Wal*Mart, do our beautiful young girls really need anti-aging make up?
How old were you or your daughters when you began experimenting with make up? I was in the sixth grade when tried eye shadow, but I certainly wasn’t concerned with anti-aging products as a tween. I abandoned make up all together when I was sixteen-years-old.
The Daily Mail reports:
Wal*Mart estimates the tween make up market is worth 2 billion dollars!
I commend Wal*Mart for making these products eco-friendly; however, I don’t quite trust the company to truly do so. Recyclable packaging and a few natural ingredients are not enough, but I have not seen a full disclosure of ingredients to know for sure. What I do know is that targeting eight-year-olds for make up, let alone anti-aging make up, sends the wrong message about the natural beauty our daughters possess. Alternet explains:
