Protect yourself from cancer causing makeup

A leading UK breast cancer charity has warned that levels of endocrine disrupting chemicals contained in popular beauty products may increase women's risk of developing the disease. And the chemicals being highlighted by Breast Cancer UK appear in the ingredients on everything from Nivea moisturisers and Maybelline mascaras to Essie nail polish.

Endocrine disrupting chemicals are mostly manmade and have been linked with increased rates of breast cancer, according to the World Health Organisation. Exposure can occur through the skin or be passed on by pregnant women to their unborn children.
