I’ve spent years looking for holistic personal care products that are as good to you as they are for you. After several years of experimentation and the urging of friends their personal blends, I decided to develop my own skin-care line. The Nurturing Place’s signature products contain only the finest natural ingredients. The proprietary blends are based on the art of nature and the knowledge of botanical science.
You might be unnerved to find that many cosmetics contain dangerous chemical toxins. Cosmetic manufacturers can use just about any raw material and put them on the market without needing approval by the FDA. Each day, the average adult uses nine personal care products that contain 126 chemical ingredients. Many of these products knowingly violate the safety recommendations proposed by the self-regulating Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board. The risks are more than skin-deep.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics coalition, a project of Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (formerly the Breast Cancer Fund), works to protect the health of consumers, workers and the environment through public education and engagement, corporate accountability and sustainability campaigns and legislative advocacy designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products.
