Ditch & Switch – Lipstick

There’s so much excitement this week as my favorite company (and the only truly toxin free, high performing, and eco-friendly company) launched its ✨𝙉𝙀𝙒✨ Everluxe Lip Crayons yesterday, so I figured a super fun Ditch & Switch post was in order!!

I have read that women can end up eating a few pounds of lipstick over their lifetime. 🥴

That’s pretty scary when you think about how lip products typically contain some ugly ingredient offenders like…

❌ Petroleum

❌ Synthetic Fragrances/Flavors

❌ Mineral Oil

❌ Phenoxyethanol

❌ Parabens

❌ BHT

❌ Artificial Dyes

❌ Heavy Metals (alongside mineral pigments)

All of theses have links to being cancer causing carcinogens, endocrine disrupters, or organ system toxicants 👎🏼

I’m beyond grateful to have SAFE, high performance, and eco-friendly options to share!

to decorate or not to decorate?

One of my favorite holiday family traditions has always been decorating my mom’s Christmas cookies with the family. We just did this today in fact! 😅 What I don’t love now that I know better… decorating those cookies, that we’re obviously going to eat, with a dose of chemicals derived from petroleum.

Fifteen million pounds of food dye is used every year in the U.S. which is a 5X increase within the past 60 years.

Guys, these dyes are made from the same petroleum that fuels our vehicles…

think about that.

This is exactly why I often talk about voting with your dollars. Why are we still buying this crap??

So, not only are these dyes made in a lab with chemicals derived from petroleum (which also happens to be used in gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt, and tar), they’ve also been linked to long-term health problems including cancer. Food products containing artificial dye are actually required to have a warning label in the U.K. These dyes have also been shown to increase hyperactivity in children. In fact I have heard several moms who have had children with ADHD be completely “cured” just by cutting out synthetic food dyes completely.

You bet your bottom dollar I brought our toxin free food coloring to Christmas cookie decorating this year. I see absolutely no reason to feed this stuff to Addie when there are safe options I can use instead!
