What's on your face? Cosmetics uncovered

Source: new zealand herald, Date: May , 2014

Every day women expose themselves to around 168 different chemicals hidden in products like deodorants, shampoos and cosmetics, which are spread with gay abandon over every inch of skin.

These chemicals don't just stay on our face - the average woman ingests 0.057 mg of lippy daily, around 1.248 kilos of the stuff over sixty years.

So ladies, what are we really putting on our faces?

Toxins in cosmetics have been linked to hormone-related problems, birth defects and skin irritation. Mothers are even transferring them to their unborn children.
