The Clean Beauty Giveaway


It’s time to come clean, about your beauty routine. So many of us put great effort into living a healthy lifestyle – we eat our seasonal spring veggies from the farm, we practice yoga, we do cardio, we blend our green smoothies – but what about our skin? Our skin is our largest organ and it definitely deserves the same attention.

You absorb up to 60% of everything you put on your skin.

Not to scare you – but regulation on beauty products here in the US isn’t really rawkin’ it. In the US, there is no governmental task force inspecting chemicals and ingredients used in personal care items. Seriously, no one is looking to make sure your moisturizers, serums and makeup are safe for use. So ingredients like aluminum, found in antiperspirants, have free reign to run through your body, even though they’ve been scientifically linked to certain cancers, endocrine disruption and alzheimer’s disease. Yikes!

However, that’s not the case in other parts of the world. In Europe, over 1,300 toxic substances are banned from personal care products. In the United States, only 11 ingredients are prohibited by the FDA, with the last US cosmetic law being passed in 1938. So that means we need to take charge + do the research ourselves. Can’t rattle off all of the internationally banned substances? Us either!

That’s why we love Copal Clean Beauty – our friend + founder Jennie Fresa has done the work for us, creating a curated collection of new & noteworthy clean beauty brands for women nationwide. Copal was born out of a deepened desire to help all women make smarter choices with their cosmetics.

 

4 steps to transition to clean beauty

Thinking it’s time for you to make the change? Why not start here:

  • Simplify your beauty products and learn which ingredients to avoid.
  • Get informed. Download 2 helpful resources that will help you determine the safety of your products before you buy them: ThinkDirty and SkinDeep.
  • DIY: There are many products that can be made right at home. If you’re on a budget or if you like to get crafty, check out Mountain Rose Herbs on-line.
  • Prioritize: It can be very overwhelming to switch all of your personal care products all at once so don’t try it! Start with your skincare (cleanser and moisturizer). Then, your makeup (foundation and lipstick). Next body care: change your soap and deodorant. Hair care and other household items can come late.

    I would love to find a good clean facial moisturizer that also has sunscreen! I feel like there are several that I’ve tried that have either made my skin break out or left my face really greasy feeling.

    I would love to switch out my store bought deodorant for something natural because I know the chemicals are not good for my body or the environment.

    Hi there all! Clean living has been on my mind for a long time now. I have started making small changes for my family and have made some strides in nutrition and cleaning. I would love this opportunity to try some clean beauty products, a topic I haven’t broached yet for lack of time and knowledge. I think I would like to start by using a cool DIY recipe I came upon through Essential Oil representative on Instagram @siplyoily. https://instagram.com/p/BfcPi_4ASqc/

    I’ve been making my own deodorant for over two years and am totally on board with getting the rest of my routine clean. I cannot deal with the fake scents, so a new face cleanser would be a great next step!

    I would love to have a cleanser that is easy on my face..nothing harsh

    The ThinkDirty app is an eye opener! I would love to start with an effective, healthy moisturizer.

    I’m eating clean now but I would like to add a clean moisturizer and deodorant. Clean inside and out!

    I’d love a lotion that I feel good about, for me and my kiddos. 🙂

    Probably would have to say my facial scrubs..I have acne prone skin due to hormones. So I really try to minimize face products used.

    I’d really love to find (and use!) natural acne products that actually work! I hate having to choose between clear skin (and nasty harsh chemicals) and natural products (and breakouts).

    a whole some body wash is so important to me. start the day off fresh!

    I would love to switch to a clean product for acne spots/circles under my eyes. I haven’t found anything yet that’s been super effective and am desperate!

  14. Donna C Doll-Yogerst

    Would love to switch over my fish oil supplements
    Tend to give me stomach cramps
    Omega 3 is so important.
    I’d love to try something different
    Thank you for this opportunity

    I’d love to find the perfect primer because I hate having oily skin which causes my face to break out and others cause my skin to be extremely dry which leads to my skin cracking when I go outside in the cold. Healthy looking and radiant skin would definitely help improve confidence!!
