The Story of Cosmetics is a seven-minute film written by Annie Leonard and produced by Free Range Studios.This entertaining and honest video examines the rampant use of toxic chemicals in our personal care products from lipstick to baby shampoo. These toxic chemicals end up in our bodies, our kids and our waterways. Many of these toxins are linked to cancer, hormone disruption, infertility, asthma, birth defects and learning disabilities.
Jane Iredale, a pioneer in the ecologically sound cosmetics industry, was the first to supply a makeup line that is truly good for the skin and based on minerals. Jane Iredale Cosmetics can be found at the Atlanta School of Massage bookstore. Check out Sense & Sustainability – Practical tips for greening your spa, a free webinar with Jane Iredale.
