As we celebrate the beauty of our planet, it’s also important to be conscious of the beauty products we use on a daily basis. Seriously have you ever noticed the toxic harmful chemicals we rub into our faces, lips, hair on a daily? It’s time to say hi to beauty products that use ingredients from nature instead of those that damage it (and our bodies). And because we all want to look pretty in pink while minimizing our carbon footprint – like you can say otherwise now without sounding totally uncool – I’ve rounded up a few fabulous items to incorporate into your beauty regimen that are less toxic and more natural for the earth and for you!
UPTOWN SOAP CO.: Handmade in, of course, New York City these adorable soaps and lotions are packaged in recycled glass and come in unique scents like salted caramel, lychee currant, black honey and more. I was sold at handmade and then again at caramel.
SPARITUAL: Something about a vegan lip gloss?
SCOTCH NATURALS NAIL POLISH: Paint your nails without the chemicals/alcohol (no pun, but pun, completely and totally attended!) This water-based nail polish line offers bright shades in the similar non-toxic, vegan formula as above. Bonus: the gorgeous bottle is made of lead-free, recycled Italian glass. Who doesn’t like Italians?
THE HONEST COMPANY: Ever since Jessica Alba became all “mom” on us she established this organic product line, and let’s be honest, we are going to buy it just because it’s Jessica Alba and available in yummy flavors like sweet orange vanilla and lavender mint.
BOND NUMBER 9: This green Bond No. 9 perfume is an Earth Day special and when purchased, you’ll be supporting something other than smelling like a mixture of wood, trees, fruits and amber. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the I Love New York perfume will help the state of New York clean up parks and support preservations. Fuzzy Feeling and Smelling!
