Toxic Beauty

January 28 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Co-Presented with Green Inside and Out

Sponsored by Dr. Bronner’s, Mad Hippie, Superbee, and Gabriel Cosmetics
$16 Public | $10 Members


“Toxic Beauty” reveals the truth about harmful health consequences of chemicals found in everyday beauty products, the huge corporations that knowingly use them and the lack of governmental regulations to protect consumers.


Each morning we spritz and slather ourselves in over 100 different chemicals – yet the cosmetics and personal care industry in North America is not required to prove an ingredient is safe for human health before it is on the shelves. So when we run a bath, lather cream for a shave, apply our makeup or deodorize our underarms, we could be exposing our bodies to myriad toxic chemicals. Hormonal disruption in baby boys, developmental delays, ADHD, low sperm count in men – the cosmetic industry isn’t pretty. “Toxic Beauty” is a documentary feature that follows the class action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson and the plaintiffs; people fighting for justice in a race against time.


This Screening will be followed by an action-oriented fundraising activity benefitting the nonprofit Green Inside and Out, preceded by a panel discussion regarding the Toxic Free Cosmetics Act, featuring:
