“Taking joy in living is a woman’s best cosmetic.”
— Rosalind Russell

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”
—J. Muir

You can hear this show on Podcast on Radio under “Conscious Lifestyles.”

My guest, Susie Wang, the founder of 100% Pure Cosmetics, explains how her amazing, organic, totally naturally healthy cosmetics are the ONLY cosmetics in the world made with 100% fruit and vegetables for their pigments.

100% Pure Cosmetics is the world’s only pure cosmetics company that holds the patent for using fruit and vegetable pigments that are 100% naturally derived and has NOTHING that is synthesized.

Susie Wang is so pure in her formulations that she also refused to use minerals in her formulations because she believes that many minerals are also questionable in their toxicity.

The result is a delicious blend of yummy cosmetics and body products…. When you wear the Strawberry blush it actually has a beautiful Strawberry scent! The lusciousness of her beautiful blends keep you coming back for more!

This beautiful company is both eco-friendly for the planet and for your face/body…. and the added benefit is they also have a charity to help rescue animals! How cool to support a company that is 100% in every aspect of life!

You have GOT to try this beautiful skin care, body care, and pure cosmetics!

A special note to my radio listeners and blog readers:

I am currently in the process of getting all of my previous shows onto my web page: and this will be up and running within the next week….

Thanks for following my Eco/Organic Living radio show that gives practical tips on how to help to save our planet, and how to achieve true health for yourself, your family, your beloved animal children, in our food sources and choices, and as a consumer for green building, dental materials, eco-minded landscaping, and everything related to living your life on this earth!

It’s fun to be an eco-friendly consumer!

Starting with your body and understanding how to read labels is one of the most gratifying and important steps you can take to saving your own life and to saving our earth. Vote with your consumer choices….

Some very toxic, dangerous ingredients to watch out for [Don’t buy any product– even if it is labeled ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ — that has these toxic ingredients]:

1.) Anything with the letters: “PEG” and a number after the letters! Susie Wang explained on the show that this hazardous chemical melted a lab table when she was working for a large, corporate cosmetics manufacturer! The question is WHY are they putting this neuro-toxin into commercially produced cosmetics, creams, and potions?

2.) Propylene Glycol [found in MANY creams, shampoos, etc.] VERY TOXIC.

3.) Phthalates [plasticizers]

4.) Petrolatum [“think” Vaseline!– Petroleum is found in MOST commercially manufactured body care and even home cleaning products…. buyer beware.]

5.) Butyl Acetate [Primarily found in nail polish.]

6.) Butylated Hydroxytoluene [Found in everything toxically made because it slows down the rate at which the product will change color.]

7.) Coal Tar [used as a toxic softener and promotes the dissolution of rough skin– but extremely damaging to your immune and nervous system.] This is also common in hair dyes. Don’t buy it.

8.) Cocamide DEA/Lauramide DEA [used as a foaming agent in shampoos and bath products, and as an emulsifying agent in cosmetics.] Don’t buy it.

9.) Diazolidinyl Urea [formaldehyde-releasing, anti-microbial preservative.] Linked to significant health issues and very dangerous as it is found in many, many products. Don’t buy it.

10.) Ethyl Acetate [Solvent] Skin irritant. Found in Nail polish products, mascara, tooth whitening, and many products. Don’t buy it.

11.) Formaldehyde [Disinfectant, germicide, fungicide, preservative.] In Deodorants, nail polish, soap, shampoo, shaving cream, household paints and cleaners that are mass-produced. ONLY buy products that are organically, small-batch made!

12.) Parabens [methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl— widely used as a cheap preservative to save manufacturing costs. Inhibits growth of bacteria.]
Present in mass-produced products and you MUST read labels. Can be found in moisturizers, shampoos, conditioners, hair styling gels, nail creams, makeup, skin lotions, deodorants, baby skin items, and too many products to name here. Don’t buy it.

12.) Sodium Laureth/Sodium Laurel Sulfate [Penetration enhancer.] Used in shampoos, conditioners, bar soap, body wash, face cleanser, liquid hand soap, acne treatment, hair dye, mascara, shaving products, moisturizer, toothpaste, sunscreen, makeup remover, and all commercially produced products that are toxic to your health. Be careful to read labels, as some “natural” or “organic” labels sneak this into their list of ingredients, too! The health concern is that it alters skin structure, and allows other toxic chemicals in the formulation to get into your blood stream. Don’t buy it.

13.) Talc [Absorbs moisture, and totally toxic to your body and linked to cancer in a big, BIG way.] Found in blush, powder products, eyeshadow, baby powder, deodorant, soap. A PROVEN carcinogen. Talc also also has air-born particles that are similar to Asbestos particles and studies have shown it can cause tumors in the lungs and Asthma. Don’t buy it.

14.) Toluene [Solvent to improve adhesion and gloss.] In nail polish, hair dye, colored cosmetics, and household paints. Causes a whole array toxicity in the body and the environment and has been found to cause Liver damage, and birth defects along with respiratory distress. Don’t buy it.

15.) Triethanolamine [A coating ingredient for fresh fruits and also used as a dispersing ingredient in hand and body lotions, shaving creams, soaps, shampoo, and bath powders. This toxic ingredient can
form carcinogenic compounds called “nitrosamines” when put onto skin and is one of the most dangerous cancer causing ingredients found in skin and household care today. Unbelievable that this is allowed to be manufactured into skin care products. Don’t buy it.

The sad truth is that ALL skin care and makeup products are NOT regulated or even remotely watched over by anyone.

You as the consumer can create the change that we need by making yourself and everyone you know AWARE of these ingredients in mass-produced products that are highly advertised…. read labels, and DON’T BUY IT [and even write a letter to the manufacturer explaining why you will refuse to buy anything they make until they clean up their act!]

Your voice and your MONEY CHOICES will bring the safe cosmetics that we all deserve to the mass market.

Until this happens, there are a good handful of companies, like 100% Pure Cosmetics, that are way ahead of the curve and actually CARE about your body, your health, the environment, and make BETTER PERFORMING cosmetics and body care products to boot!

So make the change to HEALTH and true wellness! It’s fun, easy, and sooooo beautiful! You won’t ever go back to the chemical cosmetics….

In fact, when I learned the truth, I put on a mask and gloves and carefully emptied all of my toxic cosmetics and recycled the plastic/glass jars after washing them in non-toxic, healthy earth dish soap!

Go green in your cosmetics, and you will experience the wonderful metamorphasis into a Natural Beauty, a Healthy Beauty, and a True Beauty on the inside and on the outside!

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
