A new episode from the The Story of Stuff Project. This time host Annie Leonard tells The Story of Cosmetics. The story, released today, examines the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo.

Produced by the Free Range Studios the seven-minute film reveals the implications for consumer and worker health and the environment, and outlines ways we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and towards safer alternatives. The film concludes with a call for viewers to support legislation aimed at ensuring the safety of cosmetics and personal care products.
