The average woman wears nearly 515 chemicals a day and eats about 4 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime.

Red-Flag Beauty & Cosmetic Ingredients

Because label reading can be really confusing, I find it easier to know what ingredients to avoid rather than what to look for.

Here’s a list of some of the ingredients that you might want to steer clear of due to various health concerns:




propylene glycol

artificial fragrance (often just labeled as “fragrance” or “parfum”)

artificial colors (Red 5, FD&C Yellow 6, etc.)

petrochemicals (including paraffin, mineral oil, PEGs and BHA)


Toxins in Cosmetics

A great report by Dr. Stewart, "Why Oils Heal and Drugs Don't" states,

 " .... Drugs and oils work in opposite ways.

  • Drugs toxify. Oils detoxify.
  • Drugs clog and confuse receptor sites. Oils clean receptor sites.
  • Drugs depress the immune system. Oils strengthen the immune system.
  •  Antibiotics attack bacteria indiscriminately, killing both the good and the bad. Oils attack only the harmful bacteria, allowing our body’s friendly flora to flourish."

These are just a few reasons to use essential oils.
