HEY, DO YOU WANT TO "Really" KNOW HOW TOXIC THAT COSMETIC, SUNSCREEN, MAKEUP OR  HAIRCOLOR BRAND is?

Then:   Just submit the name of the product to: WWW. SKIN DEEP.COM 
  the cosmetic website for E.W.G.     
It is really Activism in Cosmetics by putting the REAL INFO UP FOR EVERYONE TO SEE AND DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT TO USE. SO YOU CAN BE AN ACTIVIST TOO just like me, by simply submitting to Skin Deep the name of the product.

Additionally,
YOU CAN also   SUBMIT THE NAME OF ANY HAIRCOLOR BRAND, COSMETICS, SUNSCREENS TO:

www.campaign4safecosmetics.com

www.thegoodguide.com

www.Cosmeticdatabase.com            YOU CAN TYPE IN ANY INGREDIENT FROM THE LIST ON YOUR PACKAGE AND LOOK IT UP..

or
Cosmeticingredients.org.



Laundry Soap:
Costco   beleive it or not, also has a organic brand called FIT   which I really llike.   

My home favorates are:  Borax    or  else a mix of baking soda and vinegar are great cleansers for sink and tile, let sit a bit then scrub.  So shinny a sink as ever you have seen.

Gluten Free Foods sources, Catalogs are free, best pricing.  NOTE:  OF COURSE THERE IS IN NEED TO LOOK FOR GLUTEN FREE COSMETICS, UNLESS YOU ARE GLUTEN INTOLERANT and SINCE YOU ARE ONLY PUTTING IT ON YOUR HAIR AND NOT SCALP ON THE SURFACE, THERE IS NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IT. ITS IS JUST ANOTHER GIMMIK.

Fyi:  If you are not suffering from celiacs disease you do not need to stop eating gluten  or use gluten free products.   This is another "Trend".

I have always been an Activist. Have meet many important Activists and worked with them on projects.  A major project in San Francisco in 2000, (15) years ago, was a media sensation where I met many of the real deal Activists and Politicians. I was very successful and found I had a real talent for certain artistic elements such as art and words.  My
original artwork with original words, (my thoughts) were displayed all over the Bay Area and in San Francisco.   Before then I was helping wholeheartedly to saving our Green areas thru activism and our whales and our water.  Today, I would like to bring your attention to: 

96 elephants.com.  Please take the time to pop it into your mind for a quick look.
  96 elephants are killed every day....

Please visit this site if you are against killing 96 elephants a day for their body parts. They are dying off on earth.

Haircolor Study Notes: 


What is the MOST DANGEROUS INGREDIENT IN NAIL POLISH? It used to be formaldehyde.  DO YOU KNOW?
it is called:   TOULENE   
 PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME THIS QUESTION:  

 NOW   
WHAT DOES THIS CHEMICAL INGREDIENT HAVE IN COMMON WITH PTD? 
(PTD is the chemical substitute  used in place of PPD),  PTD CONTAINS TOULENE.
PTD is TOXIC.  PTD IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU -   NOT BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH THAN PPD.  IT IS A SUPER CHEMICAL SOLVENT. 

 I HAVE BEEN USING IT, STUDYING IT AND TESTING PTD's for WELL OVER 15 YEARS.

That is one reason why you don't need to use PPD Free haircolor unless you are SPECIFICALLY ALLERGIC TO PPD.  OK.  More on that later.  In addition,

****PTD does not work as well as PPD because it is not as strong, therefore, the PPD Free HAIRCOLOR Simply does NOT LAST AS LONG as regular PPD containing haircolor.  

I have heard this opinion from several people and PROFESSIONAL STYLISTS TRAININED IN ITALY...THEY HAVE SAID  they don't use PPD Free, because PPD Free does not last as long and is not as versatile or as good in many respects.

My opinion from what I have observed:
You WOULD BE BETTER OFF GETTING A PPD HAIRCOLOR that is ammonia free,THAT IS SEMI PERMANENT, IT WILL BE THE SAME result as PPD Free, also it may even, cover grey hair better and last longer, color faster, be gentler than PPD Free haircolor.

I know alot of people who beleive this, they use AMONIA FREE,  PPD CONTAINING HAIRCOLOR, WITHOUT all the EXTRA COST.

ONE SUCH PRODUCT IS CALLED:  ARGAN OIL BRAND.  It lasts as long also because the gray hair starts to show anyway in a normal growth cycle in 2 weeks.  So they simply recolor when it shows in 3 to 4 weeks.  
PRICE $6.59 FOR 3 FLUID OUNCES. DEVELOPERS $2.94    I know many people who use THIS BRAND IN THE DARK COLORS, Level 1 up to level 5 and ACTUALLY HAVE ALLERGIES TO PPD,  they use the semi perm kind.  BUT ALWAYS, ALWAYS DO A PATCH TEST FIRST  before use on head  FOR ANY HAIRCOLOR BY THE WAY.
Here is some info on it:
 One 'n Only™ Argan Oil Permanent Color Cream is what hair color should be. Rich, brilliant colors, crafted in Italy, are infused with active levels of rare argan oil in a luxurious hydrating hair color formula. Colors are fade-resistant, vibrant, luminous, and true. Gray coverage is certified 100%. Condition is beyond expectation. Hair color with argan oil creates explosive shine, silky feel and a rich, soft texture that can't be denied. Easy to use, easy to formulate – with two applications in every tube. For gentle permanent hair color, choose One 'n Only™ Argan Oil Permanent Color Cream.


FOR SURE if you use PPD Haircolor, it WILL DEFINATELY LAST LONGER and COVER BETTER   EVEN AMMONIA FREE - PPD containing haircolor (PPD CONTAINING aka: regular haircolor), semi permanent or permanent haircolor..
both will last longer.

 BUT:    IN CASE YOU HAVE AN ALLERGY TO PPD,  


IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES to PPD: THERE ARE OVER 18 Brands available, many on the internet  on Amazon or Ebay EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL LINES they can be sold to non professionals, also non professional brands too.  Be aware PPD Free brands do not last as long - especially on gray hair, usually as PPD  and ammonia containing brands.  


GOT AN ALLERGY TO PPD,  One NEW brand you can also get on AMAZON  is called:
I.C.O.N.   BY: Ecotech.  In the form of a cream haircolor in a tube.  

Very reasonable in price and quality is good.
