Wanna give good face without the parabens?

This is another one from Ideal Bite, related to yesterday’s post. I believe that Whole Foods has cosmetics you can buy that are paraben-free.

The Bite
As many-a-Biter knows, parabens are synthetic preservatives that can disrupt hormones – and they’re everywhere, even your makeup bag. Next time you primp, use paraben-free cosmetics for gorgeousness inside and out.

The Benefits

  • Get glam. These cosmetics look fab – freedom from parabens is an added bonus.
  • Better for Biter bodies. Cosmetics ingredients aren’t regulated by the FDA, so you gotta take extra precautions on what your largest organ (yeah, your skin) consumes.
  • Better for the earth, since the chems that we wash off our bodies often end up in nature.

Personally Speaking

A self-proclaimed cosmetics junkie, Heather scans new beauty finds at Skin Deep, an online database of skin care and cosmetic products ranked by safety.
