Cute, Horrific: “The Story Of Cosmetics”

Given the choice between this video on toxins in cosmetics and an M. Night Shyamalamadingdong feature, we’d definitely say the former would be more terrifying. Perhaps you prefer to live in ignorance, but this clip brought to you by The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics spells out some pretty scary facts about the products you’re using every day. One of the most disturbing things we took away from it: the beauty industry basically isn’t policed. They make their own rules and aren’t even required to follow them. Meaning, they can slap a “healthy” label onto a bottle and then put nearly any chemical they wish into the product. And, according to the video, there are probably tons of toxins in your body right now. Ahh! [Story of Stuff]
