You have heard of the Dirty Dozen for food, but this list is the Dirty Dozen for ingredients in our cosmetics:
1. BHA and BHT
used mainly in moisturizers and makeup as preservatives. Suspected endocrine disruptors and may cause cancer (BHA). Harmful to fish and other wildlife.
2. coal tar…
Thanks for this list. So many people don’t realize what they can’t pronounce in their personal care products, is actually harmful. Proud to be synthetic additive free!
This book “Clueless in the Kitchen” is about 12$ and has a thorough rundown of almost every basic thing you need to know in the kitchen. It’s really really good if you get overwhelmed over cooking because it explains everything (even the things you’re too embarassed to ask about) and has really delicious, simple recipes.
Definitely not just for teens like the title suggests, anyone can get something from it!
Description and original discovery of a similar book from this post - I googled it, and this book seems to have been inspired heavily by that one, so it seems to be almost identical. This book is posted online for free by the California Department of Public Health, so read/use this pdf with a clean conscience! :)
