Shopping List: 5 Must-Have Natural Beauty Products

3 years ago

My interest in using natural beauty products has definitely increased over the past few months.

It's partly for health reasons, partly my desire to support companies who are doing good things and putting fewer chemicals into the environment, and also just because I want to use products with yummy ingredients like honey and coconut.

I've begun to explore different, more natural products to replace the go-tos that I've been using for years. Here are a few of my new must-haves.

Biona Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil

Activated Charcoal Soap by Ravenscourt Apothecary

Aveda Light Elements Texturizing Creme

Raw Honey—be sure to buy this locally!

Tea Tree Relief Shea Butter

One thing I'm still missing: shampoo! I'd like to try a nice, relatively natural shampoo that will enhance shine. Recommendations, anyone?

And if you're thinking of taking a second look at your beauty products, you have to use GoodGuide—it's an amazing organization with a site and app that allows you to check the social, environmental, and health ratings of companies and products. Best idea, right?
