Cruelty Free Beauty

Now that I have started to eat super healthy, and focusing on my family becoming super healthy, I think it's time to get rid of all those horrible cosmetics, and beauty items. After you read about all the chemicals that are in food, you never think about the chemicals that you actually put on your skin. I read that you put over 500 chemicals on your skin A DAY. How crazy is that?



So, I am starting to slowly rid my home of all toxic products. Sorry L'Oreal, Maybelline, and Revlon. I will start purchasing cruelty free brands, and mostly vegan products. I know that you are probably thinking those products are going to be super expensive. There are so many brands that don't test on animals, and don't contain toxic chemicals.

The first things to go where the dish soap, toothpaste, deodorant. I went to Target, and bought new toothpaste, and dish soap. My daughter already uses the Tom's brand toothpaste, and we already use organic body wash and soap. I stopped using chemically loaded face wash, and body soap a long time ago. I love Burt's Bees for the kids, and their facial products are really great. I love brands that you don't have to go hunting down for, and that aren't super expensive. Burt's Bees have very reasonable prices too. Their cleansing wipes are around $6, and their toner was $13. I feel like I spent more on Clinique's toner, and it was HORRIBLE. I don't understand the Clinique following, but that's another blog post.

 
 

Here are some links to find out what brands are vegan, organic, and cruelty free:

I cannot wait to share my reviews, and how we are cleaning our home of toxic products!

What products do you enjoy that are cruelty free, vegan, or organic?

  1. I see more and more bloggers going natural with products. I try to get paraben free as much as I can, but I do know that doing just that is not enough. I like using oils instead of scented lotions, and it seems to be working well for me. Thanks for all of the links.
