Good Morning America Lies to Viewers About Beauty Products

Based on this post by WellandGood NYC. Definitely worth a read!

Seeing news programs discuss natural cosmetics should be a good thing, right? Well, not this time. Good Morning America's segment, “The All-Natural Makeup Revolution” managed to provide viewers with blatant misinformation. According to GMA, organic cosmetics are expensive and don't last very long. Oh, but they're probably good for your skin. Maybe. 


I don't know about you, but it frustrates the hell out of me when clean cosmetics are completely misrepresented. Good Morning America needs to do another segment because that one did the natural cosmetic industry no justice. I mean, come on now, they featured Neutrogena Naturals and Cover Girl's phony natural foundation as affordable organic options. Can we say greenwashing?

Watch the segment for yourself:

So, what's your take on the segment? Are there any other examples of greenwashing that make you mad?
