How Safe Is That Polish?
I’ve noticed a lot of people that visit my webcorner seem to be interested in the safety of cosmetic products. I don’t necessarily lay awake about the safety-factor (when using it on myself) but the curiosity does get to me.
And hey i’d imagine if it gets to me, it must get to more hoomins.
Here’s my bookmarks!
Safe or not
For cosmetics I visit the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database
Super easy system and their database is still expanding.
Insert… “Wet n Wild blue” and BAM you get the Blue Had Me At Hello palette with a toxicity rating of 4, and why.
Another great one is Good Guide:
The only sad thing is that there’s tons of European brands missing, such as Catrice.
But what does it do
There’s a ridiculous amount of names we can’t pronounce on products these days, to check out what they do Paula’s Choice steps in as woman’s little helper.
They simply pitched a visually clear, compact summary of whether an ingredient is trustworthy or not and why the heck it’s in there!
Interesting to just sniff around in as well..
There’s another fabulous one for that, called Cosmetics Info
If all else fails
Might be interesting
So in case you don’t want to check nailpolish removers one by one and want a ready-to-go grocery list, a roundup of decent (but easily obtainable) items per category might be handy. Less Toxic Guide will do just that.
And again so will Good Guide!
Just click a category and done, it’ll even give you a price on the web so that you have no time to hesitate and buy that thing! U-oh… ;)
I’m no wiz but I hope these were a bit helpful to some! If you know of a good database for European cosmetics, lemme know bro!
Race you to the weekend!
