Is your beauty routine toxic?

Ever wondered if the products you are using in your beauty routine have any dangerous ingredients?  Or maybe you want to know about the products you are using on your baby.  Well, there is a place where you can go to check the toxicity of all the products you are using.  The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has created a Cosmetics Database where you can search products and it will rate the toxicity and break down which ingredients are risky.  You can also search different categories, sunscreen for example, to find the brands that are non toxic.  The rating system works like this: 0-2 is Low Hazard, 3-6 is Moderate Hazard, 7-10 is High Hazard.  Ideally, you want all of your products to fall under the Low Hazard rating.  Check it out and make sure nothing you are using on yourself or your kids is toxic!  http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/.  NOTE: Not all brands are rated.
