Wow, I knew that some makeup and other products had harmful ingredients but didn't realize to what extent. I'm so glad Whole Foods is helping make people aware of how important it is to use organic and natural products!

Excellent topic and we should try to be more careful with what we ingest as well as what we apply topically.

I am paying very close attention to what I put on my skin. Including changing my deodorant to aluminum free.

I don't want to have dangerous chemicals and ingredients absorbed through my skin. http://www.girl-woman-beauty-brains-blog.com/

When you think about your skin as an organ, it is really crazy to consider soaking it with lotions loaded with chemical- this seeps right into ones blood stream, not to mention it dehydrates the skin.

Good point Regina made. Many deodorants are loaded with aluminum and can really have adverse affects.

Very interesting! It's not something I even thought about until lately. I'll have to watch the ingredients of my beauty supplies.

A natural moisturizer is so important this time of year. Really any seasonal change causes a change in your skins ph and it can easily dry out. The natural approach is so much more beneficial, thanks for carrying and promoting such products!

After suffering from acne and hyperpigmentation, I have become an ingredient reader. I threw away EVERY commercial product I had, my nose became as sensitive as my skin. Most commercial products are full of perfumes that my skin can't tolerate. I've found that shea butter works very well for my skin, arbutin and kojic acid are best for hyperpigmentation and I could go on and on...

Thanks for creating an all natural beauty care line. It was surprising hearing all the different chemicals that you should stay away from. Can't wait to try some!!!!

This information is very interesting. I never considered trying all natural makeup.

I learned that skin products containing petrolatum, paraben and/or mineral oil should be avoided!

As I have gotten older, I have started considering quality instead of cost when it comes to my personal care products. It is true that natural products are often more costly than mass produced commercial ones. IMO, it's worth paying the $ if it means it is better for my skin, and I am not covering myself with harmful preservatives.

I'm hideously allergic to makeup and related products, no wonder! I'll definitely have to check into natural products, I've just been going au natural up to now :)

It is always great to learn more about the skin as a key organ. I believe in natural products esp in cosmetics. Preservatives are scary! Thanks for the great information.

Thanks for the info! I've started to read labels on almost everything. I'm glad we can go to stores like whole foods and not worry about what we are putting in or on our bodies. Keep up the good work!

I linked here from www.mommymandy.com for the givewaway. Thanks! Informative podcast. But I wonder is there a master list somewhere on the internet of makeup and skincare ingrediants that we should avoid?

I think I need to throw out all my makeup and start over!

Choosing healthy, natural products has become difficult (if not impossible) in other stores. It is nice to know that Whole Foods not only carries the most pure products, but continues to review and update them as new information becomes available. Thank you for making shopping for body products (and everything else you carry) easy again!

Wish there were more ways we could sample these products before investing in them. http://the-coveted.com
