There are multiple opportunities for our bodies to come into contact with harmful chemicals throughout the day. Our personal hygiene products shouldn’t be one of them.
Look for products that are free of parabens, phthalates, and fragrances. If your stash of products needs a make over, check out this list of must-have natural options.
For the Bath/Shower
Bath bombs have become wildly popular. You can buy them virtually anywhere. Be sure to choose bath bombs that are made from natural ingredients.
There are also safer options for hair care as well. Be sure to read labels, and look for shampoo without sulfates or parabens.
Your face is one of the most sensitive areas on your body. Choose facial care that is free from chemicals, preservatives, and fragrance. Using a more natural face wash is also great for those with extra sensitive skin.
After the Bath
Deodorant is one of the more difficult personal care items to find that is actually natural. Many brands claim “natural” while still using chemicals. Be sure to read labels and make an informed decision. Your natural options will likely eliminate the use of aluminum, which means it will not be an antiperspirant. Many natural deodorants will contain ingredients to help absorb sweat rather than prevent it, as it is a normal bodily function.
Keeki Pure & Simple body lotions are made with nourishing oils and organic ingredients. Your skin will feel hydrated and soft, while smelling great too, without the harmful additives. The hardest part will be deciding which great scent to choose!
We try to do our best to keep our kids safe, and skin care should be no exception. TruKid is a great option for taking care of your child’s skin. Their line includes bubble baths, hair and body wash, eczema care, sunscreen, diaper rash cream, and more.
We can’t forget about the men in our lives. There are some great natural options for men’s shaving needs. Taylor’s shaving cream is all natural, organic, and made in the USA. Men love how it leaves their skim moisturized while still smelling great.
