Natural and nontoxic beauty. Good for the planet and your health! You have heard me talk about this topic dozens of times before. That’s how important it is! As consumers we tend to trust all beauty brands blindly without analyzing what exactly goes behind those bottles. We forget that our bodies absorb whatever we put on/in them. Hair, skin, teeth, lips. Whatever product we put on them will be absorbed by our body and will go directly into our bloodstream. If these products contain harmful and toxic ingredients (like petroleum, parabens, etc), they will poison our cells slowly. The solution? Become a wiser consumer, perform our research, READ labels, and choose brands consciously! A place that makes shopping easier for me because of their strict mission-driven focus on selling brands that are natural, non-toxic, fair-trade and cruelty-free (no animal testing) is WholeFoods. I shop there for my veggies, fruits, superfoods, AND beauty and hygienge products! I’ve partnered with them to give you guys an intro to natural beauty and show you some of the new products I’ve chosen to try this month based on your recommendations! Another tip? WholeFoods is having a Beauty SALE Oct 6-8! You can save 25% on all body care, hair care, deodorants, facial lotions, cosmetics, soaps, and oils!! Don't miss this chance to stock up on your favorite brands!
Acure: Acure's products are made from plants, essential oils and other natural and organic ingredients without the use of parabens, artificial colors, sulfates, and harmful preservatives. They are vegan and not tested on animals! I love their chlorella cell stimulating facial mask and use it once per week.
Primal Pit Paste Deodorant: We all know how difficult it is to find a natural and nontoxic deodorant that actually works! I've tried over ten different brands already and haven't been able to find one I truly adore. This month, I'm giving Primal Pit a try. It is made with pure ingredients. Please note it is not 100% vegan since it contains beeswax.
Juice Beauty: I've heard about this brand a lot in the past few months and have finally decided to give it a try. All products are made with natural, organic, plant-based ingredients and without Parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene or butylene glycols, phthalates, sulfates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, GMO, silicones, gluten, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances. They are also cruelty-free (no animal testing). I've been using the SPF 30 Oil Free Moisturizer every morning for the past week and love it so far.
