Shake the winter blahs with revitalizing (and safe) skin- and hair-care products.
Publish date:

Ready to do some spring cleaning on your personal care routine? Check the ingredients labels on items like shampoos, body washes, and moisturizers. You’ll likely find parabens, artificial fragrances, and other not-so-natural additives. These ingredients can actually be absorbed through the skin and can build up in your body over time. For example, many of the chemicals used as fragrance are actually petrochemicals linked to endocrine disruption and cancer. And there is evidence that parabens can contribute to metabolic, developmental, hormonal, and neurological disorders, as well as various cancers.


Next, toss the toxins and look to these healthy alternatives—all made with natural ingredients such as nourishing plant oils, botanicals, vitamins and minerals, and other ingredients you can feel 100% good about. And they’re guaranteed to leave you feeling radiant and refreshed.
