OK so I did a little research on Mary Kay products and they use at least six chemicals that are considered toxic or rated low to medium danger to your health. One being Paraben.

So I sent a message to my consultant told her my finding and that I am allergic to paraben. That I would not be able to buy or use any products unless I have a full list of all ingredients and if they make any non toxic and paraben products.

She sent a message back with a long drawn out lecture that they do not use any harmful chemicals in their products and that paraben was not toxic and if I wanted to be removed off her mail list...

I was like WTF? Seriously?

Why don't you just make your own or go without, then? I make our stuff here at my house. I also sell the stuff to friends and family.

I dont mind supporting companies that are honest and care, but there was no need for her to be so damn defensive and in denial about it.

I think so too. I read that the US doesn't have strict guidelines on what chemicals can be in makeup. Surprise, surprise. It might be better to look into makeup made in Europe.

I sell Mary Kay.

There is a new product out that may not contain it , however, I am not certain.

I will be more than happy to get you a complete list of ingredients if you want.

I'm sorry your consultant was crazy.

Well that's useless. Why wouldn't she try to be helpful and get you that list? Maybe she still could have made a sale, if not for you then gifts for people you aren't super fond of.

I know! I realize people are aware or not aware of the toxins used and still use it anyhow. The point I was telling her was I have to read the FULL ingredient to confirm it is paraben free! Then she went off on me..... damn
