I have a long listed guide when it comes to swapping out your not so clean, beauty and body care product. I cover everything from deodorant, toothpaste, lotions, perfume, shampoo - you name it, there's a swap for it. When considering making the switch, it can be overwhelming on where to start, so I've broken my list into 7 sections. Yes, there are 6 other posts covering other body care products and ingredients that you should aim to avoid, along with some of my favorite products or recommendations when making the switch.
