Toxic Vices
lovey_dorlaque wrote in nontoxic_living
I live a well-rounded organic life.  I vote with my dollar shopping only for products that contribute and foster to ecological conservationism. I buy local, organic produce.  I recycle, reuse, etc. Everything is green about me except for what lurks in my cosmetics closet.  I'm transitioning one bit at a time, it's been a long, vengeful change.  Mainly, my Coco Mademoiselle.  It's liquid poison, I know it.  You know it.  Hello, my name is Lovey and I'm a cosmoholic.
So this day.  I switch to pure essential fragrant oils.
Tell me I'm not the only one out there clinging to some vile remnant.

More for you than for the environment

Detox actually has as much more immediate benefit for your health than can be immediately seen for the environment. The use of perfume is like ingesting poison. I'd research the tampons you use to assure the lowest risk. Much of organic living is to better your health and your personal environment.

Re: More for you than for the environment

I don't know why that went anonymous, but also check out It's a working group that strives for more manufacturers to take responsibility for the ingredients used that are toxic, carcinogenic, etc.
