As we enter the new year, clean skincare has never been a hotter topic than it is right now! More and more people are on the hunt for products and brands that prioritize transparency, and create products that are free of harmful chemicals.
This is an especially pressing issue for many menopausal women, as their maturing skin is in its most vulnerable state– clean beauty has the potential to revive aging skin and improve its health from the inside out to reduce the undesirable signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and more.
Fortunately, all of these things can be avoided when more informed decisions are made in regards to purchasing clean skincare brands in place of toxic and harmful skincare products.
So, What is Clean Skincare?
Clean beauty and skincare can be defined in a lot of different ways, really– it is healthier alternatives to chemical-heavy products, products that impact the environment in a less negative way, the utilization of organic ingredients– but at large, it is the avoidance of harmful chemicals, as these things can be dangerous and have a lasting impact on our bodies and our health.
You have likely heard several warnings about parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, and countless others, which are all packed into so many popular products available on the market today.
This is why it is so important to support brands that are loud about their commitment to clean skincare, because you know for a fact that your skin’s best interest is always at the forefront of their products.
The Conscious Beauty Collective
If you are someone who is in the market for trying out new clean beauty brands, look no further than the Conscious Beauty Collective! It is composed of women-owned indie businesses with products ranging from skin cleansers, and moisturizers, to a wide range of haircare and cosmetics.
