SPF Skin and Planet Safety

Happy Earth Day ! In celebration of Earth Day, Today Hairblues is focusing on “planet friendly” SPF products . By the way, do you know that there are two ingredients in most SPF products , which are harmful to coral reefs?

SPF has a range of uses. For example, it’s remarkable that simply stated, when used correctly, sunscreen products may help prevent some skin cancers, including melanoma. “Sun protection factor (SPF): Is a number on a scale for rating the degree of protection provided by sunscreens.” Some African-Americans and Hispanics have a misunderstanding about requiring sunscreen. In fact, although  darker-skin people  have more melanin, they can get sun-burned and get skin cancer.  The great Jamaican Reggae artist Bob Marley was diagnosed with Melanoma, which happened to be located just under a toenail.

Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Bill for 2020

It’s a brand new year, and  brand new times  for cosmetics in California. That’s right!

Some of you may remember my post in September 2018, when I reported that a bill was introduced by Former Governor  of California, Jerry Brown to BAN animal testing for cosmetics. https://hairblues.me/2018/09/30/animals-will-be-freed-from-testing-cosmetics/

It turns out that animal testing cosmetics is not a requirement to prove that cosmetics are safe.  The new  law has come  into effect as of January 1, 2020. This new law bans the sale or import of animal tested cosmetics.  In addition, the states of Nevada, and Illinois have joined in the push to BAN animal testing on cosmetics.  This is the first such law in the United States.  https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2020/02/01/business/ap-us-animal-tested-cosmetics-bans.html

Cruelty Free: Makeup & Shaving Brushes

Happy New Year to you all!  Have you made any New Year’s resolutions that you think you can keep?

Since my last post, I have continued my research on “cruelty-free” products that relate to our beauty regimen and the choices we are making to render ourselves beautiful.

So with that in mind, I decided to check what our makeup brushes are made out of. How many of us have actually thought about where our makeup brushes come from? What is used to make them?  This might make you feel a little uncomfortable, but it turns out that makeup brushes are often made from animal hair! That’s right. Squirrel hair, and badger hair.  Badger hair is in fact used for some of the best and expensive shaving brushes!  So guys, you also should be thinking about what you are using to shave that handsome face in the morning. According to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) shaving products can also have animal derived ingredients. Continue reading Cruelty Free: Makeup & Shaving Brushes
