Some things should be industrial strength, your mascara, however, is not one of them! Does your mascara contain carbon black? Look for sneaky ingredients like: D & C black No. 2, acetylene black, channel black, furnace black, lamp black, or thermal black. All of these are potentially linked to cancer and organ system toxicity. Why not take a step to avoid these ingredients? Search the @EWG website for a safer alternative or swap out your current Mascara for either of Beautycounter’s. Both are formulated without carbon black. It all starts with swapping one product at a time. Beautycounter’s best selling Volumizing Mascara is made with natural fibers.
