Wellâ€¦not totally yetâ€¦..So after the whole baby shampoo incident â€“ yes I am still talking about that!Â I went to my local networking luncheon and there was a great speaker who told us about this wonderful site https://www.safecosmetics.org
So for the last few weeks Iâ€™ve been talking to everyone I know and obsessing a bit about checking ALL of my beauty products (and you know me – Â I have a ton of them!)Â It rates your products from 1-10; 10 being the worst in terms of having a lot of chemicals, etc.Â As long as you donâ€™t have all your daily products a 10 you should be find but it is interesting to log on and see that your favorite product is a 9!Â Â So onto my list for the things I have changed â€“ deodorant, liquid hand soap, kids shampoo and many scented body lotions.
Hand soap â€“ most all contain some sort of fragrance so they are a big offender. So I have tried Dr. Bronnerâ€™s Magic soap https://www.drbronner.com and Jason satin soap which is still listed as a 5 but has no Lauryl sulfates or paraben preservatives and you can find it at most Whole Foods.
Deodorant â€“ still love Dove but have also been surprised by Almay Unscented and its effectiveness
Kids shampoo â€“ now I try anything by Burtâ€™s Bee https://www.burtsbees.com
Some Body lotions are still pretty heavy scented but a brand I have always loved is Londonâ€™s Moulton Brown. I think many years ago I got hooked on this line at a NYC hotel.Â They tend to discontinue their items (still crying over ABC shower gel!) so donâ€™t get too attached! Â https://www.moltonbrown.co.uk/
