Toxic Beauty | Amazon Prime (2019)
This documentary by Canadian Phyllis Ellis does an outstanding job of showing the frightening lack of regulation of personal products people use everyday, especially women. These products are unleased onto an unsuspecting marketplace with untested or barely tested additives that are potentially harmful with carcinogenic compounds they place all over their faces, hair and skin.
It also reviews the research behind the toxic chemicals that interfere with the body's natural hormones, namely parabens (a class of preservatives) and phthalates (plasticizers commonly found in fragrances) while it follows the personal lives of women who are fighting for justice.
Toxic Beauty might be a documentary about the unseen killers lurking personal products, but it also can be viewed a hopeful message for change.
