The websites that I’ve listed below are in no particular order. I find so much value in reading all of these and wanted to share them with those who are interested in learning more about these topics, politics and current events.
Environmental Working Group is a great website interested in giving information to help the consumer. What I love about this site is that if you go to the page called “health / toxics” then scroll down to the subcategory “cosmetic data base” you can search for hundreds of products, ingredients and companies to see how toxic they are for humans. I strongly recommend that everyone take a look at this site; you will be shocked!!
