Beauty and biodiesel: Weleda’s “Honestly Natural, Truly Beautiful” tour is in San Francisco
Thursday, 21 October 2010
Seriously. Stop putting harmful crap on your face. The E.U. now bans more than 1,100 chemicals from personal care because they may cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm. Just 10 ingredients are banned from cosmetics in the U.S…Wait, what? With that statement, that’s where the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics begins and potentially harmful ingredients in our beauty products end – and Weleda is here to ensure that the word gets out before the going gets ugly. Like really mutant, disgusting ugly.
Weleda, the pioneers of natural skin care since 1921, is continuing their “Honestly Natural, Truly Beautiful” national mobile tour in San Francisco, educating onlookers about natural products, thoughtful consumer purchasing, cosmetics ingredients. Weleda has teamed up with Campaign for Safe Cosmetics because with the mutual initiative to eliminate potentially harmful chemicals from the products we apply to ourselves and to our families every day. Through the “Honestly Natural, Truly Beautiful” Tour, Weleda is helping raise awareness of the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010.
Safe and effective beauty products from natural ingredients are available. Now, it is only a matter of giving them a fair chance in the world of celebrity endorsements and powerhouse cosmetic labels. And with words like “defects” and “cancer,” why wouldn’t you want to give these natural products a try? Weleda products are 100% certified-natural, made from plants, fruits, nuts and seeds. Ingredients are wild-crafted, organic or biodynamic whenever possible, and never grown with any pesticides or chemicals.
From Thursday, 10/21 – Saturday, 10/23 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m Stop by Weleda’s biodiesel truck at one of three locations in San Francisco to take a natural beauty ingredient quiz, learn the importance of natural products and receive a mini-spa treatment courtesy of Weleda, and take home a free sample and a coupon.
