There are so many toxins in most beauty products its scary. Check out the latest beauty ingredient that has been added to the "DO NOT FOOL WITH" list. 

Aminomethyl Propanol
This active ingredient is found is a pH adjuster that is generally considered safe at levels of concentrations below 2%. Unfortunately, many hair products, especially those that require a strong pH adjuster like straighteners or hair color, as concentrations well above 12% which is considered to be highly toxic and potentially carcinogenic.

Toxin free beauty is hard. Our goal is not to scare you...but inform you and give you an easy, trustworthy place to purchase toxin free beauty products that actually work for women of color. Stay safe chicas. Stay informed. Most importantly....stay VAiN ;-)
