Take a look at this article in the Telegraph. It confirms what I have known/suspected for some time. Putting this crap on our skin means it's being absorbed into our bodies - and the companies that use those chemicals don't give a f@#$ about our health (in fact, maybe they are being paid by the pharmaceutical companies to make us sick so we take more drugs!).
I no longer use make-up or nail polish (that's one of the most dangerous products) and I am being more careful to read the labels on the shampoo and moisturizer that I use. No parabens or sodium laurel sulphate for me.
