helpful site for reviewing skin/cosmetic products

Stay-At-Home-Mom would like to pass along a great link for anyone concerned with the toxicity of everyday skin care products and cosmetics. The Skin Deep database is a safety guide to cosmetics and personal care products brought to you by researchers at the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit organization.

According to their site, "Skin Deep pairs ingredients in nearly 25,000 products against 50 definitive toxicity and regulatory databases, making it the largest integrated data resource of its kind."

This isn't exactly a resource specific to single-income families, but the information contained in this database will definitely help you evaluate whether or not you should be using certain products, which could save you money.
