Check It Out: Almay Pure Blends

Many thanks to reader Frances who sent me this link for Almay's new makeupline Pureblends. I've never purchased Almay because the Cosmetics Safety Database ranks many of their products as dangerous due to their questionable ingredients.

The Pureblends website gives you high level info, but doesn't actually list out the ingredients for each product. I found a few products over on the Walgreens website and it does list out ingredients there. I have to admit that I am honestly surprised. These are some of the best ingredients lists for commercial makeup products I have read in quite a while. I'm glad to see that Almay is finally cleaning up it's act!

Reader Mail: Keratosis Pilaris Cured

This is a great mail from reader CS. She experienced a nasty skin condition for years (commonly known as 'chicken skin') which has been cured by removing Paraben body products from her life. Reader stories like this are important so that others can see the effect Parabens can have on the body. None of her doctors figured it out. You should always evaluate the products that you use when any kind of health problem arises.

Image from Healthopedia.com.


Paraben Free Princess,

I want to share a story with you because I hope it will help others. Paraben free products have completely cured my 8 year struggle with severe Keratosis Pilaris (KP) on my rear, legs, and arms. I first had KP after the birth of my son at age 36, and since then my rear has been riddled with itchy bumps and scabs from my picking. My rear looked like I had a bad case of chicken pox. I went to over 10 physicians, including allergists, and tried literally hundreds of products and prescription drugs. I went so far as to do microdermabrasion on my arms and rear. The eventual solution for me was paraben free products.

I decided, quite by accident, to use Burt's Bees volumizing shampoo and conditioner that is paraben free, hoping it would help me with some mild hair loss. Immediately--I mean the first day--my bumps were improved -- but not cured. I noticed the label said paraben, phthalate, and sulf free. So I thought, well, I'll try other similar products. So I tried Burt's Bees "Radiance" Body Wash and "Radiance" body lotion. Within 5 days, all bumps are gone. Now I have been researching about paraben and experimenting with other paraben free products, and I prefer Alba Very Emollient body lotion (paraben free) and the Radiance Burts Bees Body Wash.

I thought I had oily, acne prone skin, but now I am able to use paraben free cosmetics on my face and I have no break outs or bumps anywhere. The minute I use soaps with parabens I get the bumps back. This has changed my life dramatically. My husband is thrilled! My thinning hair is growing back. I now have my whole family, including my 9 year old, on paraben free soaps and lotions. My son also had bumps and breakouts and when I put him on paraben free soaps he clears up as well. The odd thing is that I had early stage breast cancer about three years ago (thank God for early detection), and I didn't know about paraben and its relationship to breast cancer! Now 3 years later I know that paraben skin products are not good for us breast cancer survivors.
Keep up your good work, Princess. I firmly believe a paraben free world is a healthier world! I also believe I'm doing the right thing for my son to keep him AWAY FROM PARABEN!

Mouthwash and Increased Cancer Link

Yikes! I read this on The Consumerist yesterday. I never liked Listerine or any of those strong mouth washes. I always recommend the Desert Essence mouthwash to friends with mouth and gum problems. Everyone saw improvement. Check it out!

"A review published in the Australian Dental Journal has linked mouthwash containing alcohol to an increased risk of developing the deadly disease.

The alcohol in mouthwash is believed to allow cancer causing compounds to attack the lining of the mouth more easily......."

Lavender and Tea Tree Oil Cause Breast Tissue Growth in Boys

Reader Isabelle sent me a note and in it mentioned hearing a warning about Lavender oil on Dr. Dean Edell's show a while back. Since a lot of baby and children's products do contain lavender and tea tree oil, this is definitely worth taking a few minutes to read. If something as natural as lavender can have such a crazy effect on the body, imagine what the chemical concoction of Parabens are doing...

Breast tissue growth in boys is known as
gynecomastia. The article from the New England Journal states the effect on girls and women is unknown, but you do the math.

Mary Kay Ingredients Paraben Baddies List

MANY thanks to new reader Sommer (you ROCK!) for sharing this list with us. Per a previous post regarding Mary Kay, you can't find product ingredients online. Reps do have access to this information, although it is a bit bass ackwards to search. I think this list should get the point across that Mary Kay is not a brand you want to use if you are trying to avoid Parabens and other nasty chemicals. Avon is no better with their ingredients, but I prefer the Avon brand solely because they post their ingredients online so customers can make informed decisions.

As you go down the list, you will notice many products contain multiple Parabens. Imagine the Paraben accumulation if you used the Mary Kay line from the moment you got in the shower to that last swipe of lipstick.

I swear I didn't just stutter. I received another e-mail from ELF that they were doing another 2-hour minerals sale. Their mineral makeup contains Bismuth, so it may not work well with everyone. Bismuth makes me itch. The sale will include their mineral makeup brushes as well. I shopped around on Thursday, but didn't buy anything. I had these in my cart at one point.

Code: MINERAL75
Shipping: 6.95 - appears to be flat rate. Free shipping on $75




Mineral Brush Kit
