The Eco Friendly MakeUp Mall
10 years ago I'd discovered through my environmental / health & beauty research that a group of chemicals called parabens commonly used as synthetic preservatives in cosmetic-personal care items were found in breast cell tumors and became a suspect in the cause of breast cancer. Troubled by this I looked for chemical free beauty products and I found them, please share this board with all the women you know and love to help reduce their risk of developing this life threatening disease.
Simple Chemical Free Detangler: Forget about those chemical cocktails called "detanglers" my daughter's hair likes to turn into a mass of dried felt when ever I wash it, even oiling it doesn't help then, however a simple solution of 2x 1 litre of warm water and 2 tbsp of concentrated lemon juice makes a rinse that allows me to actually brush out her hair quite easily.
i know this isn't makeup itself but I thought anyone visiting this board would love to have one of these for their eco-make up: Magnetic Make-up board. Cover a sheet of metal with fabric and glue to a frame. Add small magnets to the back of your make-up products
I didn't want to spend $40+ on MAC's 187 stippling brush, so I decided to try this set from Eco Tools. I even tried a Sonya Kushak that was supposedly comparable to the MAC brush, but it was just too thick and stiff. This Eco Tools stippling brush only comes in a set, but at least the whole thing is only $15!
