These days the conversation about climate change is a constant concern. A recurring topic on HairBlues.me has been cruelty-free and Vegan products. This month we continue that conversation as we explore what the differences are between cruelty-free, vegan cosmetics, and why some companies use “green” packaging.
The November Wellness Connections podcast explains the difference among these products, and packaging.
Do you know cruelty-free products are not more expensive?

Do you know that there is no confirmation testing on animals makes cosmetics safer for humans?
Do you know that Covergirl has a Vegan product called CleanFresh?

What is “green packaging“?
I must admit when I go into ANY store with cosmetics counters, all those pretty jars, lipsticks, smells and mostly promises, I just can’t help myself with ‘trusting’ what the Brand says it can do. How about you? Are you certain that the cosmetics you’re using on that delicate, beautiful skin of yours is safe? Do you know where you can find out? Well, as usual there is an APP for that :). Take a moment to read the post below then use the links to get yourself one of these APPs: Apple users **** Android users. FYI – when I used the APP I found it easier to click the Browse button, which gave a listing of EWG verified products, for example: Sally B’s Skin Yummies. Sally B’s sells non toxic, organic and cruelty free beauty products.
If you assume that any moisturizer, cleanser, shampoo or makeup product you buy at the drugstore or supermarket is safe to use, you’re assuming too much. According to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), it’s the “responsibility of the manufacturer” to test the safety of its products. Additionally, cosmetic products and their ingredients don’t need to be approved before they hit the market. Source: 6 Skin Care Ingredients to Avoid! | LIVESTRONG.COM
How many of you are thinking about using beauty products that are organically produced? Does it make a difference? How can you know if a beauty product is truly organic? Below are a few things Julyne Derrick, Beauty Expert had to say:
For too many generations, beautiful black women worried whether their beauty was something to celebrate. As a matter of fact, for too long their hair was thought by some to be a source of embarrassment! Oh my goodness, get caught in the rain and get it wet! What a disaster! Flash forward . And how wonderful it is to see today’s young, old, beautiful black women of many hues celebrate their hair, as well as their beautiful diversity. With that said, as we celebrate African-American beauty, we will bring you tips for taking ‘beautiful’ care of yourself, including your hair.

Some of you may remember our post last year, which gave us ideas for using natural products to enhance our beauty. As you may recall, those suggestions came from old beauty rituals used by Native Americans. Well, once again we have found some wonderful suggestions for taking care of yourself using ancient Native American Wisdom.
Native American Beauty Wisdom: Blueberry Honey? Honeysuckle Chamomile? Body Butters? These are just a few of the names used for the products made by the Native Wisdom company. Why don’t you check it out for yourself. I assure you, it will be a nice learning experience. ♦ Native Wisdom is a 100% Native American owned company. Products are made from the highest quality ingredients utilizing Native American Herbology passed down from family elders. The co-owners of the company are three sisters. The eldest sister, a former chemist for the FDA, did extensive research on herbal products. The middle sister has over 10 years experience in the skin care industry. The youngest sister, a dean’s list student pursuing her MBA, specializes in marketing research for the company. via: http://www.nativewisdombeauty.com/index.cfm/fa/pages.main/pageID/2

Do you think about whether your beauty is ‘Natural’? How does one become a ‘natural beauty’ ? What about all the signs fashion and cosmetic experts tell us define beauty? Does beauty get defined from within?
Well, it turns out that there are ways to enhance your beauty, as well as other ways to define it. According to an article I read, natural beauty can be had without facials, makeup, hair extensions, or the latest fashion item. Yes, you can have beauty just by doing some, or all, of the following things:
Did you know that people who smile, and laugh are perceived to be younger? They usually have a more cheerful and younger outlook. Have you ever seen older people who look annoyed, and are, or seem to be, frowning? Chances are they appear older to you. So keep that positive outlook, it will not only make you feel better, it will make you look better.
Remember you’re as young as you feel and if you feel young, you will look younger!

I am convinced aging is something we should welcome. The opportunity to share our mature years with our family and friends is certainly a blessing. Nevertheless, not only do we want to be fit, we also want to look our best. Feeling good about our appearance is important to many of us. So when a study comes out that helps us to do that, we are happy to learn about it.
In a recent study conducted at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia with 903 adults below the age of 55 that regular use of sunscreen show no increase in skin aging. In fact, the study showed that the adults who used sunscreen daily appeared 24 percent younger than those who did not use the sunscreen daily. Miracle? Maybe :), but I think many of us may consider using SPF protection going forward after hearing about these findings. you can read more about the study by clicking this link. via Sunscreen – The New Fountain of Youth? | Advanced Dermatology Blog – Dermatologists in NY and NJ.
