I recently switched out most of my beauty and cosmetic products after finding out I have heavy metals, formaldehyde and chemical residue in my blood. I thought I had super natural, organic products, but apparently some of them were not… so it was time to get scrutinous on every product in the house, checking everything on EWG and ordering the products that scored the lowest on their clean beauty site.
After my last post of my favorite natural products for baby, here are some of my favorite natural products for me!! (PS – I am not affiliated with any of these brands or receiving any form of payment or exchange from these products. Simply sharing my personal experience… and special thanks to Michelle Limanni for helping me with this research and blog post!!)
The Carina body wash is such a brilliant find (EWG- 1) and it comes in an unscented version as well as some light fresh scents. I am enjoying the citrus moisturizing body wash. It is smooth, fresh and lathers well into a great consistency and luxurious wash. I like the simple and chic packaging too 😉
I am also impressed with the Carina Unscented body lotion which has finally helped me switch out the Cera-Ve lotion in my life! It is non greasy, absorbs really well and leaves skin soft, subtle, moisturized without any film. I’m really glad I have found this brand and am enjoying these pure, simple yet effective products. EWG – 1
I’ve been using this shampoo for a couple of years now and absolutely love how it tames my coarse, curly, unruly, lions mane, making it soft, light and smell fresh and breezy. It makes my wild tangles much more manageable and the wash lasts a few days, which is super helpful as a mama with no time to wash my hair daily, lol.
I have also been using the Davine’s Love conditioner for a few years and it is a great combo with the shampoo. My hair gets so silky smooth instantly and feels healthy and replenished. I am not sure of it’s EWG score but it is described online as a mom and pop company in Italy with core principles in sustainable beauty. The products are also vegan.
This is what I use on my wet hair to tame the frizz and make it super smooth and shiny for long floaty locks. I love the way it smells too and helps make my hair extra soft when it dries. (My husband steals this all the time so he seems to like it too, haha.)
Cruelty free, vegan, no sulfites or parabens, a great more natural solution to get the brassiness out of blonde.
I have found this brand to be the most effective natural deodorant to date! You can easily wear it all day without rubbing off… which used to be my pet peeve about natural deodorants… you had to keep reapplying throughout the day. I’ve recently been loving this green tea scent but I have tried a few from their range (from geranium to lavender)… and love them all! I do find it will rub off on clothing slightly so heads up to check your underarms for white reside from time to time.
I have to say, I didn’t expect Burt’s Bees to make such a good foundation! Not only are the ingredients super simple and safe, the foundation itself is super effective and lasts all day. It definitely helps my oily skin not get too shiny throughout the day and it doesn’t seem to break me out either! I would say it’s about a medium for coverage. I use a coverup stick on my pimples beneath this foundation.
I picked up a blush whilst I was stocking up on the Burt Bees Foundation and have been very impressed with this too! The color tones are great and I like the way it settles on my skin. I’m definitely a fan of the brands make up collection and they score well on EWG. I will definitely be buying more from this brand!
I LOVE this Milk Flex Foundation Stick! I am not even kidding when I say that it is like airbrushing for my face. It fills up all the grooves and covers the pimples… and stays in place allllll day. It is also vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfates-free, phthalates-free, talc-free, silicone-free, soy-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free and gluten-free. I am a BIG fan!
These face wipes are EWG verified. I finally switched from my ‘Simple’ face wipes and these are a great replacement. They leave my skin feeling extremely fresh after I remove my makeup. They are a little on the pricey side however I find them extremely cleansing, pure and what’s more they are biodegradable.
After a lot of research on Think Dirty – the Vita Liberata scored 0, I ordered this Ten Minute Tan… I am planning to use it tonight so I will let you know how it goes!
The Tropic Sun Drench Overnight also scored 0 on EWG Think Dirty so I ordered them both… I will let you know how I get on with them and how my winter tan turns out this week!
Can you believe our previous detergent had formaldehyde in it??!! Once I made that discovery I switched it out right away and after my research on EWG Think Dirty I ordered the Attitude Sensitive Baby Laundry Detergent for the whole family as it scored really well and has been a clean, fresh upgrade in our laundry washing.
Our old hand soap contained parabens and because I wash my hands multiple times I day I had to replace it with something that was a lot more natural and non-toxic. I absolutely LOVE the orangy scent from Aunt Fannie’s Microcosmic Hand Soap… and it’s probiotic powered so is also adding the good bacteria to your skin biome.
Hello hello hello…. you are going to hear me talk a LOT about OSEA because these facial products have made my skin feel amazing!!!! I have had problem skin for years and it feels like I have tried everything! Osea has been the BEST skin care I have ever found and I don’t say that lightly. I discovered it after listening to Lacey Phillips talk about it on a “to be magnetic” podcast and it has changed the game for me! Honestly my skin feels so much calmer and smoother after using this blemish balm.
I also love the way that Osea sources the most natural ingredients and seaweeds to create their products and have tried to keep all the formulas as pure as possible…. and did you know that Osea’s creator and owner CHANNELS all the formulas for each product??! You can totally tell that they come from a divine intention when with you feel the luxury and quality of these natural products. I use the Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream as a daily defense moisturizer, I also often use it overnight and my face feels so clean and fresh when I wake up.
This is my MIRACLE product… and I believe it has a cult following. If you buy one thing on this list, buy this. This is the OSEA Hyaluronic Sea Serum and has changed my face. It is so deliciously hydrating, every cell gets a radiant boost and I seriously wake up feeling years younger, smoother, plumper and sexier after wearing it overnight. Don’t believe me… try it for yourself.
