This post is about cosmetics & other personal care products. From morning to night, just take a rough estimate of how many you use. Include the things you use only monthly too. (Go ahead, I’ll wait for you.)
Are any of these on your list?
Think of all of the products you use. Was it more than you thought it was? Even if you can say that you only use a few things, you use most of those things everyday, sometimes twice a day. – It does add up.
Take look at this video:
I’m sure the first thought most people have is “That is so extreme. It’ll never catch on. People won’t go for that.”
I am quite attached to my jet-black liquid eyeliner. So I can understand why people would resist something as subtle as using mashed berries for eye make-up. But is fruit for make-up really extreme?
Now look at this video:
Let’s use the same first thought from the previous video “That is so extreme. It’ll never catch on. People won’t go for that.”
Interesting, right? Why did something so extreme (& toxic) catch on? Why did people go for it? (& still go for it) It’s an interesting question.
The way most cosmetic & personal care products are made today is extreme. Raw fruit & veggies for make-up in my opinion is not extreme. It may not appeal to most of us. But if we really knew what was in the products we are being sold (what we put in & slather on our bodies) we may not find those products appealing either.
It’s definitely something to think about.
No matter what we think about it, let’s consciously create our future. Let’s spread love, spread awareness, & let’s choose wisely!
