Halloween is a very expensive holiday. One of the biggest Halloween expenses is personal care cosmetics and makeup. 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 petro-chemicals that can make anyone sick, especially those with asthma and chemical sensitivities.
Pay close attention to the product, especially the ingredient label. Vibrant wild colours 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 adulterated fragrance, which contains 5,000 petro-chemicals that are not regulated by the U.S. FDA. The fragrance contains phthalates, which are known to be lung irritants. The safe healthy alternative to enjoy a fun festive costume is to use products that contain 100% pure earth-friendly plant essences. Aubrey Organics and Aveda make makeup and colourful 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.
