At this point, we know that most beauty products we buy from the store have all kinds of chemicals in them. Most of the time we don’t even realize how many negative effects these chemicals can have, often times normal products contain cancer-causing toxins. If you want to check where your cosmetics fall on the toxicity charts, you can check them out by brand name on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database!
Sometimes reading and understanding the labels of all these products is way more difficult than expected so we have a great solution. Making your own beauty products is a great way to avoid nasty toxins and know exactly what it is you’re putting on (and in) your body. Check out these coconut oil-based recipes to create chemical-free, super simple beauty products that are awesome substitutes for store bought products!
