Superhero Secrets: The Story of Cosmetics

Link love from The Conscious Shopper

What a coinkidink...After posting my ode to Annie Leonard last Sunday, what should pop up in my Google Reader this week but Leonard's latest video: The Story of Cosmetics.

I'm pretty psyched about this video because I know it's a topic that gets a lot of people pumped up, especially when it comes to protecting our kids. Toxics in our baby products???? Oh, no. We're not having that....

If The Story of Cosmetics has you thinking about the personal care products you've been using, here are a few more places to check out:
Here at the Green Phone Booth, we've written our fair share of posts on this topic. Check out this trip down memory lane:
And now that you're convinced this is an important topic, take some time to write a quick email to your representatives in support of the Safe Chemicals Act of 2010.

I have to share this amusing story: I have not worn make-up in probably 25 years, Terra Tint lip balm is pretty much the extent of my make-up routine + that's only for special occasions. I was walking through the cosmetics section of a dept. store + a saleslady stopped me, asking if I wanted a make over. I told her I don't wear make-up. Her response was that she could show me some make-up that would make me look like I wasn't wearing any make-up at all.

Now to jump over and watch the new video.
