To keep or not to keep, that is the question. You’ve already swapped out your jeans for shorts, Winter coats for breezy tanks, and boots in favor of open-toed sandals. But what about your everyday beauty products? With Summer almost here, it’s time to give the ol’ heave-ho to some of your traditional staples in favor of some new, all-natural ones.
Traditional deodorants and antiperspirants are filled with synthetic and chemical ingredients, use artificial fragrances and dyes, and clog your pores. Our natural, plant-based Cream Deodorants keep you fresh and dry all day long, are 100% aluminum-free, easily absorb into your skin, and best of all, they won’t stain your clothes.
PLUS! Amazon Prime users now get free two-day delivery on our deodorants.
While DEET has been deemed “safe” for humans, prolonged exposure to this chemical can lead to side effects including headaches, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and shortness of breath. Ooph. Toss out your usual DEET-laden bug spray for milk + honey’s Mosquito Spray. This DEET-free repellent uses pure essential oils, like lemon, eucalyptus, and cedar oil, to ward off pesky mosquitoes and is also safe for pets and children over the age of three.
Don’t skimp on the lip protection this Summer. Our newest lip product, Lip Butter No. 58, deeply nourishes your lips and contains active ingredients such as organic shea fruit butter and cocoa butter to heal your lips, while also protecting them from harsh external elements (ahem, like the sun!).
Conventional sunblocks use chemicals like oxybenzone to help protect your skin. However, this toxic ingredient has been linked to hormone disruption and can cause cell damage, which could lead to skin cancer. Swap your traditional sunscreen for Supergoop!’s sunscreen. It’s gluten-free, paraben and synthetic fragrance-free, and offers broad spectrum protection — meaning it protects from UVA, UVB, and IRA rays.
Eco-Tan, an Australian-based self-tan lotion, offers you a glowing bronzed look without the skin damage. Formulated with organic shea fruit butter as well as coconut, avocado, and rose geranium oils, this 100% natural, certified toxic and cruelty-free is the first tanning product in Australia to be certified organic! As if that’s not enough to make you toss out your old tanning oil, all of Eco-Tan’s products are free of parabens, harmful chemicals, and synthetic fragrances.
Many nail polishes use harmful ingredients like dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, and toluene. These three chemicals can have serious side effects like developmental and reproductive issues. Substitute your old polishes for Spa Rituals vegan, five-free nail lacquer.
milk + honey’s nourishing Gentle Body Wash No. 14 is free of triclosan, formaldehyde, and parabens! That’s right — our calming, effective body wash is infused with antioxidants and a relaxing blend of essential oils, which hydrate gently and are ideal for those with sensitive skin and babies.
