As more and more consumers are looking for healthier alternatives to save themselves from unwanted exposure to toxic chemicals, parabens, hormones and other dangers that have lurked in our beauty cabinets for decades, it is important to know what products are truly natural and organic. There are plenty of tips when it comes to finding the right products. For starters, when you see a label that states that something is “natural”, look for organic, fair trade, or vegan in addition. It will be a good step in the right direction. Every day, more and more healthy and hypoallergenic products are hitting the market for those who care not only what goes in the body, but on the body as well. One downfall of this can be the steep prices of accessing pure ingredient filled beauty treats, however that no longer has to be the case. I have gathered a collection of tried and true great organic products that will keep your green in the bank.
