A more conscious, organically beautiful girl's guide to beauty products

In my effort to be more conscious of the products I use on my body, I have found several brands that I like to use. I encourage people try different products to see what works best for you.

I try to find products listed as vegan and that are eco-friendly. I look for products that are color safe, sulfate free, paraben free, biodegradable, phthalate free, and avoid synthetic fragrance. That can be a real challenge

Here is a list of brands that I recommend and use consistently:
Pangea Organics (This brand can be a little pricey)
Sanitas (Also a pricey brand)
Dessert Essence
Bare Minerals
Burt's Bees (Burt's Bees has a great line for men and babies too!)

Brands that I like, but I'm still researching:
I like some of the Vegan Ion and One 'N Only products sold by Sally's Beauty Supply. Not all meet the standards that I look for and I continue to research these as the list of ingredients is still not as natural as the brands I've listed above.

I've purchased mineral makeup from E.L.F. Cosmetics. The line has great prices, but I'm again, still researching the ingredients and this company.

Like many others, I often find products on eBay or Amazon. I am a huge eBay shopper! Here two other sites that I frequent for prices.

Bulk Apothecary
I'm a big fan of Argan Oil. I have found that Bulk Apothecary has the best prices on any oils that you need. I learned of this online store from a friend who makes his own soap. I recently paid $26.55 (including shipping) for a 15 oz. bottle of Argan Oil. This is a GREAT price! The store is now selling supplements along with soap and candle making supplies and other specialty ingredients.

All Star Health
All Star Health has a $5.00 flat rate shipping and great prices. This site has many products to offer including supplements, sports nutrition, weight loss, herbs, bath and body, pet products, and much more.

I hope you find this information helpful. Please share other sites and brands that you like. I'll continue to do the same.

More to come from the mind of ...
