7 Places Where You Can Get Organic & Natural Makeup in Singapore

Mother's Day is around the corner! It is tough choosing a gift for the best mother in the whole wide world, but I do know she only deserves the best. So I was thinking I should share about natural and organic makeup and skincare that really takes care of her skin, looks AND well-being.

So anyway I was shopping around for natural cosmetics and skin care (cos it is a sure-fire well-received gift) and came across many stores that offer such skin care. What a difference than 5 years ago when I think I was the only person who demanded organic skin care and had to shop on international websites that ship to Singapore for an exorbitant fee.

Do you know…

    The average adult uses 9 personal care products each day, with 126 unique chemical ingredients.
    One of every 24 women are exposed daily to personal care product ingredients that are known or probable reproductive and developmental toxins, linked to impaired fertility or developmental harm for a baby in the womb or a child.
    Less than 1% of products in the USA are made from ingredients that have all been assessed for safety.

“As much as 60% of topical skin-care products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream,” Says Dr. Nancy Lonsdrof, M.D. an lowa-based physician, “They should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal.” – April 2006 issue of Women's Health Magazine. There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders. 100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.
