Clean up my cosmetics from toxic products

These are the products responsible for keeping my skin young and firm. Or at least this is what they are supposed to do. The total value of them is approximately 300 EUR. Even if I am not using all of them on a daily basis, still this is quite big amount of money. And this simple calculation is not even taking in consideration all the products, like make up and perfumes. The most of them are labeled as "bio" or "natural", so my assumption was that they should be clean of chemicals or other toxic ingredients. Let's take a closer look.

Some time ago I was horrified from a short movie showing how many toxic ingredients can be found in our cosmetic products for daily use and what are the consequences for our health. Since then I've started to research more carefully what is written on the back side of the package of my cosmetics and I noticed that having the logo "bio" or "natural" is not enough to prove the quality of those products. The price is also not a factor for getting toxic-free products - sometimes cheaper cosmetics contain even less dangerous ingredients.
I've decided to sort out all the products, that are containing toxic ingredients and to find more natural replacement for them.

These are two short videos on the topic:

Hey! How are the efforts to remove toxic products from your lifestyle going on? Have you managed to find real natural replacements?

Here is a toothpaste which is available in Canada. It seems like a popular choice for natural products - Himalaya. Check if it is available in your area.

Hi Ando! Thanks for sending me this motivation! I am progressing quite good. I have removed already some of my cosmetics, but for others it is really difficult to find a proper replacement.
