Directed by Phyllis Ellis 2019, Canada
Each morning we slather with 1000’s of chemicals hidden inside cosmetics and personal care products, many of which are toxic.
Toxic Beauty is a documentary feature with exclusive access to scientists, lawyers, advocates, regulators, politicians, a dynamic whistle blower, survivors and women who have lost their lives. It follows the class action lawsuit against J&J and the plaintiffs, personal stories of women fighting for justice in a race against time with this deadly disease.
"Ellis’s film blows the lid off the issue with the precision of a Tomahawk missile." - Dorothy Woodend, The Tyee
"Engrossing… will make you rifle through your medicine cabinet." - Samantha Edwards, Now Toronto
