What's in Your Lipstick? You would be Shocked!

Many popular brands of lipstick carry lead. Do we really need lead in our lipsticks?

Safe Cosmetics 

Do you know that there are toxins and unsafe chemicals in the cosmetics and skin care products that we use every day? Ava Anderson Non-Toxic can inform you of the dangers and at the same time offer you a safe solution. After months of research and work with formulators from several leading cosmetics manufacturers, founder Ava Anderson launched a line of cosmetics and skin care that contains none of the harmful chemicals she warns you about.

You will be shocked at the ingredients in your products and your children’s products!

Its very easy to look up your products at You will see an overall hazard score from 0 to 10. Then, be sure to click on the product to see the disease implications of your ingredients.  Even “natural,” “organic,” “pure,” “dermatology tested” and “Dr, recommended” products, and those with a low to moderate hazard score can contain nasty ingredients- parabens, PEGs, PPGs, triclosan, 1,4 dioxane, ‘s, formaldehyde, SLS, and hundreds of others. Consider the “body burden” of a lifetime of exposure to the toxic ingredients in these products.

The Ava Anderson Non-Toxic solution 

Non-Toxic Lipsticks, lipgloss, and chapsticks!


NO parabens¸ NO PEGs or SLS, NO synthetic “fragrance” (manufacturers can hide up to 600 ingredients in this “ingredient” without listing it on the label!)  and No hidden ingredients or contaminants - NO phthalates, No nitrosamines, NO formaldehyde.
“While Americans are regularly exposed to toxic chemicals in their everyday consumer products - from plastic softeners that can contribute to sexual malformations to cosmetics additives that can cause cancer - much of the world is following the European Union’s lead in adopting stricter safety standards. Contrary to the PR coming from corporate headquarters, business is no less profitable in Europe as a result of high standards - in fact, business is often better, when consumers are confident of product safety. The result of this global double standard: U.S. businesses lose ground to international competitors while U.S. citizens are exposed to an ever growing list of toxic chemicals. A win-win solution for business and consumers is there for the taking, but who will lead the fight?”
