Why Marilyn Would Shop at Elements of Carytown


According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, “More than 1 in 5 personal care products contain chemicals linked to cancer, 80 percent contain ingredients that commonly contain hazardous impurities, and 56 percent contain penetration enhancers that help deliver ingredients deeper into the skin.”
It may just be a little bit here and a little bit there, but all the chemicals add up, especially when you think of all those layers you’re putting on your body: wash, lotions, facial cleanser, moisturizer, toner, primer, foundation, lipstick…

It makes you think twice about your morning beauty routine.

Sorting though all the cosmetics in the store can be tricky, some products claim they are “natural” but still contain harsh chemicals.  Thankfully, the wonderful women at Elements of Carytown  are passionate about safe, effective and luxurious skincare.   In fact, if they wouldn’t wear it, they won’t sell it.
