Avoid Toxic Cosmetics When Pregnant

It’s no secret that toxic chemicals are bad for our health. But many people don’t know that the cosmetics and personal care products we use everyday (like skin cream and makeup) may contain harmful chemicals.

Healthy Child, Healthy World created this great infographic specifically looking at how to avoid chemicals in cosmetics when pregnant. Much of the science shows us that these exposures to chemicals are not only important to avoid when one is pregnant, but also BEFORE pregnancy. You can read more about our broken laws on toxic chemicals here, and make sure to not only share this information with your friends, but tell Congress you’re tired of toxic chemicals in consumer products.

    I just love the way this infographic brings the most worrisome aspects of personal care for pregnant moms right to the forefront! It’s so much easier to avoid toxic chemicals when you can pick them out of a lineup like this.

      I agree, I’m very visual so images like this make the information easier to digest!

    Honestly, this scares the heck out of me! I do not wear a lot of cosmetics now – or even when I was pregnant but I we all use something, right? Acne cream. Face wash, etc.
