Tarte Mascara January 21, 2009

There ARE toxic chemicals in our cosmetic products (see earlier post on personal care products, visit the Cosmetic Safety Database, check out Not Just a Pretty Face– book and website).

For many years, finding a healthy makeup that actually performed was practically impossible. Thankfully, there has been a lot of progress in the development of quality products that aren’t full of chemicals. This development is making the switch to healthier products much easier for consumers.

Here’s my mascara recommendation:

This is Tarte Mascara. It’s very nice…

It gives those fabulous, fat lashes without all the synthetic crap that other mascaras are full of. Tarte mascara is: paraben free, phthalate free, mineral oil free, sulfate free, preservative free, synthetic dye free, talc free, propylene glycol free, it uses natural fragrances and the packaging is eco-conscious. Only drawback is the price: $18. But, even for me (I’m ultra thrifty), it’s definitely worth the price.
