Yes to Carrots lip butterFavorite: Philosophy's Hope in a Jar moisturizer

BOC Feedback: This cult favorite moisturizer contains two parabens, propylene glycol and triethanolamine.

Suggestion: Swap it for an active natural moisturizer like Arcona Magic White Ice or The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Cream.


Favorite: Burt's Bees lip balm Great choice

BOC Feedback: Perfect. This balm is BOC-approved!

Suggestion: If you're looking for an organic version, try Yes to Carrots C Me Smile organic lip butter.


Favorite: Maybelline stick concealer

BOC Feedback: Contains propyl-, butyl- and methyl-parabens.

Suggestion: As a celebrity makeup artist I used this for years. When I decided to green my kit I switched to Mineral Fusion concealer infused with pomegranate and green tea extracts.
