My Top Green Beauty Products
These green beauty products are made with non-toxic ingredients to ensure the smallest impact on your health and the environment!
What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body – our skin is our largest organ so it’s important to make sure you’re using clean, non-toxic, green beauty products. Today, I’m talking about my favorite products.
FYI, this post is NOT sponsored. These are just my favorites that I hope you’ll love too!
SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER
First up, shampoo and conditioner. My favorite hair products at the moment are the Peppermint and Echinacea Vivacious Volume duo from Acure.
I have really thin hair, so I need hair products that aren’t going to weigh me down, and that’s why I love these.
Next up, body lotion. I have extremely dry skin, so I use lots of lotion. And as lotion is something that you put all over your entire body, it’s something that is especially important when it comes to green beauty products.
I like this Lavender Body Butter from Andalou Naturals. It’s luxurious, yet affordable, and it smells amazing.
Moving farther down south to the feet, I use this Citrus Cardamom Foot Balm from Sparitual. They also have awesome Vegan Nail Polish, which is free of the 12 top toxins that are normally found in nail polish.
I used to think that if I put anything on my face that was really oily that it was going to cause pimples, but I’ve actually found just the opposite. Now, all I use on my face are oils and serums.
I use a Wild Carrot serum concentrate from Odacité. This particular one is said to support a vital glow, and each one of their different serums is targeted to a different type of skin condition.
HAIR + BODY SERUM
I like Ranavat Botanics Hair and Body Serum, which helps to moisturize damaged hair, or you can use it on your body.
I also use Honest Beauty Organic Facial Oil. You can use it day and night, and it’s really affordable.
The second most important thing for your face after your serum is sunscreen. However, a lot of sunscreens have chemicals that soak in your skin, get in your bloodstream, and cause many potential problems.
Instead of the chemical-laden sunscreen, you can use zinc-based sunscreen. I use this SPF 30 “5 In 1” Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen from Suntegrity.
I used to be a major skeptic of natural deodorant, mainly because I thought it didn’t work. After finding this Lavender Deodorant from Schmidt’s though, I was sold. This stuff is incredible. It totally keeps smells at bay and it’s pretty darn affordable.
I also like Death by Lavender from North Coast Organics. These two deodorants are very similar formulations, but this one also comes in a travel size, so it’s perfect for on-the-go freshening up!
I stopped using regular perfume when I transitioned to green beauty. We don’t know what manufacturers put in “fragrance”, and it can cause a lot of irritation for people that have sensitive skin (like me). So, I started using essential oils.
I also like Saje Fortify Blend – I use this whenever I’m feeling a little bit stuffed up at night. The menthol from the peppermint helps to open up the sinuses, so it’s a great natural alternative to Vicks VapoRub.
Lastly, self tanner. I wish I didn’t like to use self tanner, but hey, it’s better than getting a sunburn!
Most self tanners are terrible and have all kinds of nasty chemicals in them. This self tanner from Beauty By Earth is the only self tanner that I’ve found that meets the criteria on the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Skin Deep Website, which I highly encourage you to check out.
You can put in any product that you use, and they have a huge database that will tell you if the ingredients are safe and non-toxic.
This one shows up as safe on the EWG’s website, and it works really well.
