When was the last time you actually looked at the ingredients present in your makeup? Most people take for granted the chemicals and ingredients that go into their every day makeup and skin care routines. With a myriad of chemicals in each bottle, this can be a risky choice for a couple of reasons.
The first reason that you should really look at ingredients is environmental. There are many different phrases that marketing teams can use to suggest that they're environmentally friendly. Make sure that you look at the different stickers that appear on the products. If there is a small bunny head, that means that the brand is cruelty-free and vegan. If this sticker is on the product, then it wasn't tested on animals and does not contain any animal ingredients. If the sticker is a whole bunny, that means that the brand is cruelty-free, but not necessarily vegan.
The second reason that you should care about what goes into your makeup is in regards to your health. Most of the products that you use on your skin goes deeper. When risky chemicals are in your products they go deeper than just your skin. The truth of the matter about these chemicals, is that most scientists don't actually know what they do. The FDA hasn't even been as strict about the safety of makeup and skincare products as it probably should.
