"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by Dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become."
- Steve Jobs

Good Lord read these:



"The main lubricants in many moisturisers, conditioners and hand creams are liquid paraffin, propylene glycol and mineral oil. These by products of the petroleum industry are used in large numbers of cosmetics and toiletries due to the fact that they are very cheap. These petrochemicals can cause photosensitivity (i.e. can promote sun damage), and strip the natural oils from the skin causing chapping and dryness. They can also prevent the effective elimination of toxins from the skin, resulting in acne and other disorders.

Propylene glycol is a common ingredient in moisturisers, yet also used extensively in brake fluids and antifreeze products! This ingredient can result in sensitivity reactions and is the most widely used moisture carrying ingredient in cosmetics.

This ingredient has been found to be a neurotoxin by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (the Medical Post, 27 September 1994) and it has been recently been connected to contact dermatitis, kidney damage and liver abnormalities"

And so on. Throw out that Oil of Olay and Go Organic!!!
