Although there’s been a lot of bad news about safe cosmetics, it’s not all bad.

We’ve written extensively about dangerous ingredients in cosmetics and skin care products, and also about the importance of using natural skin care products that don’t contain dangerous ingredients.

And we’ve highlighted some of the studies done which show such problems with cosmetics and skin care products like lead in lipsticks and phthalates in personal and beauty and body care products. And also about parabens in skin care products and cosmetics.

From time to time come good news comes along and today is such a day. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has alerted us today that they have detected a decline in the levels of phthalates in some products. In particular they point to the perfume Poison.

They found 4 different phthalates in Poison during the last test, but this time they have tested Poison and found it to be – less poisonous. No phthalates at all. This is great news and means, it appears, that the body care and cosmetics and perfume companies are starting to take notice of the fact that the public don’t want poisonous ingredients in their cosmetics and skin care products.

It would seem obvious wouldn’t it?

But a small step is an important one nevertheless. And the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics says it isn’t confined just to Poison, but there are signs that some of the bigger companies are slowly removing poisonous ingredients like phthalates from their products this has to be good.

But if you want to find a range of totally safe cosmetics click here.

Because they also point out that there are others still using the same old poisons.

You need to find out whether the products you may be buying now could be hazardous.

We’ve talked before about dangerous skin care products, and how there may well be hazardous ingredients in the skin care products that you may well buy now.

How there is little FDA regulation or control of what ingredients skincare companies can use in their skincare products, and for that matter in cosmetics either, and that this can result in skincare products and anti aging products with ingredients  in them that are considered to be hazardous. (Though not all skin care are hazardous, just some)!

And when it comes to buying great skin care products, the very FIRST consideration for you, the consumer, is that the product doesn’t have the potential to do you harm.

Many skin care products don’t perform well, or do nothing at all for promoting great looking healthy skin. But when they can actually harm your skin, or your health, that’s another matter entirely.

So if you buy skin care products and anti aging products now, and are wondering if any of those products could be hazardous, what do you do about it?

There’s a way to research this. There is an organization called the Environmental Working Group which runs the Cosmetic Safety Database, which reports on the companies, and the products, that may be worth avoiding. They list products according to the degree of risk ingredients in those products may pose to users.

It’s listed on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is lower risk, or hazard, and 10 is maximum hazard.

So you don’t want to find that the products YOU use are a 7 or 8 on the hazard scale.

Find out.

Just go to the Cosmetic Safety Database and search either the product that you use or the company that makes it. You’ll see the search tool right there on their home page.

I just searched “Olay” for an example. The database tells me that Olay has 279 products listed from 1 to 9. I clicked the “OLAY AGE DEFYING AGE DEFYING ANTI-WRINKLE DAILY LOTION, SPF 15”.

It tells me that this product rates a hazard rating of 7 out of 10, and is not recommended. And it tells you what the problems with it are. It tells you that the products ingredients are linked to:

1. Cancer.
2. Developmental/reproductive toxicity.
3. Allergies.
4 And a list of other concerns.

(and that the company tests on animals too. And that they haven’t signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics.)

So if you’ve read our site, and you’re concerned about the safety of the products you may be using, including sunscreens, skincare products, anti aging products, cosmetics and more, you can research exactly what the problems you face may be.
