How Green Would You Go?: Would You Risk Getting Sweaty To Save The Earth?

You try to clean your house with green, eco-friendly products, so why wouldn't you do the same thing with your body?  Although eco products got a bad rap in the past – some people claim they don’t clean as well as conventional products – better development, marketing, and willing testers have shown there are plenty of things worth integrating into your routine.

Some people might be a bit intimidated by eco-friendly hygiene, but I'm a total convert. I believe it's just as effective as all those major brands out there. If you're with me, try out some of these products below:

Start off your day by brushing your teeth with natural toothpaste. One brand that’s easy to find in your local supermarket is Tom's of Maine. Tom’s products are never tested on animals and rely heavily on ingredients derived from natural, regenerating resources like seaweed.

In your shower, reach for a soap that's certified organic – or one produced without animal fats if organic isn’t available. Dr. Bronner's has been making soaps for years – their body washes are certified organic and fair trade. For a fresh scent, check out lemongrass lime.

After you get dressed, forget about using your regular deodorant to stay dry. These can cause breakouts and irritate the sensitive skin under your arms due to the harsh chemicals found in anti-perspirants. Instead, reach for Crystal Body Deodorant. These deodorants are made from 100% mineral salt. This natural element helps eliminate odors without fragrances, dyes, or chemicals.

SheFinds wants to know – would you take the leap and go green with your hygiene routine? Is it worth it to ditch your Secret anti-perspirant and use Crystal instead? Let us know in our comments section: Just how green would you go?
