Due to loads of health issues in the house, including asthma, allergies, eczema, and just wildly sensitive skin and sinuses I have spent the past seven years searching for the safest skin, hair, and cleaning products.
I refer to the EWG’s Skin Deep Database as often as possible and try to avoid artificial fragrances, gluten, sunflower seed and nut oils (except coconut), dairy, and too harsh chemicals. I’ve tried countless products, spent countless hours on research, and have gone through thousands of dollars to figure this all out and thought it would be neat to write up a post that I wish I had previously.
I’ve found that my local health food market has many of these items and while they are a bit more expensive than they would be online the local store guarantees all their products, so if something doesn’t work out it can be returned. I also use Thrive Market a lot.
Here’s a big ol’ list of products we have been using consistently for years. I hope it helps.
There may be lots I have missed here so I will add them as I remember! If you want to chat about this at all feel free to reach out on Twitter 💜
