1) Read labels. Shopping for cosmetics is like shopping for groceries.
You have to read the ingredients. Chemicals to watch out for:
A. Parabens--a preservative linked to breast cancer, weight gain
and hormone disruption. Its prefixes are ethyl, methyl, butyl,
isobutyl or propyl.
B. Talc--contains a chemical that is similar to asbestos and can
increase the risk of certain ovarian cancers.
C. Fragrance--this term is used to mask hundreds of chemical
ingredients including phthalates which disrupts the endocrine
system and may cause reproductive and developmental harm.
