Holiday parties are just around the corner and who doesn't want to sparkle and light up the room?  This holiday season, clients from our personal sustainability programs are opting to sparkle organically via organic makeup. 

Personal care product preferences are often very heavily brand-driven.   As a personal consultant to individuals seeking a more sustainable lifestyle, I encourage clients to evaluate alternatives to traditional brands.  Building a personal sustainability plan includes choosing products that are good for the environment as well as your personal health.    Why opt for organic makeup?  According to the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), many conventional products continue to have alarmingly high levels of carcinogens and recommend avoiding products containing the following ingredients:   •    Cocoamidopropyl Betaine •    Oelfin Sulfonate •    Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate •    Potassium Cocoyl Glutamate •    Parabens •    Phenoxyethenol   Our eco friendly training directs questions pertaining to safe ingredients in skin care to Skin Deep.  Skin Deep is a safety guide to cosmetics and personal care products brought to you by researchers at the Environmental Working Group.  Click here to continue reading.
