Let’s talk clean beauty, and more specifically, the products that you swear by. In an effort to clear out the toxins in our homes and in the products we use each and every day, a skincare and beauty overhaul was at the top of the list. From natural deodorant that actually works to hair products for even the most sensitive of scalps, and mascara that promises mile-long lashes without all the bad stuff, we’ve compiled a list of non-toxic, good for you products that we can’t live without or that come highly recommended. Some of our favorite brands in the non-toxic, clean beauty genre include BeautyCounter, RMS Beauty, Ilia, Herbivore, and Public Goods, but this only skims the surface. Have a look at what we’re adding to our beauty regimen stat.
