Au Natural!

Hey guys! A lot of times I don’t think people realize how damaging the products they are using are. Why do you think women’s skin look so bad when they get older (apart from nutritional deficiencies)? So I found some really great products as far as makeup and skin care goes for those of you who don’t want to put a ton of chemicals on your skin and/or trying to be more natural.

Here’s a list of the products I’ve found:

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Lash Boosting Mascara, 70% of this product’s ingredients are in fact organic. It is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, and even gluten free.

Everyone’s favorite, the EOS lip balms. This product is 100% natural with 95% of their ingredients organic. In addition, it is gluten free, paraben free, petroleum free, and phthalate free.

Burt’sBees Citrus Facial Scrub contains all natural ingredients. This product is never tested on animals and does not contain phthalates or petrochemicals.

St.Ives Timeless Skin Apricot Scrub is sulfate free and paraben free with 100% natural exfoliants. Not only that, but this product is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and vegan (doesn’t have any animal ingredients). It’s better than some of the harsher scrubs on the market, but keep in mind that your body is made up of 70% water, and water is the best way to cleanse your face.

QueBella facial masks contain a minimum of 80% natural ingredients. Que Bella also has bath soaps, body scrubs, and other hair masks. You can find them at Target.

Tom’sWicked Fresh Cool Peppermint toothpaste contains no animal products or animal ingredients. No artificial colors, flavors, fragrance or preservatives. 5% (12 days) of employee time is spend volunteering, and 10% of their profits go to human and environmental goodness. Most of the packaging is made from recycled content and is easily recyclable as well.

Tom’sNatural Odor Protection deodorant has the same values as their toothpaste. It also does not contain artificial fragrance or preservatives and has no animal testing or ingredients.

Organix hair products has a variety of different shampoos and conditioners that are sulfate free, paraben free, and won’t damage color treated hair. They don’t test their products on animals, but they do contain animal products (such as egg whites).

A great hair mask is straight up coconut oil. You can melt some of it in your hand and massage it through your hair and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before you wash your hair. It really helps to strengthen your hair and prevent spilt ends. Other oils, like olive oil, work great too.

Hope this helps! If you have any natural or organic products that you would like to share, please don't hesitate to leave a comment down below.
