Update on Detox
Since I last posted on my outrage at Kiehl's and other "beauty" products with dangerous and/or questionable ingredients, there has been a significant development: Johnson & Johnson, one of the world's largest purveyors of cosmetics and personal care products, has pledged to phase out all carcinogens, such as formaldehyde, as well as parabens and their ilk from their products. (Read the New York Times piece on this development here). Breast Cancer Action and the Environmental Working Group, in their Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, are using this victory to pressure other large corporations, such as L'Oreal (which owns Kiehl's) to take similar steps. To participate in this campaign, see here.
