Personal care products such as shampoo, soap and deodorant are a part of our daily lives. They can also be some of the most toxic to our bodies and to the environment. Part of living green is ensuring that we use products that are healthy and safe for our bodies, as well as safe for the environment, in terms of what we're washing down the drain.
Enter: Face Naturals. I've been using their products for the past three years, and have never felt better. Their organic, natural products contain no chemicals and are actually effective! The shampoos clean your hair, the lotions leave your skin soft and moisturized, and the soap leaves you feeling clean without any residue. Additionally, you can enjoy the peace of mind knowing that you're not washing any harmful chemicals down the drain, where they end up in rivers, streams, and the ocean after going through the wastewater treatment process. In my case, I know that I'm helping to keep Ebey Slough, the Snohomish River, and Puget Sound a little cleaner.
A few years ago, I decided I'd had enough of the carcinogenic and allergenic ingredients - not to mention plastic microbeads - in the personal care products I had been using for years. It was time for a change. With the help of the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database, I spent countless hours researching alternative products. Many were exorbitantly expensive, and others claimed to be "natural" and "organic" while still sneaking in some of the most toxic chemicals. I finally came across Face Naturals, decided to give their products a try... and I was hooked.

I recently decided become an affiliate and add a page to this blog to share Face Naturals with others. Trust me, I take this blog very seriously and have been careful about not allowing advertisements here. I wouldn't share this company with you unless it was something I really believe in!
