Natural Awakenings Boston

Free Workshop to Identify and Avoid Toxic Beauty Products


Newton Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, in Newton Centre, will present Identifying Toxins in Beauty Products at 2:30 p.m. on December 1. This free workshop is for anyone who wants to learn about avoiding the toxins and carcinogens that are used in many beauty products.

“When it comes to good health, what you put on your skin can be as important as what you put in your mouth,” says Dr. Julie Burke, owner of Newton Chiropractic and Wellness. “The unfortunate truth is that most women put more than 500 chemicals on their face and body every day. These chemicals have nothing to do with making you look better, and they’re often working against you.”

Burke, who has practiced natural health and wellness for more than 20 years, will offer attendees the chance to try safer beauty products at the workshop, which is part of the center’s Community Wellness Program. “We’ve spent hours poring over the data and have boiled this down to a simplified system for identifying the toxins to avoid,” Burke says. “We’ve also got some suggestions about products that we’d recommend.”

Cost: Free. Location: Newton Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, 345 Boylston St., Ste. 300, Newton Centre. For more information and reservations, call 617-964-3332 or visit
