Not Just a Pretty Face - Book
Stacy Malkan's book Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry (New Society Publishers, October 2007) exposes the ugly side of the beauty industry. Lead in lipstick? 1,4-Dioxane in baby shampoo? How is this possible? Simple. The $50 billion cosmetics industry is so powerful, they've kept themselves unregulated for decades. The book follows a group of environmental activists as they knock on the doors of the world's largest cosmetics companies to ask some tough questions. All profits from sales of the book are donated to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
