WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
Here’s some articles on the subject:
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!
YES THIS IS ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT
I can’t stop staring at these…. <33333 *___________*
My first reaction was “help, I need all of these.” Second reaction: I’d rather get Proplica lip rods.
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.
I don’t know if it’s just fear or complete stupidity but holy fuck some of these YouTube comments.
"Ban Bossy" is not taking away someone’s right to use the word or erasing it from existence. This campaign is aimed to empower girls and women and encourage them to take the leadership role without fearing of being labeled something negative. Passiveness starts early and if people start telling girls they’re bossy, they are less likely to practise leadership behaviours, more likely to be submissive, and are more prone to reserve their opinions later on in life.
If a man steps up and takes charge and acts assertively, he’s more likely to be called “the man,” “the boss,” or “the leader.” If the man is replaced by a woman with the same leadership qualities and assertiveness, she is more likely to be labeled “bossy” or as evident from the YouTube comments, “a bitch/cunt/feminazi.” This double standard is pervasive and inhibiting to women, because for the longest time girls and women were meant to be passive, meant to be submissive and be a follower, not a leader.
For those who have watched “The Devil Wears Prada,” this double standard is definitely brought to light when Andy defends Miranda:
“Okay, she’s tough, but if Miranda were a man no one would notice anything about her except how great she is at her job”
THIS is what the campaign is about. it’s about shedding those labels and giving girls the same opportunity to be a leader and not be afraid of speaking up.
