Mascara BlackList

October 29, 2010

Mascara Blacklist

There are things that should stay off your skin and thats why we created the mascara blacklist.  As you can see, its a simple list that you may want to refer to at the time you buy mascara. There are a lot of different ingredients that go into making a great mascara product.  However, you need to be fore-warned that not all ingredients are good for you.  Below to the right is a list of chemicals that are not good for your body.  These are chemicals you are highly suggested to keep AWAY from your body.  We created this mascara blacklist so you are better informed consumer.  These items are not organic mascara products.  These would definately not be considered natural beauty products.
