EP02: How to Choose Healthier Body Care Products

Whether you’ve already swapped out some of your products or are wondering why it matters, this episode is a perfect resource to help you detox your skincare products while keeping your sanity in-tact.

There is a lot of misinformation swirling around what it means to be a non-toxic skincare product. And labelling laws don’t make it any easier, with claims like natural, non-toxic, and even organic in some cases that aren’t regulated.

In this episode, Emma breaks down the reason your skincare products should be one of the first things you look at when working to reduce your toxic load. She walks through some common ingredients of concern that probably aren’t on your radar, her favourite label-reading tools, how to read labels without getting greenwashed, and some of her favourite brands.
