Ever since I started out on this nontoxic journey in November, I've used every medium at my disposal to try to spread the word. So, when my wonderful friend, Melissa Wood approached me a few weeks ago about doing a beauty video, I jumped at the opportunity. Not enough people know about the lack of regulation in the cosmetics industry and so many of us have faith that these companies will do the right thing and make our safety the priority. Sadly, that's not the case. I believe it is every consumer's right to know exactly what is in the products they buy, but until we reach that point, we need to be our own advocates and become more conscious consumers.
The app we are using in this video is called Think Dirty; it's an excellent resource, although not totally complete. EWG's Skin Deep website is also great if you want to know more about specific ingredients. We hope you find this video useful, and if there are any questions you want to ask, feel free to leave them in the comments section! Xx

You may have heard about Manuka’s many health benefits, namely aiding in digestion, boosting immunity, and soothing sore throats, but it can actually help with things like acne, eczema, and dermatitis as well.Read More

Five months ago, when I was faced with the harsh reality of what was really in my makeup products, I was devastated. That may seem like a strong word to use when talking about beauty products, but I’ve always used makeup as a way of expressing myself and I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that sentiment. Over the years, I had tried hundreds of different products through work, and just my own general fascination. I had finally reached a point where I had all my go-to products. But when I learned that many of these products contained things like parabens, talc and even lead...Read More
