That is a heck of a lot of chemicals, isn't it! I agree, pal, it does make one stop and think.

For those interested I started a thread with links to all organic skin care + there are a lot of sites and a listing of the top ten organic skincare companies! Great if you are looking to avoid the bad chemicals out there!

when i see stuff like that all i think is population reduction.. theyre trying to kill women off and make them pay for it too. lol. why is it that all available products in the market are only these chemical laden ones and more natural ones are non existant?

smqueen,

I do find some decent brands at Whole Foods or my local health food store! I do use oil for cleansing and a essential oil blended into a carrier oil for moisturizing! Check out the companies listed that I linked to some may surprise you!

What about the other 515 chemicals some of us are actually getting injected into the skin. Laughing

On the positive side - at least we're not using arsenic or lead any more!
