Women use an average of 16 beauty products on their bodies every day. That’s a lot of chemicals both going down the drain and being absorbed through your skin. Organic and natural beauty products not only cut the risks for damaging your health and harming the earth, but they often contain natural antioxidants that are beneficial for your skin. Here are some of SheFinds favorites for skin, hair and body. Be sure to tell everyone what your favorites are, too!
1. Skin Savers: Dr. Hauschka provides a full line of all-natural cosmetics and skin care products, which are all excellent, especially the Clarifying Toner. The prices can be a little steeper than normal though, ranging from $20 to $60 per product. Avalon Organics, however, comes at a much lower price point and I particularly like their CoQ10 Wrinkle Defense for aging skin.
2. Bath Time: Pangea Organics, winner of the Best Skin Care Company Award at Natural Products Expo West 2007, features a full line of body care products as well as facial skin care goods. All of their products are infused with aromatic oils and herbal extracts to leave your skin clean and healthy. An added bonus: everything is packaged in recycled materials and the glass bottles are reusable.
3. Hair Heaven: Modern Organic Products (a.k.a. “mop”) offers affordable organic hair care that is excellent for treating all hair types and woes. The Extreme Moisturizer Conditioner works wonders on my dry, damaged locks.
