Most beauty brands use harsh chemicals to keep your skin acne- or wrinkle-free, and while they may work at first, they are probably doing more harm than good. With all the chemicals packed into the creams, washes, and gels, the environment and your skin are both suffering. Why use a product like this when there are better or equally fantastic products that are made without these chemicals?
With different internal brands, Yes to Carrots, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and Blueberries, Yes To carries products for each and every skin type. From facial cleansers to lip care to hair care, all of Yes To’s products work well to do their job without relying on harsh chemicals. Yes To products are all made using “high-quality organic fruits and vegetables with a special mineral elixir derived from the Dead Sea.” The best part is the way that Yes To products smell – they smell natural, but they still have distinct, refreshing smells.
Burt’s Bees started out a small beeswax candle-making operation – only making a few thousand dollars a year. Now, Burt’s sells body, hair, and lip products as well as toothpaste and items for mom and baby. No matter what you’re looking for – Burt’s probably has it – from acne to body butter. Burt’s Bees is best known for their amazing lip balms for all kinds of lip ailments and in all kinds of flavors. Burt’s is probably the best-known all-natural brand, but don’t worry – they haven’t lost their motivation to make sure all of their products are all natural in exchange for the money – over half of their products are 100% natural and they only use all natural colors.
