A Guide to Clean Beauty and DIY Beauty Recipes to Try at Home!

As parents, we always want what is best for our children. It is our responsibility to keep them healthy and safe, and we do so by taking precautions with things like car seats, baby-proofing our homes and vetting every babysitter we hire. Unfortunately, there are many parents who do not realize that there are health risks with the everyday products we use on our kids. 


Many personal care products like shampoos and soaps contain ingredients that are potentially toxic. This is a scary thought considering our skin can absorb upwards of 60% of what we put on it. To make matters more concerning, the current laws do not require cosmetic and personal care companies to receive FDA approval, and they do not have to disclose every ingredient that they use. While it used to be difficult for parents and every day consumers to find products that contain safe ingredients and worked effectively, it’s become a much simpler task thanks to the clean beauty movement.


This movement has helped bring an increased awareness to the mainstream about the potentially harmful ingredients in our everyday products. Clean beauty products are thoughtfully created by companies and are produced without toxic ingredients, and are appearing more and more commonly on the shelves of major retailers. 


If you’re interested in learning more about what companies produce clean beauty and better-for-you products like organic and vegan, take a look at this guide to clean beauty from the team at Hola. There’s also some super simple DIY beauty recipes so you can make your own products at home and have full control over the ingredients you use on your skin!
