Lotion

3 ways to Green Your Lotion

Conventional lotions contain petroleum-based chemicals that pollute the air and water during manufacture and disposal, and may pose health problems to users. Lotions made with certified natural, plant-based, and organic ingredients keep those nasty chems off of your skin and out of the environment. To up your green impact, also look for cruelty-free products that are not tested on animals, and choose lotions in recycled or minimal packaging.

  1. Choose organic lotion and natural body cream

Another brand that I LOVE is California Baby -- their face creams are 100% pure and are NOT just for babies.
