Hi everyone, I happened upon this site and it is a must-see. As you probably know the FDA doesn’t regulate anything that is put in to cosmetics (which includes makeup, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, sunscreens, etc) There are chemicals in some products that are very toxic and they don’t have to disclose it. This site has a huge database of cosmetics and it gives ratings on a scale of 0 – 10, 10 being the most toxic. Results may surprise you. I use to use L’Oreal’s Kids shampoo for my girls but I found out it is very toxic. You can type in to the database the name of any of your products you use and it will tell you how safe they are. Be sure to check out your sunscreen. It tells you if the sunscreen is toxic AND if it really works.
