I have been worried about this as well. Contacted Natur-a about their rice milk and this was their response, "The rice entering in our rice beverage production comes from Argentina. We have chosen this particular rice because Argentina is listed among the country in the world where the soil is less contaminated by arsenic and pollutants. Even if there is no regulation for arsenic in beverages, we have sent many samples to an independent laboratory for analyses. The results show that there is less than 0.01mg/L of arsenic in our rice beverages. This value (0.01mg/L) is the maximum rate accepted by government for drinking water." I felt a bit better but now after reading your article I think i'll have to scrap the rice milk and rice pasta. Thank you for the info.
Does soaking rice before using significantly reduce arsenic residue levels?
This is very surprising. I'd like to say thanks for the info but now I'm wondering what other harmful chemicals are in the foods I eat. Thanks for sharing this anyways! I'm going to poke around your blog a little more to see what else I need to cut out of my diet. Cheers, Brendon
SPF of 7 it is really good for such a natural product. Great info, thank you very much
Summer | tortoise & lady grey:
I've been meaning to try charcoal for home made eyeliner for a while- I'll have to see if I can find some sustainable charcoal in Australia. I've tried cacao for brown but I wasn't quite happy with the result. I did, however, quite like cacao with beetroot powder and tapioca starch for a simple home made blush.

Face-off: Which natural mascara actually works?
Sh*t. There’s more arsenic in rice products than we thought.
