Tips on switching to natural products
We hope these tips may help you in your journey in going natural:
1. Simplify, simplify, simplify!
Reduce the number of products that you use and slowly switch one product at a time to an organic or natural one. Also look at reducing the number of ingredients in the products you use such as using oils instead of creams or even making your own products.
2. Learn about ingredients
There are some fantastic online resources that can really help you work out which ingredients are safe for you, your family and the environment. We recommend:
- Chemical Maze app which looks at ingredients in food and cosmetics.
- Safe Cosmetics website - Chemicals of Concern
- Think Dirty app
- EWG - Skin Deep database
3. Change where you shop
Health Food Stores and Organic Stores stock a variety of natural and organic products. Ultimately, we as consumers can make a difference by slowly but consciously selecting products that are good for us and the environment.
