The Story of Cosmetics

It’s finally here—the much anticipated, latest video from The Story of Stuff pioneer Annie Leonard, The Story of Cosmetics! In conjunction with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, The Story of Cosmetics tells the tale of the toxins in our personal care products—from shampoos to sun block to baby products. It also explains the damage that these ingredients cause—not just the health effects like cancer and reproductive problems in the people who use them, but also to the environment and the people who produce them. Like The Story of Stuff, this film is very brief and portrayed in the same entertaining, animated way.
