“Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry” by Stacy Malkan

Stacy Malkan’s award-winning book, Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry (New Society 2007), “follows a group of breast cancer activists as they go knocking on the door of the world’s largest cosmetics companies to ask them to stop using chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects.

As doors slammed in their faces, the beauty myth peeled away and the industry’s toxic secrets began to emerge. The good news is that while the big corporations fight for their right to use hazardous chemicals, new companies are innovating safer products and a national movement is building to give the beauty industry a makeover” ( from http://movethemarket.org/)
