It’s easy to forget our skin is an organ- just like our heart, our liver, our kidneys, etc. and is VERY absorbent. Meaning the things we put on our skin eventually end up in our bloodstream!
Cleaning up your home + beauty products can be intimidating or may even seem like an extremely annoying + time consuming thing to do at first. If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone! It’s actually exactly how I felt just a few years ago.
When I learned about the MANY unnecessary toxins in our everyday home + beauty products it kind of blew my mind. From hormone disruptors, to neurotoxins, to all sorts of weird shit… the US does a pretty terrible job regulating the ingredients in beauty + home products. So yet again- we have to be our own advocates!
It took me a few years of consistent, gradual change to make the swap to a non-toxic lifestyle. I didn’t want to skimp out on effectiveness, quality, or unwanted smelliness (lookin’ at you armpits) – and it took literal YEARS of trial and error to find my favorite products that ACTUALLY. FREAKING. WORK.
So here we are- I created this guide to take all the guesswork out for you so you can jump onto the clean beauty + home product bandwagon without all the headache of trial and error!
