Spring. It's a time for cleaning out the stuff that's accumulated in our closets (donate your discards here!) and, while we're at it, for cleaning up what's in the stuff we use on our faces and bodies everyday. Here are three of our favorite natural personal care products that will definitely remain in our keep piles.
OUR TOP 3 SPRING CLEAN PRODUCTS
1. Agent Nateur Deodorant $19
We love Agent Nateur Deodorant so much we give it as gifts. Is that weird? But who wouldn't want an effective, all-natural deodorant made in Los Angeles from healthy, organic ingredients you can EAT? Especially now, as the weather (and frankly, our activity level) heats up!
We've been using Jane's makeup for as long as we can both remember. Jane founded her company in 1994 after years in the entertainment industry where she saw first-hand the ill effects many makeup products had on actresses' skin. So, she created a line of mineral-based products that illuminate and improve your features. Everything is cruelty-free, many are vegan, and each have a clear list of all ingredients so you know exactly what is going on and into your skin.
3. Dr. Bronner's Baby Unscented Pure-Castile Soap 8oz. $6.69
We've saved the best for last. This soap is a workhorse, an organic, all-natural, certified fair trade, biodegradable, gentle, effective workhorse (and packaged in a 100% post-consumer recycled bottle). With no added fragrance, no synthetic preservatives, no detergents, no foaming agents AND double the olive oil, Dr. Bronner's Baby Unscented Pure-Castile Liquid Soap is perfect for sensitive skin – babies too (though note it is NOT tear-free!). Also, it's not just for skin; use it to clean up food, dirty dishes, laundry, pets, and more; honestly this one bottle of soap can replace an entire cabinet's worth of cleaning products. More knowledge! Less stuff! Here are the how-to's. Now go forth and spring clean!
