In March, our friend Jamie Ervin at Eco Child’s Play, a website geared toward “Green Parenting for Non-Toxic, Healthy Homes”, was kind enough to blog about our Eco-Easy Nail Polish Remover. We are proud to say that it got rave reviews! According to Jamie, “Finding a less toxic (less odorific) polish has been a huge challenge in our house…I’m very excited to have found this line of Cause-Metics, now I can feel even better about having pretty fingers and toes.”
We LOVE hearing that moms are enjoying our “cause-metics” while keeping their little beauties toxic-free. We feel that it’s important to not only spread the message of love to our young lovelies, but to teach them to be socially conscious about their beauty choices. According to market research firm Experian, 43 percent of 6 to 9 year olds are already using lipstick or lip gloss; 38 percent use hairstyling products, and 12 percent use other cosmetics. This statistic is astounding and it means that we have many chances to educate girls to think about where their lipsticks, lip glosses, and nail polish come from and how they can benefit others.
While talking about role models, it’s also important that girls and women realize their self-worth. Recently, author and doctor, Cheryl Saban was featured on “The View” and “The Today Show,” talking about her new book, What is Your Self-Worth; A Women’s Guide to Validation. In the words of Dr. Saban, “My mission is to make a difference in women’s lives. To inspire women to understand, grasp, actualize, and vocalize their worth; negotiate a better deal for themselves; take more responsibility for themselves; and to spread this message to our youth.” We could not agree more with Dr. Saban and hope that women around the world can identify their core of self-worth and help spread the message of Peace and Love to everyone in their lives.
