What are your first thoughts when you put your make-up on in the mornings? They're probably not about whether your eyeliner or mascara will leave you with cancer!
And they shouldn't be!
You shouldn't have to worry about your health when you buy supposedly safe products off the store shelf…
Sadly, some cosmetics companies STILL put harmful chemicals in their products. And what's worse, is they really are ashamed about it when caught out. They try to hide the fact they're still doing it!
In fact, just 11 months ago, cosmetics giant Revlon was involved in a tough legal battle in this very situation. The public and Breast Cancer groups found out their products contained cancer-causing ingredients, which they were trying to hide.
Breast Cancer survivours and the Breast Cancer Fund were outraged! Especially since Revlon's a vocal supporter of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. They wanted to know how they could still used harmful, cancer-causing chemicals in their products while being activists for cancer prevention!
So, they petitioned against Revlon with more than 45,000 signatures. They demanded the removal of chemicals from products.
But Revlon didn't simply apologies and promise to do the right thing. Instead, the group retaliated and sued petitioners to silence them, says Janet Nudelman, director of program and policy at the Breast Cancer Fund.
Unfortunately, there's little information available as to what happened next. But another ugly article about Revlon and chemical popped up in a separate incident in June of this year. So you can assume there's been no major changes…
And while it's not up to us to slander companies for what they do, it's important you are aware of what's in your favourite products. And with this information you can decide whether to throw out certain brands if they contain one of these five cancer-causing ingredients…... ››› more

Your first reaction to dry, flaky, itchy skin might be to buy a heavy-duty skin cream off the shelf at your local store and smother your skin in it.
If you do, watch out, warn dermatologists.
It might be the CAUSE of your skin condition rather than the cure you're looking for.
This because many cosmetic products, including skin creams, contain ingredients that cause contact dermatitis - a skin allergy from touching something like the ingredients in your cream.

Or should I say, the ingredients don't harm your eyes.
There is, however, one reason using mascara CAN cause severe damage to your eye health, but it has little to do with the manufacturers and more to do with you…
