Ugly Beauty

Yeah, I’m as bad as the next woman about this, vain cow that I am. Not that I have time to do much more than try to pat away the dark circles while hopping on one foot, trying to find my other shoe while simultaneously disentangling my legs from two clinging little rug rats as I desperately try to get out the door for work… But hey, can’t a girl wear a little concealer and lip gloss without suffering toxic poisoning??

This revealing book recounts the formative years of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, including a chapter on Environmental Working Group’s Jane Houlihan and the development of Skin Deep, our cosmetics safety database.
