It’s Earth Day!  What better day is there to green up your beauty routine?

Green products are organic formulas that are free from ingredients like # GMOs (genetically modified organisms), parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes and triclosan.  Additionally they contain certified organic ingredients.

Sustainability and eco-friendly products utilize environmentally sensitive methods, including energy efficiency, recyclable and biodegradable materials.

But beware just because a product claims to be natural, doesn’t mean it is organic.  Be sure to read the label and check for official seals from legitimate organizations.

Check out some of our best in green picks for skin and hair.
