What’s On Your Bathroom Counter?

For several years, I’ve carefully read the labels on my personal care products, avoiding things like parabens (preservatives identified as estogenic and linked to breast cancer) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (also used in brake fluid and antifreeze, they are used to enhance the foaming ability of many products. There is great debate over whether they are carcinogens).

Last night, I visited a great web site where you can check out the safety of your own personal care products: www.cosmeticsdatabase.com. Items from shampoos to fragrance are rated 1 – 10 with 1 being very safe, 10 being best avoided. Detailed information is given about the contents of the products. It’s an interesting site.

  1. Hi Carrie,

    Glad to hear that your taking each day as it comes and that Herbie is setting the Beagle world alight!

    I could not help but think of letting you know of a fantastic company, Purist Company Australia (www.puristusa.com) who also happen to be here in the PNW selling a great range of products thats are FREE from sulfates, ethoxylates, parabens, propylene glycol, petrochemicals, silicones and artificial colors.

    I love their products and would recommend them to anyone who wants to make an informed choice about what goes on your body each day.

    Bevo and Roxie send you love and hugs.

    Keep smiling. oxo

    Bevo and Roxie send you hugs and love
