever you buy anything, quickly check whether or not it contains any of the ingredients mentioned above. If you buy online just cmd+F and write down the ingredient and if the product contains that it will show up. If you prefer shopping in store keep a little list with these dangerous ingredients in your bag and quickly check whether they’re in the product you’re about to buy. If the product does contain any of these ingredients, let it go. If it doesn’t, go for it! It doesn’t take in that much time and this way you’ll at least not add bad products to your collection.

I hope this information was helpful to you in one way or another and let me know what you’re going to do to get rid of products that contain bad ingredients!
