Abstract
Crème multi-active, régénérante ou liftante, soin anti-âge ou repulpeur de lèvres, l'industrie des cosmétiques nous promet mer et monde à des prix souvent très onéreux. Pour être séduisantes, les promesses de l'industrie le sont, mais peut-on vraiment y croire ? Et que penser du véritable cocktail de substances chimiques qui les compose ? Joue-t-on à l'apprenti sorcier en se badigeonnant de crème dont l'innocuité est loin d'être prouvée ? Préparer ses cosmétiques à la maison avec des ingrédients courants et faciles à se procurer, c'est le pari fait par l'auteure dans Cosmétiques non toxiques. Ingrédients, méthodes de fabrication, matériel, trucs et conseils, tout ce que vous devez savoir pour confectionner vos cosmétiques à la maison.

Abstract
The question inspiring this scoping review was, "How best can health professionals prevent, recognize, assess, remediate and treat arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury exposures and toxicities, in Canadian individuals and populations?" The purpose was to prepare a broad-ranging review of background knowledge, as well as to summarize topics that would be helpful for health care professionals in various capacities, from clinical to public health. A pragmatic approach was used, to search appropriately for information according to the current level of knowledge and consensus. A range of literature search techniques was supplemented with targeted surveys of public health officials and clinical toxicologists, as well as consultation and peer review by collaborators with expertise in diverse aspects of this scoping review.
