Because of this and the other reasons listed above, you can (and I think should) avoid cosmetics and other consumer goods containing talc.
In a previous blog post I wrote about Bare Minerals and how their BarePRO® Performance Wear Pressed Powder Foundation and BarePro® Contour Face-Shaping Powder Trio contain talc. Why did they do this?
I won’t use talc on my skin, so I can’t make products containing it either.
Remember that your skin is your body’s largest organ, so I strongly urge you to read your ingredient labels and avoid the talc! Your skin and body will thank you for it too!

Years ago, in what I sweetly refer to as BC (Before Children) I worked for a well known beauty brand at Bergdorf Goodman. Just down the street, on East 57th St, there was and still is J. Sisters, known for being the pioneers of the Brazilian Bikini Waxing in the United States.
And in those BC years, every 4-5 weeks I would schedule my appointment and 20-30 minutes later, after warm wax and fabric strip after strip, my bikini line was completely bare and silky smooth (sorry if this is TMI ;-).
This summer I made it my mission to find a more convenient and less expensive substitute... And I believe I did!
Wikipedia states"In the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world."
And so you would think that in this day and age that most cosmetic brands are cruelty-free… Well, think again... Many brands are cruelty-free in the USA but not around the world!!
There’s a saying... "People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing".
Think about it... More than anything else, this saying should apply to your beauty products!
When I shop online it frustrates me when a website or brand does not share the product’s ingredient listing! I find this A LOT with the big beauty brands and all I can think is "What are you hiding?
