Keep Toxic Chemicals out of my Moisturizer!

I am still on my search for non-toxic skin care and cosmetics.  I have tried several.  Some I am happy with, and others not so much.  I’m not sure if the fine lines and wrinkles I am noticing are due to the fact that I am not using some of my old products any more and that the non-toxic ones don’t do the trick, or that I am simply getting older!  But I would rather have a few wrinkles than cancer!

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), women use an average of 12 personal care products daily, and are exposed to 168 ingredients each day.  Most of them have not be tested for safety and many are carcinogenic. This video spells out the situation clearly and is definitely worth watching:

EWG examined the ingredients in over 60,000 products and reporst on the safety of these products.   Their  Skin Deep database is a great resource for researching the toxicity of skin care products and cosmetics. I would love to hear your thoughts on this issue.  If you are happy with your non-toxic products please share!!
