Airdrie, Alberta Canada (PressExposure) April 13, 2011 -- Local author, Tamara Laschinsky, has released her latest book titled, "The Cosmetic Chemicals Guide: What You Need to Know Before You Buy." The book looks at common chemicals in cosmetic and personal care products and provides readers with a better understanding of what to look for when shopping for beauty and personal care products.
'The Cosmetic Chemicals Guide: What You Need to Know Before You Buy', was inspired by Tamara's business, Natural e GREEN. It focuses on the main chemicals found in today's cosmetics and personal care products and shows readers how they can identify these chemicals when reading labels. Tamara indicates that many chemicals go under different names and her book acts as a quick-reference guide by listing alternate names for chemicals as well.
Consumers interested in avoiding chemicals and seeking non-toxic products will find The Cosmetic Chemicals Guide, a very good resource, as it is designed to fit easily into a purse for quick-reference when shopping. The book also lists the health risks of common chemicals as well as gives readers some information on what governments allow these chemicals and what chemicals have been banned by other governments.
With chemicals such as parabens and formaldehyde gaining international media exposure and causing consumers to get concerned, this book comes at a good time to help promote healthier choices.
Says Tamara, " I opened my store to help consumers shop for the products they needed, without them having to worry about chemicals in those products. Many manufacturers 'green wash' their products, which means they make them look safe and natural and yet, there are still many toxic chemicals in the product they sell. I wrote this book based on the many questions my customers were asking me, mainly how they can tell if something is safe or not?"
Tamara lives with her family in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. A healthy future for her children and their environment is important to her and something she helps other parents learn so they too, can help their children learn to make safer choices.
The Cosmetic Chemicals Guide: What You Need to Know is available in both paperback and e-book versions and can be bought directly from Natural e GREEN and on Amazon.
