Are Your Beauty Products “Honest”?
By Anna K. Fryxell |
As much as we’d like to ignore it, the truth is that there are a lot of questionable chemicals and ingredients in the beauty products we use. Even products like sunscreen that are meant to protect our skin from cancer can contain cancer-causing ingredients. Luckily, there are companies out there, like The Honest Company, that are, well, “honest” about what’s in their formulas.
Every item from The Honest Company is non-toxic, eco-friendly and never contains questionable chemicals like phthalates, formaldehyde and parabens. Oh, did we mention that this is Jessica Alba’s company?
But it’s not just about what the products don’t contain, it’s also about what they do contain. Every product actually delivers on what it’s supposed to do. Take the Organic Lip Balm Trio ($10)—it contains nourishing and moisturizing oils like jojoba, olive, coconut and tamanu. The Honest Hand Sanitizer ($7) not only kills germs and bacteria, but it also contains soothing botanicals that prevent dryness.
And these are just a few products among the many others in their bath and body collection. It’s a great feeling putting products on your skin without having to worry about what could be lurking inside it. That also goes for their cleaning products and baby goods too!
These products check off nearly everything on our list when it comes to selecting a product: they’re safe and they actually work. Will you try them?
