This is a very special post for me and I would love if you can take the time to read through the CANSA Facts and the information provided. Hopefully this awareness can help someone, somewhere. As we should hopefully all know by now October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I really hope you ladies have booked or already gone for your annual mammograms?
As a beauty blog I feature a number of products and brands. Carcinogenic chemical ingredients can be found in many beauty products on the market and are a major contributor to breast cancer. I promise to be more vigilant with the products featured and ensure that they don’t include Phthalates (more on this nasty ingredient later in the post).
Africology together with CANSA approached me with the following information. This Breast Cancer Awareness month, Africology aims to “spread awareness of these toxic, endocrine-disrupting ingredients and chemicals with an overall wish for this to fuel change in the cosmetic industry at large.”
