Allergy-Friendly Non-Toxic Make-Up, Bath & Skin Care

Allergy-Friendly Non-Toxic Make-Up, Bath & Skin Care

As I venture on the journey to find products that are not only good for the environment but also good for my body. They say our skin is our largest organ, we should be aware of what we put on it.

Honestly it’s a pretty new concept for me, and I’m learning all the time. But, the best advice I’ve gotten and I give to others is to start simple, as you need to get more of a product, stop, and do some research and try and find an eco-friendly product that is good for your body too.

When I started to realize that my daughter’s ulcerative colitis was being impacted by EVERYTHING we put on her skin, in the bathwater, in her food, etc. I was on a hunt for products that would not cause further harm! I believe that our choices do effect our health. So I was looking for items to replace the ones that I knew were not so great. If it effects my daughter’s health, that means it effects everyone’s health.

Quick Disclaimer: I get a small commission from the products, if you purchase through my links. Just to be fully transparent, my hope is simply that you are using products that are safe for you and your family.

I have marked products that are…
Gluten-Free
Soy-Free
Vegan
Nut-Free

**None of the products are made in dedicated facilities, so cross-contamination could occur.

Retinol which is in most anti-aging regimes is rated a 9 for carcinogenic properties. The anti-aging line from Beauty Counter uses bakuchiol which gives all the positive sides of retinol but none of the negative.

Overnight Resurfacing Peel
Dairy-Free, Vegan
I’ve never used this kind of thing before, and was skeptical. But it made my skin feel so soft and healthier. The bottle is a little pricey, but it lasts so long. I won’t personally use this one regularly, since it isn’t gluten-free, but I didn’t have a reaction the few times I did use it.
