3 Easy Clean Beauty Swaps
If you’ve recently made the decision to switch to clean beauty products, congratulations! This is already a huge step in the right direction. That being said, the world of clean beauty and vegan skincare is wide, and with so many options on the market, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you’re on the hunt for a simple, yet effective way to start your clean beauty journey, look no further. Here are three easy clean beauty swaps that can start you on the path to a healthier lifestyle for you and for the planet.
One of the easiest clean beauty transitions you can make involves deodorant! Some scientific studies have suggested that the aluminum content of traditional deodorants and antiperspirants could be having adverse effects on your health, and could even be linked
to breast cancer development. Kaia Naturals, an indie eco-beauty brand known for its non-toxic, cruelty-free, and EU compliant beauty and skincare products, makes amazing aluminum-free charcoal deodorants in tantalizing scents like cold pressed rose, lime mint, and juicy bamboo. These deodorants are just as effective as your favorite drugstore brands, but are free of toxic ingredients that could negatively impact your health.
Another easy clean beauty swap has to do with fluoride toothpaste. Although fluoride has traditionally been touted as an important mineral that helps strengthen enamel and prevent cavities, recent studies indicate that too much fluoride might lead to neurological impairment. Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint All-One Toothpaste is vegan, cruelty-free, and free of fluorides, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, while still keeping your teeth strong, healthy, and minty fresh!
Fancy perfumes might smell nice, but many perfume formulas are full of allergens, phthalates, and a myriad of undisclosed additives that can wreak havoc on your body chemistry, disrupt your hormones, and even trigger serious allergic reactions. If you’re looking to avoid these harsh chemicals, but still want to smell great, give Vitruvi’s Balance Roll-On Essential Oil Blend a try! This soothing, sweet oil blend features notes of lavender, fennel, peppermint, and chamomile, creating a fresh, spa-like scent experience without the harsh additives.
Although switching out three products might not seem like much, just transitioning to clean deodorant, toothpaste, and perfume is the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of clean beauty. What are your favorite clean deodorants, toothpastes, and perfumes? We’d love to know!
