Once I found out about the Think Dirty app, I scanned all my beauty and personal care products to see how dirty or clean they were. Any guesses on the results?
You can use the app to look up what chemicals are in your products, and the side effects that they cause. I ended up throwing away over 90 percent of my products, and I had to replace them with clean alternatives.
I was more interested in finding products with clean ingredients, than basing my decisions on the number rating from the app. Some products could have a low (good) rating, but still have a hidden dirty ingredients. The app isn’t perfect, but it’s a great place to start if you’re looking to use non-toxic products. You can also check the Environmental Working Group (EWG) to see how products rank.
Our skin is our body’s largest organ, and whatever we put on our skin is entering our blood stream. It’s pretty scary to think I’ve been regularly using some very toxic products. While ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power. I realize replacing all your beauty items with clean beauty brands can be a daunting task, but consider replacing each one as you run out of what you’re currently using. Of course, you’ll want to choose brands made in the USA because it’s important to support American businesses, but also because you want to have the highest degree of trust.
If you’re like me, you use a lot of different beauty and personal care products, depending on the time of year, or just your mood. I tried to offer an extensive list of non-toxic clean beauty brands and personal care options for every category.
I encourage you to click through to learn more about these brands and their product offerings. You’ll be delighted, and your senses will be tantalized at all the amazing options! Each of these brands is doing really great things, and offering amazing non-toxic beauty offerings.
Facial Oil: Botanic Organic Pomegranate & Argan Oil Serum is one of the best facial oil I’ve ever experienced. It’s so thick and it smells amazing. Pomegranate, argan and pumpkin oils protect against wrinkles caused by oxidation, while oils of sea buckthorn and tamanu help to restore skin damaged by age, exposure and trauma. Calendula herbal oil soothes and helps to regenerate new skin cells and the argan oil contains sterolins which improve skin’s metabolism, reduces inflammation and promotes excellent moisture retention. My skin was noticeably brighter within a few days of using it. I highly, highly recommend all Botanic Organic products. One is better than the next!
