Ladies can I just tell you that our cosmetics are loaded with toxic chemicals! Things like talc, bismuth, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrance and fillers. Just type in Google "harmful effects of talc" and you are blasted with the word cancer. You will also see things like asthma, inflammation of the lungs. I even found that talc can contain asbestos fibers, no wonder it can be harmful for the lungs. Talc is made from a mineral and as a powder it absorbs moisture. It is found in cosmetics like blush, powder foundation, eye shadow, and baby powder. Want to know more? Click the link below for a short story on cosmetics.
