Trojan Horse

via The Campaign For Safe Cosmetics  A Victory! We did it!  Together, we’ve made Congress pay attention to the need to overhaul our broken 70 year old cosmetics laws.   Our team has beaten back attempts by the cosmetics industry to fast-track legislation that would allow the big cosmetics companies to write their own rules with a rubber stamp from the FDA — for now. Not only has Congress held the first hearing on cosmetics safety in 30 years, it also decided not to attach the industry cosmetics bill to a fast-moving must-pass FDA-related bill—all thanks to letters sent by thousands of supporters like you demanding that any cosmetics safety bill must lead to meaningful reform that protects consumers, workers and your right to know what’s in the products you use. This is a real victory and a HUGE thanks goes out to all of you who wrote letters, blogged, called and helped spread the word!  Tell Congress to Stop Industry's Trojan Horse Bill We need your help to beat back a n

Honey, Honey

Partial excerpt from American Spa Magazine . For at least the last 10,000 years, humans have been hunting for and collecting honey —a sticky, sweet food made from flower nectar by honeybees. Once they had developed a taste for the stuff and no longer wanted to track it down, our ancient ancestors learned to produce honey using bees kept in relative captivity. Today, honey is made and consumed all over the world. But honey isn't just for sweetening tea and biscuits. Women have been slathering it on their skin for thousands of years, too. Cleopatra was known for her milk and honey baths, while Poppaea Sabina, wife of Emperor Nero, concocted a milk and honey lotion that was said to keep her complexion looking flawless. In more modern times, honey can be found in moisturizers, cleansers, masks, and scrubs, all of which can help make your skin that radiant, soft, and smooth. First, let's look at a few fun facts about how honey is made. Bees collect nectar from flowers
