About the event
You are invited to come watch this important investigative documentary for FREE through a zoom watch party!
A very special guest will kick off the watch party!!
Pretty Toxic explores what's inside beauty and personal care products and brings clarity to widespread confusion that drives consumers to make spending decisions based on misunderstanding, marketing gimmicks and fear. Despite its booming growth, the beauty and personal care products industry in the U.S. is virtually unregulated. Unlike most consumables, personal care products are governed by the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act, adopted in 1938, which requires no government review of products before they go to market, nor can the FDA recall products even if there's a known harm to humans and the environment. Instead, the Act puts companies in charge of ensuring consumer safety, in essence, allowing companies to self-police.

These are just a few of the topics mentioned in the Pretty Toxic documentary. I highly suggest watching it if you're interested in staying healthy.
Many people think that the government agencies are looking out for them, and it's not true at all. Over 1,300 chemicals are banned in Europe, 600 are banned in Canada, and only 11 are banned in the United States. Even when thousands of people complain about a product, the FDA has no power to make a recall.
The average woman is exposed to 168 chemicals by the time she walks out the door in the morning, and those are from soaps, hair products, skincare, or makeup. The average man is exposed to 68, because men tend to use fewer products.
Some people think there's no use in caring because it seems like too much work to eliminate or reduce these toxins. I think that any small changes one can implement will make an impact and hopefully have a domino effect over time.
