How clean are your beauty products?

Lately, it seems that the cosmetics world has jumped on the organic and natural labeling terms. But, do you really know how clean it is? You’d be surprised to learn that what is labeled is not actually clean.

Recently, we found this free app called Think Dirty. You basically go scan happy of all of your beauty products in your medicine cabinet. It tells you on a scale from 1-10 of how clean or how dirty it is on carcinogenicity, development and reproductive toxicity and allergies and immunotoxicities.

When we scanned our Aveeno Creamy Moisturizing Oil, it came up as a 10, the dirtiest you can get on the meter. Shocking when it’s supposed to have natural oils, right?

A great tool that the app gives are clean options of other products to choose from and one of our favorite brands was on the list… MV Organics!

We now have been trying to use clean products and got the MV Organics Body Oil, Vetiver + Lavender that was listed as a cleaner option. (Meter of 0- the best) With fatty-rich and refreshing oils of grapefruit, jasmine, lavender and vetiver, it leaves your skin so silky, smooth and hydrated. The scent is just lovely and perfect for those winter months coming! Knowing that we are putting cleaner products on our skin just makes it that much better.
