Clean Beauty Breakdown: My Top 3 Non-Toxic Beauty Products
The love affair I have with non-toxic skin care is supreme, excessive and far beyond an apology. If you follow me on Instagram you know how much I honor and care for the largest organ in our body, our skin. This affair began in 2006 whilst attending cosmetology school. During that time I was taught to treat and protect the integrity of the skin with techniques and products made for each skin type (dry, oily, combo, sensitive, acne etc). I quickly learned that most products on the market are laced with toxic ingredients the United States has deemed legal. In fact, the United States does NOT require corporations to list cancer-causing ingredients on product labels.
And why do you think that is? Can we say...Profit?
We live in a time where information is readily at our fingertips. We can open up google and type in any ingredient on the product label and receive a description in a nanosecond as to what this ingredient does.
Now, I will not completely bash western medicine because I feel like everything has a place, but I WILL continue to reiterate that there is a natural cure for any ailment we might have either internally or externally. Chemically infused products should always be our very LAST resort.
With that being said, Here are my Top 3 favorite non-toxic beauty products for all skin types.
Farmacy formulates beautiful non-toxic products that are infused with natural ingredients such as echinacea and honey that harness the healing powers of nature to truly deliver farm to face skin care. They meet all FDA standards and pride themselves on being paraben free, mineral oil free, cruelty-free, artificial dye free, GMO-free and phthalate free.
YTTP combines superfoods and science to keep your skin youthful, vibrant, and full of life. Their products are antioxidant-rich, and vitamin and mineral filled to boost skin’s health.

****Pro Tip- When shopping for clean products/cosmetics, read the label carefully. If there's something you don't recognize, look it up and if there is no ingredients list, BE AWARE—you should always know exactly whats inside before you purchase.
