These days, the big money in beauty isn’t made at a high-end cosmetics counter on shadows for eyes and shades for lips. Real sales are coming from the small, “mini-me” tag-a-longs who insist on looking like Mommy.
Hopefully if Moms really get this, they will make necessary changes to protect their kids from the dangers lurking in the makeup aisle at the local market, saving them from a life-long increased possibility of all kinds of brain, nerve, and major organ damage, hormone disruption, and other unnecessary physical breakdowns caused by chemical bombardment.
A quote from Anne Hart, Examiner in Sacramento:
Some of the chemicals in question are endocrine disruptors. They are the phenols, phthalates, and phytoestrogens in some beauty products. The problem is those chemicals interfere with the body’s endocrine, or hormone, system.
Maybe it’s time to use organic, natural beauty products you make yourself that aren’t coated with chemicals or plasticizers. It’s not only cosmetics. These plasticizers are sometimes used as coatings on some types of time-released nutritional supplements and medications. You also find these chemicals and coatings in various types of commonly used consumer products such as nail polishes, cosmetics, perfumes, lotions, and shampoos.

Sure, there are many of you out there, the conscious enlightened ones who eat real foods, drink pure water and read labels before purchasing anything. This article isn’t for you.
Speaking directly to those of you who just purchased a lip gloss or nail polish for your little ones, this is a wake-up call! Turn the bottle over and attempt to read the ingredients.
- No ingredients list?
- Dont recognize any of the ingredients?
Now hear this: If you care about your child you will deal with their kicking and screaming while you throw it away.
Kid’s beauty is such a controversial issue that only the bravest of souls in the industry speak out against what is going on behind the scenes.
Consciously concerned Moms will need to take the time to read labels on these new products, do proper research and say no to the toxic poison instead of buying into it.
“They” will tell you it’s all a sham, that organics are silly and pointless, but that’s untrue. Don’t trust that it’s safe for you just because its on a shelf at your local drug store. Choosing beauty products wisely means you are choosing a healthy life in the long run over a lifetime of indefinable illness.
These are a few of the best, integrity-driven beauty products for kids:
1. Ladybug Jane’s Flavor Balms – The best for Lips! Any product from this bug can do no wrong. Every organic, vegan, fair trade, cruelty-free ingredient is carefully selected by the company’s owner, who truly cares.
2. Piggy Paint – A top pick for Nails! These fun-inspired shades are non-toxic; free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone.
3. 100% Pure – It’s 100% Natural! Their gentle formulas are free from synthetic chemicals, harsh detergents, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives or any other toxins that can harm a child’s young, delicate skin.
And finally, an Editor’s question:
Moms, when your babies are threatened you rise to the occasion, but why weren’t YOU reason enough to make the switch to healthy-living long ago?
