Radiate Beauty from the Inside Out
from the Inside Out
Roll out the red carpet, because it ’s time for our annual Best of Natural Beauty Awards. We tested a wide range of clean beauty products, picked 50 of our favorites, and organized them into easy- to- access categories that marry the best of nature and science.
An indispensable guide for buying and using natural personal care products
Too many beauty and personal care products are described as natural on the label when they are anything but. In fact, “natural” may mean nothing more than the addition of botanical extracts such as aloe vera or chamomile. Lurking behind this all- natural facade are chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate ( a harsh detergent and skin irritant) and propylene glycol ( used in antifreeze). That doesn’t sound pretty, right? Fortunately, there are many wonderful— and incredibly eff ective— alternatives to both pseudo- natural and defi nitelynot- natural beauty products.
Here are our 50 favorites. They’re all free of chemicals and irritants commonly used in conventional beauty products. That means you won’t see something like aluminum chlorohydrate in deodorant or parabens in shampoo. Instead, you’ll fi nd advanced formulations that marry the best of nature and science. And because we believe that nutrients play a big role in hair, skin, and nail health, we’ve included our favorite beautyboosting supplements as well.
