Green Lotion

Many consumers are looking for greener products today and green lotion is no exception. There are some guidelines to follow when shopping for eco-friendly skin care products.

*Look for certified organic ingredients - the plants (cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, etc.) were grown without the use of synthetic chemicals that pollute the planet.
*No synthetic chemicals were added - phthalates and parabens are used in many skin care lotions. Not only are these chemicals toxic to you, but they are also harmful to the environment.
*Minimal packaging - look to see if the plastic can be recycled and that the product doesn't come in a lot is excess packaging.

If we all took small, simple eco-friendly steps, what a difference it would make. Take that small step with green lotion. It is healthier for you and easier on the environment.
