We’ve compiled the best clean beauty recommendations for you to look your best without iffy ingredients. What is the clean beauty movement, and why is it important? Goop explains why choosing clean beauty products is so important, “It means a non-toxic product that is made without a long, ever-evolving list of ingredients linked to harmful health effects. The personal care industry is effectively unregulated—the last piece of regulation (a single page at that), was passed in 1938—which means that companies are essentially free to do whatever they want, with no government oversight, packing products that we use every day (mascara, face wash, shampoo, et al.) with toxic ingredients, including known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.” Learn more “The Dirty on Getting Clean.”
Just making small swaps can help reduce your exposure to ingredients linked to something as mild as skin irritations and as serious as cancers. The EU has regulated more than 1,300 of these ingredients compared to the US which has only banned 11. Our philosophy is to make the choices that make the most sense for you and your lifestyle – if you find a clean beauty product that works and it’s easy to make the switch – do it! Other products (looking at you, deodorant) may not fit your life, and that’s ok.
