SQUEAKY CLEAN - THE GREEN WAY

Isn’t it funny that we wash our face every day (often 2x), but don’t think much about the products we use so regularly? It seems that as long as we feel that our face is clean, that the product has done it's part! Did you know, that many facial cleansers are actually packed with harsh chemicals that can irritate and damage not only your skin, but your health? 

Chemicals like sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), parabens and other harsh chemicals typically found in our store bought face cleaners can actually have long-term effects and an impact on our internal organs, never mind our external complexions. 

All-natural and organic cleansers on the other hand leverage the power of nature’s most potent fruits, vegetables, herbs, and clays in order to dramatically cleanse, repair, and nourish the skin. 

Restore your pH naturally and pamper your beautiful visage with our list of the top  all-natural, 'good-for-you' cruelty-free facial cleansers.
