A MANIFESTO WRITTEN BY NATURE HAIRDRESSERS

FOR HUMANS, ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

 

What we assume: We consider the will of every human being as untouchable and everyone should unfold in his own way. Nevertheless, the legal principle that the freedom of the individual has its limits in the right of the neighbour must apply to everyone. That is why the right of one’s neighbour to the integrity of his health, water, air and soil is a fundamental right which is massively violated by the use of chemical-synthetic ingredients in cosmetics and care products as well as in cleaning products.

Considering the fact that

• many conventional cosmetic, care and cleansing products contain chemical-synthetic ingredients which are suspected to be –either on its own or in interaction- harmful to health (e.g. allergenic, skin irritant, hormone system altering, mutagenic, carcinogenic) and/or to be harmful to the environment.

• these substances are released into the environment when used, are ingested by the body and may cause harm to the body, especially when exposed frequently.

• these substances are released into the environment when used, are ingested by the body and may cause harm to the body, especially when exposed frequently.

• when chemical-synthetic ingredients are used, they get into our air, water and oceans and are often not or only hardly degradable (e.g. microplastic!).

• unborn babies and children can suffer health damage due to their physical sensitivity as a result of the chemical-synthetic ingredients.

• there are very good natural alternatives for cosmetics, care and cleaning, which are not harmful to the well-being of humans, animals and the environment, which preserve clean water, good breathing air and an intact earth for all of us.

With this manifesto, we express our deep concern for our health and for the integrity of the environment. Through information and education about dangers, we humans are becoming more and more aware of the urgent need to turn away from the past and towards a new path: „Together with nature“.

With our signature, we therefore call on those responsible in politics and industry to issue a ban on hazardous chemical-synthetic ingredients and, more generally, to make a much stronger commitment to comprehensive and sustainable health and environmental protection.

This manifesto was created by: BBF – Bewegung bewusster Friseure International (Movement of Conscious Hairdressers International) The text is based on and inspired by the manifesto „Der Malser Weg“ (The Malser Way), written by doctors, pharmacists, biologists, veterinarians of the Upper Venosta Valley, with the contents of which the authors are associated in solidarity.
