Be careful about ALL of your cosmetics

What goes on your skin, goes through your skin. Especially please steer clear of cosmetics containing shark-based squalene (look at your moisturizer and sunscreen in particular). There is virtually no disagreement globally about the vulnerable positions our oceans are in — from plastic pollution to chemical pollution to overexploitation from fishermen. Global fisheries are on the verge of collapse. According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, 80 percent of the world’s fisheries are now overexploited, fully exploited, depleted or recovering from overexploitation by fishermen. Live and shop consciously. We don’t need shark-based oil in our cosmetics!
