The older I get, the more concerned I am with my health and with all the chemicals we expose ourselves too. I see research after research that demonstrates the negative effects of these chemicals. So, I am starting to explore more natural products when it comes to skin care. I recently learned of a company called Good Earth Beauty.
Good Earth Beauty is an online beauty shop that carries only natural and organic beauty products that aren't tested on animals. The staff personally tests all products that they chose to sell. They carry cosmetics, bath & body, hair care as well as items for babies, pets and more. They also sell gift cards (great idea for Christmas!).
I tried a couple of Good Earth Beauty's exclusive products. The first was Jasmine Exfoliating Body Scrub. I found it to be on the dry side, but just added a bit of water on my loofah and it was perfect. Not only did it do wonders for sloughing off old skin cells, it also did a wonderful job of moisturizing. It is made with Fair Trade Organic Sugar, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia Nut) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil , Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Fragrance Oil, Glyceryl Monocaprylate (and) Glyceryl Monoundecylenate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E). No icky chemicals!
I also tried the Bentonite Clay Detox Soap. I love this soap! It feels silky to the touch once wet and is great for shaving. It makes my skin feel balanced and clean and moisturized. Bentonite clay is said to be detoxing and is frequently used in mud masks to pull the impurities and toxins from the body. I don't know if it does all that, but it sure makes my skin feel wonderful! The soap is blended with lavender, litsea, and patchouli essential oils for a wonderful fresh smell--in fact, I can't keep my nose out of the box while I write this. My only complaint is that the edges are squared off. Rounded off edges are easier to glide over the skin. The ingredients for this are: saponified organic olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter, bentonite clay, essential oil blend.
A really neat thing about this company--shipping is always free! No code needed! They also include free samples with every order. If there is something in particular you would like to sample, you can email them and they will do their best to accommodate your wishes.
