HAIR


• Kate Hudson partners with L.A. celeb hairstylist David Babaii to create David Babaii for WildAid, a hair-care line that donates 10 percent of proceeds to the animal-protection organization. She shot the ads for it in South Africa last year with Peter Lindbergh and, yes, real animals. Look for it this summer. [WWD]

SKIN
• A new study has found many organic personal-care products contain the carcinogenic ingredient 1,4-Dioxane. Products by Kiss My Face, Jason, Giovanni, and the Whole Foods line all contained the toxic byproduct. Maybe natural isn’t so natural after all. [WWD]

• The Oxygen Peel package from Philosophy is a customer favorite: After two creams and three minutes, you'll have brighter, softer skin — not the weird blotchy look you'd expect from a chemical peel. [Beauty Blogging Junkie]

• Serums are short-term moisturizing and firming fixes, while creams hydrate for the long haul, according a recent study by the International Journal of Cosmetic Science. (Yes, they needed a study for that.) [Cosmetics and Toiletries]

• Antiperspirant has been linked to breast cancer. It blocks the sweat-gland pores to stop sweat from starting, which can get in your bloodstream and become carcinogenic. If this makes you wary, try natural deodorants instead. [BellaSugar]

MAKEUP
• Yesterday’s New York Times article listed a few celebrity makeup artists, but a few notables didn't make the paper. [All About the Pretty]
