What’s in Our Cosmetics?

October 9, 2012

We use our yoga practices to learn how to listen to our bodies—how we must take care in the way we move them, feed them and nourish our body/soul connection with our actions and lifestyle. We pay attention to what goes in to our bodies, but how about what goes on them? The skin is our biggest organ, shielding us—and absorbing—the hazards of our day.

The Story of Cosmetics, released on July 21st, 2010, examines the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. Produced with Free Range Studios and hosted by Annie Leonard, the seven-minute film by The Story of Stuff Project reveals the implications for consumer and worker health and the environment, and outlines ways we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and towards safer alternatives.
