TotalBeauty.com Article on Baddies

I'm signed up for all kinds of beauty newsletters and this just landed in my box. An article on ingredients to avoid and a few to find. Worth the clicks for new products and another baddie I had forgotten, Thimerosal. I did find it very telling that PARABENS were not mentioned at all in the article. I'm sure the fact that all of their sponsor products contain Parabens had nothing to do with the decision to omit those.

TotalBeauty.com: Dangerous Ingredients You Should Avoid

Thimerosal: Preservative made from Mercury and causes brain damage. I looked around and only Paula Dorf cake mascara is listed as having it.

Thimerosal is also known by these names: Mercurochrome? Merzonin; Merthiolate? Mertorgan; Sodium ethylmercurithiosalicylate Ethyl (2-mercaptobenzoato-S) mercury
sodium salt; Mercurothiolate Merfamin; Thiomersalate Thiomersal; and Thiomersalan [(o-carboxyphenyl)thio] Ethylmercury sodium salt.
