Top Toxic Free Mascaras

Mascara is a beauty boosting must have cosmetic staple in my book.

I happen to have light colored eyelashes which most definitely need all the they help they can get to stand out.
For years I got my eyelashes dyed, until the one time some of the dye seeped through the vaseline and cotton and got in my eye. It was the most horrific, painful and frightening thing I have ever been through. I literally thought I was going to go blind.

That’s when Mascara became my new best friend.

Turns out my new best friend was also pretty toxic.

Doesn’t matter if it is an expensive or moderately priced mascara, if you want to protect your most precious asset, you must read the ingredient list.

Ingredients you want to avoid include:

  • Sulfates
  • Phthalates
  • GMOs
  • Triclosan,
  • Triethanolamine
  • Parabens
  • Diazolidinyl
  • Urea,
  • BHT
  • Coal tar
  • Petroleum based ingredients
  • Ethyl acetate,

All of these ingredients are toxic and may cause cancer, allergies, immunotoxicity, endocrine disruption and reproductive toxicity.

Thank goodness there are lots of great toxic free mascaras on the market.
