I read a great article in the latest issue of Marie Claire about how skincare line creator Tata Harper started her company. Her dad was diagnosed with cancer and the doctors at Mayo Clinic wanted to look at all the skincare products he was using.

I’ve heard skincare products can contain toxins and carcinogens but it was compelling to read that doctors told Tata Harper’s dad to ditch all the toxic skincare products as part of his treatment regiment.

I’ve been using organic, non-toxic shampoos, conditions, body lotions, and other skincare products for the kids – as well as started using non-toxic dishwasher detergent, dish soap, and laundry detergent. But I haven’t been so diligent for my own skincare products.

So here’s where I’m starting:


  • Trader Joe’s vitamin C facial lotion – which I’m giving to my husband. He currently uses baby lotion on his face. It makes his skin soft but it’s not an organic line and doesn’t do anything for preventing wrinkles.
  • Dr. Bonner’s 18-in-1 hemp peppermint pure castile soap – apparently this can be used for everything from shampoo, body wash, carpet cleaner, floor cleaner, hand soap, and even mouthwash (diluted, of course). I’m planning to use in the shower as body wash for myself and the kids. California Baby is getting way expensive.
  • Trader Joe’s hand soap – I was using the Method brand and thought I was in good shape but after reading the label more closely I found their hand soaps contain sodium laurel sulfate.
  • Trader Joe’s household cleaner – I need a spray bottle for cleaning up kitchen messes and the dining room table.
  • I just ordered moisturizer, serum, and eye cream from Ole Henriksen. It’s supposed to be a great natural line of skincare. I’ve heard great things about Juice Beauty too – I may try them next.

Next, I’m looking for natural, non-toxic make-up. Do you have a make-up line that you love? I want to know. I’m looking for a replacement for my Mac pressed powder and eye shadows.

  1. Ooo, I’m almost done making this switch. Makeup and deodorant are the only changes I have left, and it’s TOUGH! After I’ve been wearing an all-natural deodorant for about 3 months now, my husband finally came out and told me I smelled like the F train on a summer day. Not good.

    Yeah, it’s tough…
    all these contemplations……
    all these healthy options are not affordable for a single Mom like me…. I buy my skincare at Aldi.
    Cancer, here I come.

    I recently made the switch from MAC to Aveda. Their tinted oil free moisterizer is great and has decent coverage. For days I want more coverage I use their pressed mineral foundation over it. Until recently, I was also using California Baby on my 3 year old. I just switched to Honest.com – the Jessica Alba all natural/organic line. I love it! They bundle their products (skincare and houshold) for 5 products for $35. $6 for a large bottle of detergent, shampoo, lotion, sunscreen, etc is a great deal. However – $6 isn’t such a great deal for hand or dish soap – I’ll continue to get those from TJs and refill their cute little bottles! I also find their products much more moisterizing than the CB line. Anyway – they just did a webcast and said they are working on an all natural/organic makeup line. I can’t wait.
