A couple of days ago (you are reading every day, right?!) I mentioned a website, http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/?nothanks=1, where you can check the safety of your cosmetics. The products are scored 0-2 (green) for low hazard, 3-6 (yellow) for moderate hazard, and 7-10 (red) high hazard. It’s interesting to find that the most expensive products/high name recognition don’t typically score very well. Ideally, I’d like every product I use to be a “green” rated item- but, I’m pretty happy with a score 5 and under. Of course, all green is the goal.
Another Favor the Earth product has scored a 0! on the safety chart! Eco-Lips Pure & Simple Lip Balm. They’re available in 3 delicious flavors: kiwi-strawberry, coconut, and grape. They’ve been one of our best sellers since day one, kiwi-strawberry is my personal favorite. They also make a great goody bag item (fyi- bonne bell lip balm/gloss candy lip smackers… an 8. yikes- all the dr. pepper I used as a kid, ugh!).
