A few of my favorite, all-natural, environmentally AND animal-friendly beauty products that I adore.
Over the years I have made strides to be a lot more conscious about the products I bring into my home + use on my skin… and the skin of my children. We learned early on that cohen had eczema + skin sensitivities. So, we swapped out all our cleaning products, laundry detergent + skincare for scent-free, dye-free options. I also began looking for home products that were environmentally friendly in both the ingredients + the packaging.
Slowly, I have been swapping out some of my daily beauty products for natural + safer options. Why you might ask? One, my sister-in-law recently took a college course that dove into the unpublicized world of how beauty + home products are made. The research uncovered dozens of well-known brands test on animals or use harmful chemicals in their ingredients. I was blown away but more importantly, felt like I could no longer support companies that didn’t align with my personal views.
With some significant research, I have found some awesome beauty products that are either all-natural, environmentally friendly and/or animal-friendly. Moreover, I have been loving their results + I have a clean conscious with my beauty purchases. Remember, our skin ingests everything we put on our bodies. So, just like eating organic foods, we should be mindful of what we consume + apply to our skin. I fully support brands that are doing their part to better the well-being of its users. Likewise, I love when a brand creates products with our environment in consideration.
My Favorite Natural Beauty Products
david’s toothpaste: this natural toothpaste has a focus on sustainability. It also naturally whitens, removes plaque + freshens breath, just like most grocery-store varieties. However, david’s is made with natural ingredients, no sulfates, no fluoride, it’s 100% vegan, cruelty free + recyclable. The question is, why are you not using this toothpaste?
w3ll people bio brightener: there are dozens of illuminators on the market but very few can say they are free of chemicals, cruelty free + verified for non-toxic health affects. This brightener goes on super smooth + blends so well; giving me that perfect glow that lasts all day.
mineral fusions bronzer: a good bronzer is crucial when you’re feeling a little drab or pale. This one from mineral fusions has both matte + shimmer in a small compact, allowing you to build the perfect contour + tan to your skin. I also love that it is gluten free, 100% vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, fragrance free, talc free + hypo-allergenic.
agent nateur deodorant: most over-the-counter deodorants contain aluminum; a toxic chemical that has been linked to alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, dementia + autism. This natural deodorant helps keep me feeling fresh + sweat-free, even on the hottest of summer days.
dr. hauschka facial toner: a spritz of this light-weight toner helps to minimize my pores, balance the moisture in my skin + takes any lingering makeup off my face post-washing. It’s non-abrasive + has some awesome natural extracts like witch hazel + anthyllis. Dr. hauschka has been around for decades + its mission to support humanity + cultivate well-being has not wavered in all their years.
