Nneka Leiba, the vice president of healthy living science at the Environmental Working Group (EWG), talks about clean, nontoxic beauty and the shocking truth behind the largely unregulated beauty and personal-care industry. Leiba and her team assess the health effects of chemical exposure from day-to-day products—and what she tells us is both grim and galvanizing. A few of the topics we go into: why black girls go through puberty much earlier than girls of other races, the most important beauty product to go clean with, why spray sunscreen is a real problem, and much more. If you’ve ever remotely considered going clean with your beauty routine, if you’ve ever wondered why companies would use known toxic ingredients in their products, or if you just want to understand the facts around this issue, this episode is really going to make you think. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)
What’s the secret to the world’s glowiest skin? Why use clean, nontoxic personal-care products? (And what’s the easiest way to make the shift?) Can lasers and injectables really make a person look better? What skin-care tips and hair ideas are worthwhile? What does it mean to look and feel pretty or sexy or even beautiful? And can we—should we—try to sustain that as we get older? When it comes to beauty, there are 70 billion questions. On The Beauty Closet, the newest podcast from goop, editors Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill are going to answer as many of them as they can. They’ll have help from top makeup artists, dermatologists, cleanbeauty founders, researchers, plastic surgeons, hairstylists, and of course their boss, Gwyneth Paltrow.
