It is a fact that our bodies absorb much of what we apply to our skin. Approximately one third of all personal care products, (lotions, makeup, hair products, etc.), contain one or more ingredients that are classified as possible cancer causing agents. When we apply our makeup in the morning, we may be using up to 100 dangerous chemicals on our skin. One way to avoid that, is to use organic skin and personal products.
The first product I researched is a 100 % certified organic foundation. It is available from Suncoat Products. It is certified organic, and is made from ingredients such as Shea Butter, Grapefruit Oil and Aloe leaf gel. It is a lotion based liquid mineral foundation, and is not tested on animals. It comes in four shades, and is priced at $20.99 a bottle.It is available at http://www.suncoatproducts.com/index-foundation.htm
