avoid toxic chemicals in make-upIf you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, you may also be thinking about ways you can avoid toxic chemicals in make-up, body lotion, soap and other personal care products.

Smart move! Most women (myself included) use at least twelve (12) personal care products every day. (Count ‘em – hand soap, body wash, body lotion, face lotion or moisturizer, toner, foundation and/or concealer, blush, mascara, eyeliner, lipstick, deodorant, tooth paste, mouthwash…).

Plus, we may color our hair, shave our legs, use sun block, and more. Even if we only use a little bit of any of these, together they all add up. Research shows that conventional personal care products may contain as many as 168 chemical ingredients, including those that can harm growing babies.

Take a look at this helpful infographic from the non-profit Healthy Child, Healthy World. It offers lots of useful suggestions on how you can avoid toxic chemicals in make-up and shift to cleaner, greener safer personal care products.
