And What ingredients to avoid

What is Clean Beauty?

How to Define Clean Beauty

Clean beauty includes products created without harmful chemicals and practices rooted in plant-based culture.

It means omitting ingredients found in traditional beauty products that could potentially cause nasty skin breakouts, cancer, and disrupt hormones.

Instead of using ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens, you replace them with those like aloe vera, herbs, carrier oils, essential oils, and other ingredients that come from the earth.

Toxic Beauty Ingredients to Avoid

This is an extremely small list of beauty ingredients to avoid. That means it’s up to us to watch out for ourselves and make sure we’re investing in products and brands that have our best interests in mind.
