Clean Beauty San Diego

What is Clean Beauty?

Clean beauty is a term that is used to describe products that are made without harmful ingredients. This can include products that are free of synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and other harmful chemicals. Clean beauty products can also be made with natural and organic ingredients.

There are many benefits to using clean beauty products; they can be better for your skin and health, and they are also more environmentally friendly. Clean beauty products are also often cruelty-free, meaning they have not been tested on animals.

3 Tips to Cleaner Beauty

If you are interested in transitioning to clean beauty products, here are a few things you should keep in mind:

Research the ingredients on the label

In order to find the products that are right for you, it is important to research the ingredients on the label. Not all products may be up to your personal standards, so it is best to find out as much as you can before making a purchase.

Start slowly

To avoid potential overwhelm, it is important to switch out one product at a time. This will also give your body and skin time to adjust to the new products.

Get to know your body and skin

In order to determine which product is right for you, it is important to get to know your body and skin type. This includes understanding your skin concerns and what ingredients will work best for you. Take this skin type quiz to learn more.
