Eco-Chic Beauty: Target Goes Green
September 24, 2008
Wandering the beauty aisle of my neighborhood Target for their latest designer makeup, a new product line caught my eye and landed in my bright red cart: Green by Nature. All of the products are made with between 91% and 98% natural ingredients, according to their packaging. That means no artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, parabens, DEA, petroleum, propylene glycol, sulfates, saccharine, dioxin or phthalates. Try saying that three times really fast. Instead, all of the products— lotion, body scrub, hand cream, body wash and spray, and lip products too— are made with botanical extracts and essential oils. The prices are higher than the typical beauty products at a discount retailer, but still well under department store brands.
The new additions to my beauty routine: the fantastically fresh Mint Green Tea Body Wash ($10) and the luxuriously moisturizing Almond Cocoa Butter ($12). I confess I bought them simply because they smelled delish, but I’ve fallen in love with how well they work.
