Have We Been Lied to By the Beauty and Medical Industry?

Have We Been Lied to By the Beauty and Medical Industry?

Lies. I hate them. And they are everywhere. Being spread by Big pharma, Big food, Big Dental and now Big cosmo. Unethical lies that cause unsuspecting good people to believe things that are detrimental to your health. Maximizing their profits at the risk of people’s lives.

This is serious business.

And while you may have heard of Big pharma and Big food, Big Dental - but what is Big Cosmo? This is what I call the beauty industry. Because I’m sorry to tell you, they have been lying to you too. The deceptions, promises and toxins that were sold to you (unbeknownst to you) in your “natural” skincare and makeup  - it’s a thriving industry of lies. And it is still happening.  

And that’s why I want to blow the cover off Big cosmo. I want you to be educated and aware of these deceptive tricks and hidden toxins in your beauty products so that you can know what to look for so you can trust what you are putting on your skin and in your mouth.

I’m a mom, a wife, a nurse, and a truth seeker. And I’m exposing all the lies and deceptions so you can know when you are being lied to and easily spot the IMPOSTERS. I am fed up with the Health and Beauty industry making us SICK, UGLY, AND DEPRESSED!

We need healthy options!  How can we get healthier if we are slathering our skin and mouth with toxins that cause disease? Case in point - walk into any drugstore and pick up any tube of conventional toothpaste and read the ingredients. Let’s take for example, Colgate’s ENAMEL HEALTH whitening toothpaste. 

You THINK you are buying a whitening toothpaste that will help keep your teeth strong…but what you are really buying is GUM DISEASE, CAVITIES, AND HEALTH ISSUES! Companies like Colgate KNOW the average consumer does not read labels, and of the small percentage that does, most do not know what the ingredients mean or do. They BANK (huge) on that!

This is what I discovered…WARNING: this is real life, and it is true.  Do not read more if you do not want to know the truth.  Trust me - this will make you mad.

For a closeup, Colgate Enamel Health ingredients: FLUORIDE, water, sorbitol, hydrated silica, GLYCERIN, PEG-12, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE, FLAVOR, MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE, zinc phosphate, cellulose gum, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, SODIUM SACCHARIN, xanthan gum, MICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE.

Fluoride is NOT a mineral your teeth needs and when you were born, there was no fluoride in your body. Enamel needs minerals like calcium… and there is no calcium in this product.

***Worse, this toothpaste like many others including natural toothpastes, contains GLYCERIN.

Glycerin puts a coating over your enamel and PREVENTS minerals from your diet and saliva to get in the enamel! If you see glycerin in your toothpaste, it is creating cavities. All the harsh ingredients listed in this product are causing gum disease and cavities.

Buyer beware. As a consumer, you have the right for HEALTHY OPTIONS. 


  • Read the labels! Always read the labels and if you see words like: fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, carrageenan, propylene glycol, triclosan, parabens, phthalates - RUN.
  • Don’t be fooled by scammy marketing claims. If a product is promising a magical transformation, look to see if the ingredients can back that up (I promise, they won’t!)
  • If a product says “natural” or “organic”, don’t take it at face value. The only guarantee that a product is natural or organic is a certification logo. And products that say “natural” can still by law, have chemicals in them.

The second step is to know how to spot good natural products that actually work…


  1. It truly is natural - that means no chemicals AT ALL.
  2. The ingredients support the claims the product is making. 

That’s it. 

That’s why you’ll see that all of the ingredients of my nurse-formulated Dirty Mouth Toothpowder are a blend of THREE mineral-rich, alkalizing clays (bentonite, kaolin, French green) with baking soda and essential oils.

So now you know. The beauty industry is lying to you. Now what?

We can’t change Big Cosmo, but what we CAN do is change the way we shop. We CAN become more informed about what we’re buying, why we’re buying it, and the impact it will have on our health and our planet. And we CAN help those we care about become educated too.

I know you’re reading this because you’re a truth seeker too. A rebel with a cause. And you want what is best for you and your family. Have no fear - your own personal clean beauty nurse is here to help inform and educate you to load you with all of the information you need to make proactive buying decisions that will help you improve your health and wellness.

So, keep reading these blogs (they are loaded!) and do me a favor, share what you learned with your friends and family! Because no one should be caught up in the lies of Big cosmo.
