One of the most common ways women are exposed to dangerous chemicals is through their health and beauty products! Things like parabens, pthalates, and a host of other unnatural substances are added to a multitude of the products many of us use on a daily basis. It only makes sense, therefore, to start reading the ingredient labels on all the products we may be taking for granted, assuming they’re safe. Turn over some of your makeup containers next time you’re getting ready in the morning. What’s listed in the ingredients? If you can even read the teeny, tiny print, you may notice you don’t know what the vast majority of the items are in there. But take a look at a company like JASCO Organics, and you’ll find shorter, safe lists of natural ingredients.
I’ve been using JASCO Organics’ mineral makeup since I first reviewed them last August. I’m still as impressed now as I was then. I love the control I have over a mineral makeup, and I’ve found that JASCO’s line is easier on my skin than some others I’ve used in the past. Some mineral makeups contain talc, bismuth oxychloride and carmine (derived from beetles), “which are often responsible for allergic reactions to mineral make-up” according to the people at JASCO. I have found it to be the case that some mineral makeup does make me itch, but I have had no issues with the JASCO brand.
In honor of dkMommy Spot’s Breast Cancer Awareness Week, JASCO is giving away a set of their mineral makeup. This set will include a foundation, a bronzer, and a blush, a $45 retail set!
