You made the switch to organic food, you exercise daily, you even have a favorite green juice recipe—now it’s time to graduate to the next level of green living!

Take the plunge by giving your vanity and medicine chest a complete overhaul and swapping out conventional skin care products for these natural and eco-friendly alternatives.

Body Lotion
Light, unscented, this natural body lotion is packed with sunflower and organic jojoba to soothe and soften even very sensitive skin while providing 100% daily hydration. It contains high quality, natural ingredients like aloe vera, green tea and coconut extracts to nourish and replenish skin on contact.

Hand Soap
Just in time for flu season, stay clean (and green) by avoiding soaps that contain triclosan, triclocarban or fragrance.  This hand soap uses high-quality ingredients such as olive oil, aloe vera and vitamins a and e to hydrate and replenish precious lost moisture with every application.

Face Lotion
As of today, not one study proves that repeated and prolonged use of parabens is safe. This low-cost synthetic preservative is so prevalent in popular face lotion brands that it’s hard to avoid – unless you know where to go for a safer alternative. One of our paraben-free faves contains revitalizing argan oil and evening primrose oil that enhances the skin moisture barrier and rejuvenates the skin.

Body Wash
Most body washes contain synthetic compounds. such as parabens, sulfates and triclosan, that multiple studies have been linked to cancer. If you find any of them lurking in your favorite product’s ingredients we recommend switching to this safer alternative. This wash is non-GMO, contains no parabens, lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol, polysorbates, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, dyes or any other unidentifiable junk that you would never want to apply to your skin. It’s pure and simple stuff, as your soap should be!
