“’This report makes clear the lack of safer alternatives for Black women,’ said Jamie McConnell, director of programs and policy for Women’s Voices for the Earth. “Demand for these products is increasing and the cosmetics industry needs to provide healthy beauty options for Black women.’ Some of the ingredients found in the products evaluated have been linked to serious health impacts like cancer, hormone disruption, reproductive and developmental damage, and allergies.”
These products are horrible. We should boycott them and write to the manufactures and let them know that we refuse to compromise our health by using their products.
We should protest with our dollars and our voices.
