Every organic cosmetics line to try if you haven't already

- advertisement -
Health is at the forefront of almost every conversation these days. Whether it's the discussion around mental health, the integrity of our personal hygiene products or the quality of our food, we're much more aware and in tune with our bodies. It seems like everyone is trying some new vegan-isa diet or variation of yoga as of late. And I'm here for it. But it's not solely about exercise and what foods you choose to put into your body, but also what you put onto your skin. There was a U.S. Committee hearing to discuss exploring current practices in cosmetic development and safety held recently. But as of now, the U.S. government still can't review nor confirm that the cosmetics we're using are completely safe before they go on the market, and there's no policy for taking them off the market if they are harmful. This includes everything from shampoo to feminine products, makeup and nail polishes. Our skin is our largest organ. It absorbs the chemicals from many of our personal healthcare products—including many chemicals we have little to no knowledge about. But there's no need to wait for a law to pass to take care of your skin the natural way. Here's every organic cosmetics line to try if you haven't already:
