Cleaning up my Act

I recently wrote a post on greening up my beauty regime you can read it here)

But in this new year I am being inspired by other bloggers and artists and turning my attention to a wide variety of socially conscious beauty.

I, like many others, am resolving to "clean up" my kit and focus my product use and writing on products that fall into one or more of these categories:

  • cruelty free
  • vegan
  • organic
  • recycled/recyclable packaging
  • ethical practice
  • best practice
  • fairtrade
  • parabenand petrolatum free
  • There are NUMEROUS chemical nasties to avoid and I am researaching and learning about them, so will refrain from mentioning until i feel lke i know what I am talking about.  Here are some links to help you further examine harmful chemicals in cosmetics: Top 5 Nasties, Top 10 Nasties, Dirty Dozen

I am looking to mention, learn about and work more with green beauty producs and am constantly looking to upgrade my kit to a cleaner and better ways of being.  Feel free to make suggestions to help me on my journey but from this post on, I will be working with greener products.
