We are huge fans of safemama.com and it’s one of the blogs that I read on a daily basis. Recently the site bought to my attention a trailer for a new documentary called Unacceptable Levels which I must share with you.

If you are a regular reader of the Alison Claire blog you will know how passionate we are about making our natural beauty products with no harmful or synthetic ingredients. So the Unacceptable Levels documentary is right up my street!

Ed Brown and his wife Lauren have spent 3 years of their lives creating the film Unacceptable Levels after they discovered that it’s legal for cosmetic manufacturers among others, to add thousands of chemicals to products we may use or come into contact with every day.

What is important to note is that not only are these chemicals un-proven, un-tested and un-labelled, but the potential damage these can cause can be so harmful.  Would you be happy exposing yourself to a chemical that you’ve never heard of whilst not knowing what the repercussions of that could be? Well you could be doing it on a regular basis and even though the effects may not harm you today, later on in life these chemicals may affect your children or cause health problems to you as there is no safety data for long term exposure.

In the case of Ed and Lauren Brown, is wasn’t until they went through the heart break of having miscarriages that the couple decided to investigate whether environmental toxins that Lauren was coming into contact with every day could be to blame.

The documentary Unacceptable Levels needs our help to spread the word and make people aware of the film. In order to do this Ed and Lauren need to raise $50,000 to help get this documentary in front on many people as possible.

They are already doing a great job, as over 5000 people have already watched it on YouTube, and have so far have raised $8000 dollars, so they’ve still got a little way to go. If you would like to help you can do so by donating here.

Please take 5 minutes out of your day watch the video and donate a $1 and help play a part in this.
