Choosing healthy chemical free skin care is so important for an overall healthy body, especially during pregnancy. While it can be almost impossible to avoid every single toxin and chemical out there (especially environmental), it is possible to make healthy choices in the products you purchase.
Avoiding your exposure to the various toxic ingredients commonly used in conventional skin care is an excellent way to achieve true holistic health and help keep you and your baby healthy and safe!
Selecting healthy skin care can be overwhelming, even when considering natural brands. Just because a product is sold in a health food store, doesn’t necessarily mean that each product/company is completely chemical free.
So here are some tips on what to look for…
- Certified Organic
- Fragrance Free
- Paraben free
- Phthalate free
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Free (SLS)
- Petroleum Free
*Tip – Always read the labels, if you don’t know what an ingredient is, take some time to look it up and do some research…. you will be happy you did !
