We all know that it's important to read the labels of everything in our lives—particularly the foods that we eat (even the food our dogs and kitties eat!). But did you know that it's also really important to read the labels on our beauty products? Of course you did. But did you also know that the little symbols on the labels are also really, really important?
When Indie Lee, a "happy-go-lucky New Yorker," was diagnosed with a brain tumor likely caused by environmental causes, she decided to make it her life's mission to create awareness to the potential dangers of the common beauty products that we might use. She designed her own line of safe, eco-friendly beauty products as a step towards "combining style and sustainability without sacrifice."
Aside from reading labels and buying more conscious products, Refinery29 just upped the beauty/health game when they created a handy list of the symbols found on beauty products. When thought of as "emojis," it's easy to remember what each symbol stands for. But what do they all mean? Why is there a little cartoon bunny on my bottle of concealer?
Head over to R29 to get the scoop. While these aren't emojis from your bestie, these emojis may just be your key to practicing safe beauty practices. Clever, eh? We think so, too!
