Safe Beauty Association

The Safe Beauty Association has been set up to offer tips and wisdom that will help you to use products more safely, and minimise your chances of being infected by your cosmetics.

The website itself features advice about keeping your hands and kit clean, and how to shop for make-up in a ‘safe' way - for example, how to ensure that you try products at make up counters in a manner that will prevent you picking up (worst-case scenario) a cold sore or an eye infection.

In addition, the SBA wants to establish a network of members - from make-up artists to beauty therapists, makeover consultants etc. - who will sign up to their code of conduct so that beauty-addicts like us can have our make-up or treatments done knowing that we're in the best possible hands. Jemma Kidd Makeup School has already enrolled.

Since so many of us also engage in blog sales, I hope it will reinforce how important it is to sanitise the "lightly tested/swatched" items that we sometimes purchase from one another.

How often do you sanitise your make up? Have you had any horrifying episodes take at make up counters?

This is interesting. Couldn't click link to open in new tab though, you disabled right click! Means I have to leave your blog to read the site...

There's an infamous post on our blog but I won't go on about it because it's already raised enough discussion among blog-haters!

This is such a great idea, I hope a lot of major brands who have counters and stores sign up.

I've never really had a bad experience with sanitisation at stores or counters, but I never really apply stuff straight to my face - bar testing foundation along my jawline.
