Simple Clean Beauty

By Charlotte Carson

Women use up to 15 personal-care products every day.

Many of these beauty products contain controversial ingredients like phthalates, parabens, triclosan, and preservatives, which have been linked to health issues like allergies, cancer, or reproductive harm. In response, women have started a clean beauty revolution.

Today, many conventional personal-care products contain ingredients that have been shown to disrupt the body’s normal hormone functions.

Our beauty team shows you cleaner products to get these cutting edge looks.
