I eat as organically as possible. I clean with white vinegar and botanical products with no toxins. Yet my deodorant, my mascara and my lip gloss are filled with toxins and ingredients I cannot pronounce let alone figure out how they are affecting my health.
As a beauty insider, I thought I knew about “all natural” and “organic” brands, having tried thousands of products over the years. But a little lesson from Barrington teen Ava Anderson, President and CEO of Ava Anderson Non-Toxic Cosmetics schooled me in what’s in and what’s out when it comes to beauty products’ ingredients.
