LEAD IN LIPSTICK?

"1,4 dioxane in baby soap? Coal tar in shampoo? How is this possible? Simple. The $35 billion cosmetics industry is so powerful they have kept themselves unregulated for decades.

In 2000, the US Centers for Disease Control reported American women had a higher "body burden" of phthalates, a set of industrial chemicals linked to birth defects and infertility. Suspicions about repeated exposure to the chemicals from cosmetics unearthed some disturbing discoveries." (from the book, Not Just a Pretty Face by Stacy Malkan)

Is it just my imagination or do more women suffer from autoimmune diseases such as, Fibromyalgia and immune dysfunction syndromes such as, Chronic Fatigue? How about the epidemic of autism and ADD/ADHD in our children? Men--have you checked your shaving cream lately...? Does it contain PROPANE?! Yes--PROPANE! Many of them do. Following are some signs of a toxic body:

Fatigue / lack of energy
Overweight / underweight
Digestive problems (gas, ulcers, heartburn, IBS)
Irregularity (constipation / diarrhea)
Cravings or addictions
Headaches
Mood swings, anxiety, depression, irritability
Allergies, hayfever, asthma
Low resistance to illness and infection
Skin disorders
Smoking


Wake up America--"the skin is the largest organ in the body with the capability to absorb everything, so how is it possible that our skin products continue to go unregulated by the FDA? Shame on them for neglecting the American people in this way." --Fran Drescher, actress, author and cancer survivor

I JUST FOUND OUT...

...that Stacy Malkan, author of, Not Just a Pretty Face, and lead media strategist for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and communications director of Health Care Without Harm—will be attending XanGo's Overdrive 2008 National Convention, following it up with a 12–city post-Convention tour! This is GREAT news. If you have not read Stacy's book--YOU MUST, it should also be required reading for all teenagers, female and male. She goes into great detail about the ugly side of the beauty industry. Here is what Horst Rechelbacher, founder and former owner of Aveda says about Stacy's book: "A must read for everyone. Writing this book at this time is most important. If we as a human race are not waking up to the realities within our biological systems, we humans are next on the endangered species list. Thank you Stacy for this most important investigation into the hidden dangers of everyday personal care."

In Preparation for XanGo Convention

I'm sitting here reading more studies on the mangosteen fruit and the benefits to our skin! This will be the most exciting skin care product to hit the market in many, many years. I feel so blessed to be able to share this with my friends, family and future customers. Aestheticians will want this, Plastic Surgeons will want this, Dermatologists will want this, EVERYBODY will eventually see the value of Glimpse's clean, green, pure ingredients and will be converted. It's NUTRITION for your SKIN! Martha, my daughter-in-law, who is a Master Aesthetician brought a bottle of Cetaphil to me and we were shocked at the ingredients!! Almost every ingredient listed on that bottle is an ingredient that is considered toxic!! And Dermatologists recommend this on a daily basis--even for children!! Scary.
