Beauty & Skin Care Recipes

Health experts say that excessive usage of cosmetics by children enhances their risk to various types of cancer and other problems later in life. Most of cosmetic products use potentially dangerous chemicals like parabens and phthalates. The parabens chemical have been recently found in breast cancer tissues. This chemical can affect the hormone estrogen. The phthalates are linked to lower sperm counts in men, premature breast development and allergies.

What is Beauty?
