Product description

Review

"Our toxic chemical exposure is nothing short of a calamity. This book is essential to understanding what is at stake and how to make healthier choices every day – for the planet and for our families." - David Suzuki

"This book connects the reader to the issues and the solutions in an engaging way. A can-do roadmap to a better and healthier life!" - Dr. Rick Smith, Executive Director of Environmental Defence and bestselling author

"I love this book! Thank you to Gillian Deacon for your bravery in writing such an honest and comprehensive book about what we need to know about the products we put on our bodies." - Stacy Malkan, co-founder of Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

"This book just made me realize I've unknowingly been putting cancer-causing ingredients onto my head every day in my hair conditioner! It's also reaffirmed my love of cocoa butter. A wake-up call to ease the chemical burdens on our bodies and our planet." - Sarah Harmer

"Gillian Deacon has given us all a generous gift: a comprehensive, exhaustive and timely guidebook to the Great Unwash." - Gord Downie

"As someone who doesn't wear lipstick, I thought this book may not apply to me, but as Gill points out, anything we put on our skin finds its way into our body. There's Lead in Your Lipstick is the definitive guide to ensuring we don't inadvertently smother ourselves in chemicals and animal by-products, thereby increasing our risk of disease." - Brendan Brazier, bestselling author of The Thrive Diet and Thrive Fitness

"Gill Deacon's There's Lead in Your Lipstick is a wake-up call for women of all ages to look beneath the gloss of the beauty industry. Essential reading." - Emily Haines
