the above website is pretty interesting. it tells you the relative toxicity of your skin/hair care/make up/etc products. most of the stuff on there is organic or touted as natural. a lot of ingredients have not been tested before and they do mark that as a negative. i don't always agree that these untested ingredients are harmful though, so i just took from it what i wanted.

Lush Cosmetics here is a bit of info from lush.co.uk:

Here at Lush we take the contents of our products seriously. Our products are made with the freshest organic* fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics, without any animal ingredients. (We also do not purchase ingredients from any organisations which has any involvement in animal testing). We put in far more detail than most cosmetics companies, with the English as well as the official Latin names so you know where you are with our products. An amazing 73% of our current product range (Not including the gift range), is suitable for Vegans, we hope you'll like them!
*We also believe words like "fresh" and "organic" have honest meaning beyond marketing.

Make up causes cancer?
They were talking yesterday on Fox news about how makeup causes cancer and kills you . Okay, two things. Number one, one more reason for me to hate Fox news (stupid report! ); number two, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ! Yeah, right. Then every woman I know is gonna die soon! And real soon at that!

I think we all know this is kinda silly, but just in case, at least I'll die looking lovely!!!:p

Southern Magnolia Minerals
I'm still addicted to natural cosmetics so I've decided to update this thread with new suggestions for natural alternatives to mainstream cosmetics.

SO...

I no longer use Zuzu Luxe... I've switched to mineral makeup! At first I used Bare Minerals (i.d.) but the Bismuth Oxychloride (http://ezinearticles.com/?Mineral-Ma...oride&id=68978) made me breakout and it made my skin too shiny. Now I use a brand called Southern Magnolia Minerals, which can be purchased via ebay. It's great because it contains no harmful chemicals or fillers.

A Southern Magnolia Minerals statement:

All of our mineral products are 100% NATURAL. Ingredients:
  • FOUNDATION: Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxides, Kosher Grade Rice Powder.
  • EYESHADOW, BLUSH, BRONZER: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, and/or Mica.
  • CONCEALER/CORRECTORS: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.
  • RICE POWDERS: Kosher Grade Rice Powder, Zea Mays, Iron Oxides.
  • MINERAL VEIL: Zea Mays, Zinc Oxide.
  • PERFECTION POWDER: Sericite.
  • SHINE REDUCTION POWDER: Kosher Grade Rice Powder, Authentic Silk Powder.
Absolutely NO Preservatives, Fillers, Talc, Additives, Chemicals, Oils, Perfumes, Bismuth, Carmine, or Parabens. NOTHING BUT 100% PURE GOODNESS!

This mineral makeup can be applied wet or dry and offers great coverage! Although it is a different kind of coverage vs. the thick paste-like or paint-like consistency of mainstream cosmetics. Your skin can actually breathe with this makeup! Plus, the prices are very affordable.

There's a similar thread ("Toxic ingredients in cosmetics") in Skin, Body and Haircare if you are interested

The Mineral Make-up thread is good too. There are a lot of brands similar to Southern Magnolia to try.
