Do you want to have a fun Halloween that is safe and non toxic and earth friendly? Everyone loves to get dressed up in an outlandish creative outfit with wild colorful makeup that stands out in the crowd. Wearing funky creative zany costumes can be a fun way to celebrate Halloween, as long as the makeup is organic, earth-friendly, and non-toxic. Throughout the store, you'll see the regular merchandise combined with racks of new Halloween paraphernalia. All that makeup may look appealing, fun, and eye-catching, but it contains potentially harmful petrochemicals and neurotoxins that can make anyone sick, especially those with asthma and chemical sensitivities.
Pay close attention to the product, especially the ingredient label. Vibrant wild colors contain F.D.&C. (Food, Drugs, & Cosmetics). These are derived from coal tar, petroleum, the same toxic smelly goo used to repair roads and rooftops. Essentially, you are putting gasoline on your face and in your hair. The cosmetics also contain synthetic fragrance, which contains 10,000 petrochemicals that are not regulated by the U.S. FDA. The fragrance contains phthalates, which are known to be lung irritants. If this sounds gross and scary, then you are paying attention. The good news is that you don't have to buy these terrible toxic products that will potentially make you feel awful and are not earth friendly.
Take a trip to your local organic natural food shop and get to know the natural products and cosmetics being sold there. The expression, which is a law about Kosher eating, "if in doubt, do without," also applies to cosmetics. Since your skin is your body's largest organ and absorbs everything like a sponge, your safe healthy choice is to wear organic or wear nothing.
The safe healthy alternative is to enjoy a fun festive costume and to use products that contain 100% pure earth friendly plant essences. There are many companies that make makeup and colorful hair decorations that contain 100% organic plant essences. You can have fun and celebrate and smell like organic roses, sandalwood, and mint and everyone will feel healthy and happy.
