Makeup and Fertility


In a recent study done by EWG (Environmental Working Group), researchers found that makeup may actually interfere with a woman’s fertility.
 
The study looked at a group of girls between the ages of 14 and 19. Within the group, were girls who used makeup on a daily basis and others who did not. The results to their research are troublesome to say the least. Those girls who did wear makeup had the chemicals triclosan, musk, phthalates, and parabens present in their bodies. These chemicals are known to be harmful and can lead to medical problems such as depression, infertility and even cancer. The specific makeup products that contained the highest levels of these chemicals were eye shadow, foundation and mascara.  
 
So if your daughter is a makeup user, you may want to check with her doctor to make sure that the products she is using are safe to her skin and body!
