For those who haven’t heard it is officially ‘Plastic Free July’ this month and we are all about taking care of the beautiful world we live in!
So, in honor of taking care of our planet we thought it is the perfect time to start paying attention to what you’re putting on your face as there can be some really harmful things in the beauty products that we use every day!
Nasty ingredients such as Pthalates, Parabens and Lead can be found in a lot of popular products, and have been linked to cancer, hormonal imbalances and skin problems.
In fact, did you know 80 percent of ingredients used in personal care products have never been tested for safety!! Scary huh?
Some studies have even shown that it’s actually safer to consume your products than to put them on your skin!
A percentage of what you put on your skin enters your bloodstream much faster than if you swallowed it because they are an immediate gateway to the bloodstream, bypassing the liver.
You’ve probably heard all this before though right? In yet so many of us continue to slap on these products each and every day simply because most of us don’t know where to start when it comes to ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ beauty products.
If you are considering making the switch but don’t know where to start, then read on to see our top 5 favourite all natural beauty products that we absolutely can’t get enough of!!
