I am always on the hunt for better, less toxic beauty and personal care products that work. This is the latest list of things I love. My friend Nicki recently spent the night and verified these products as “girlfriend sharing” worthy. It was evident that I had some winners when she placed an order to 100% Pure and Josie Maran before even leaving my house.
I use a lot of products from Alba Botanica. They are free of parabens, phthalates and the company does not perform animal testing. They did not score the lowest that one can score on the toxicity scale at https://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ but mainly because there is information missing.

Your skin is your largest organ and anything you place on your skin is absorbed into your body. That is why it is so important to make sure your skincare, personal care and beauty products are as non-toxic as possible. It is common to find horrific ingredients in make-up and nail polish like formaldehyde and hormone disruptors such as propyl paraben.
The EWG Skin Deep website is a great tool. Its purpose is to rate the toxicity of all major skin, hair and beauty products. Be forewarned, you will become addicted to searching all of your favorite products on this site. It is a huge time waster, in the greatest way.
How it works, from their website, “Skin Deep presents two ratings for products and ingredients, a hazard rating and a data availability rating. •The hazard score, a 0-10 scale from low to high hazard, reflects known and suspected hazards. A product’s hazard rating can be higher than the sum of its parts, if, for example, the product contains chemicals called “penetration enhancers” that increase the amounts of ingredients that soak through the skin. •The data availability rating – none, limited, fair, good or robust — reflects how much scientists know – or don’t know – about an ingredient’s safety.”
