9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Luanne Ollivier #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on April 25 2011
Format: Paperback
I've tried in the last few years to clean up the way I eat - less processed and more whole foods. It's absolutely helped with some of my health concerns. But I picked up a copy of There's Lead in Your Lipstick by Gillian Deacon and realized I really hadn't given much thought to all the personal care products I use.

Gill Deacon was reading Stacy Malkan's 'Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of Beauty' while waiting to have an ultrasound to help diagnose her possible breast cancer. It is in Chapter 6 - "Pinkwashing" that the following appears...

"More American women have died of breast cancer in the last 20 years than the number of Americans killed in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War combined." "Many of the big cosmetics corporations that position themselves as leaders in the struggle to eradicate breast cancer - holding annual fundraisers and pink-ribbon campaigns - are in fact, makers and marketers of products that contain many ingredients known or suspected to cause breast cancer."
Deacon's diagnosis was positive. There's Lead in Your Lipstick was started before her diagnosis and finished after her treatment.

"This is not a cancer survivor's rant against the chemical industry. This book is simply a guide for all those who want to be cautious and considered when choosing the products and ingredients they use in, on and around their bodies. So when I read, and share with you on these pages, that an ingredient is linked to cancer and other health concerns, I don't take it lightly. Neither, dare I suggest, should any of us."
Most of us read food labels quite carefully, now that the ingredients and percentages are listed. But how many of us take the time to investigate what's in our shampoo, make up and deodorant etc.

Format: Paperback
Everyone should read this book - not just women. It's astonishing what chemicals are in our personal care products and our everyday cleaning products. This book details what chemicals you should be looking out for when purchasing any personal care products. Certain ingredients are known carcinogens; others are hormone disruptors. Some ingredients produce allergies in certain people and most of the chemicals persist in our bodies. Gillian Deacon gives alternatives for consumers that contain only natural ingredients and essentials oils for fragrance. We are cautioned to be our own advocates and not to trust the big companies that they are using ingredients that are safe for us. Beware 'green washing'!Also, check out the web-site 'Skin-Deep.org' to check if the products you are using are really safe and what the long almost unpronounceable ingredients are.

Like the first publication by Gillian Deacon, (Green for Life) this book is a great source of information about the use of harmful chemicals in everyday products, but also lists the good, green products and "Do It Yourself" recipes. Written in a simple language. A must-read!!!

I heard about book on radio when author was being interviewed. I've made many of the homemade remedies. Bought my sister a book as well. She is equally enjoying hers. An important read for living in our chemical laden society.

I love that book! and this is a great idea for a green gift .
It will help you to make a better choice when purchasing all kinds of products and learn about the chemicals to avoid. There are recipes for making your own products and referrals to many green products manufacturers.I have learned so much with that book! I wish my mom had known about it when we were young to keep us away from all the toxic products we have been using during all these years.

This is a book I bought for myself, then bought more copies to give as gifts. There is a wealth of information inside about ingredients in products we use every day in our personal care routines. Not just lipstick or make up, but body care items like shampoo, deodorant, body wash are profiled. Lots of ingredients you don't want on your body or in your home. Love also her detailed ideas and recipes for replacement products. This book is well researched and written for everyone to read.
