The law as it is currently written allows virtually anything to be incorporated into a cosmetic. Stephen Sundlof
After every shower, I mix up a palmful of Weleda Calendula Baby Oil and Lotion and smooth it over my arms and legs. Ah, yes..we’ve been advised to do this, right? Directly after one’s ablutions, slather moisturizer on for maximum absorption...and hope for the best.
I decided to check out everything that I put on my body. (After all, I’ve sleuthed everything I put into my body.) I had a bad feeling about this. I was right.
I ended up (very quickly, I might add) at the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Database. I started searching away. I discovered that my trusty Weleda baby unguents posed a moderate hazard to my health. (As for the babes...has that ship sailed? I was going to write poor babes. Perhaps a bit too incendiary? Like...we’re lovingly wrapping our little ones, fresh from the bath, in a hazardous chemical? Um, the answer to that is, most likely, yes.)
(BTW, the EWG’s cosmetic safety score for Weleda’s Calendula Baby Oil and Lotion are 4 and 5 respectively....a score of between 3 and 6 is representative of a moderate hazard to the user. Hmm. Is there anything moderate about a hazard? I always thought that it was an all or nothing proposition.)
The good news.. and, I’d like to keep adding to the good news...
I’ve been using Rose Marie Swift's products for over year and I love them. Effortless and cool and minimal...in a good way.

First things first, right?
Driving around at seven in the morning, I don't really want to be wearing black out shades. I mean, I gotta see.
I've been wearing a pair of old Balmain sunglasses for this purpose.
They have absolutely nothing to say for themselves. (Tinted? Not so much. They do not protect my eyes from sun or wind or rain... or much of anything.)
They are divine. (I hope that I never sit on them.)
