truth about cosmetic toxicity

Clean with soap,
Shampoo the hair,
Lotion the bod,
Talc with care,

Polish the teeth,
Gargle and spit,
Spray the hair,
Cream a bit

Foundation first,
Apply the blush,
Redden the lips,
Looking lush!

Shadow the eyes,
Lengthen the lash,
Line the mouth,
A perfume splash

The final touch,
SPF in tow,
No sun for me,
The fatal foe


(The Mumbo Jumbo Recipe)

Soap with PH 9
and Cocoamide DEA.
Sprinkle on a little asbestos.
Petroleum the body to moisturize

Polish teeth with saccharin and more petroleum
Rinse the mouth with toxic alcohols.
Coat hair with PVP¹s
Paraben and propylene glycol to moisturize

Lather on the paraben and glycol again as a cover up
Highlight the cheeks with FD&C Red #3
Paraffin and benzo the lips
Feeling deadly yet?

Toxify with Iron Oxide to color the eyelids
PVP the eyelash along with the all the bacteria
that hangs out in the mascara.
Ethylhexyl acrylate to outline the lips with more carcinogens

Add a spritz of toxic scent toluene and benzaldelhyde

Add the pièce de résistance for the final touch: Padimate O and BNPD
preservative in the sunscreen, creating a carcinogen with a wild name:

Mumbo Jumbo ..I am now a toxic bath of cosmetic pleasures.

When you start to understand the chemicals in the products we use ever day it's scary.
I love your products dearly, will you ever expand into cosmetics? That'd be Bliss. :)

Thank you, Ashley.  Yes, it can be scary out there.  Maybe one day we shall do make up.  Our 'to do' list is getting quite long but we never say never!  Martha
