Quotes by William James

“Compared to what we ought to be, we are only half awake. We are making use of only a small part of our mental and physical resources. ”





“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.”





“It is a common habit to blame life upon the environment. Environment modifies life but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings.”







“We never fully grasp the import of any true statement until we have a clear notion of what the opposite untrue statement would be.”





“The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.”

Safe Cosmetics

Hi everyone!

Be careful in choosing your cosmetics.

Some lists of dangerous chemicals in cosmetics:

  1. Fragrance (concerns: neurotoxicity, allergies, etc.)
  2. Paraben ( cosmetics containing this actually violate the safety guidelines in U.S., E.U., Japan and Canada. Concerns: organ sytem toxicity, irritation, etc )
  3. Aluminum Powder (concerns: cancer, development/reproductive toxicity, allergies, etc)
  4. BHA ( cosmetics containing this actually violate the safety guidelines in U.S., E.U., Japan and Canada. Concerns: cancer, biochemical or cellular level changes, etc)
  5. BHT (Concerns: cancer, endocrine disruption, immunotoxicity, etc)

Go check this website – it gives pretty comprehensive reviews on almost all of the cosmetics (make-up, skin care, eye care, hair care, oral care, nail care, baby care, and fragrance.)
