According to Newswire Today Charlize Theron and Woody Harrelson requested eco-friendly skincare products on the set of their upcoming movie Battle in Seattle, scheduled for release on November 29, 2007. 

The head make-up artist used organic, chemical-free skin care and make-up products from a website called Alchemist’s Apprentice, an online apothecary that sells high end natural and organic skin care products.

According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, not only is there “evidence link[ing] the pollutants and man-made chemicals that are in our environment and in products to cancer and other diseases” but “major loopholes in federal law allow the $35 billion cosmetics industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no required monitoring of health effects, and no inadequate labeling requirements.”

Evidence also suggests that our immediate water systems and environments, as well as our bodies, absorb significant amounts of what we put on our skin.  Luckily, green and natural skincare products are popping up all over, and I can attest that Terressentials is a yummy one that does the trick! 

Here at Ecorazzi we are psyched that going green and being beautiful go hand in hand!

    Not only are cosmetics sometimes dangerous to human health, but a number of major companies still test their products on animals, which is cruel and unnecesseary, given the many alternatives to product tests involving live animals.
