future_natural.jpg O.K. So I know it’s really important to try and “go green” and I really do what I can. I recycle, I don’t drive a car, I bring my own bags to the grocery store, etc. But I’m just finding it hard to switch out my beloved beauty products for new organic and natural brands.

If the above sounds at all like you, then you must check out – a website fully devoted to educating and inspiring people about how they can make a difference. With ten sections of natural and organic beauty products you are sure to find a suitable replacement for your not so eco-friendly favorites. The site explains that everything you apply to your skin is absorbed directly into your body so it is important to use products that are effective and not harmful. Did you know that nail polish is a version of automobile paint and is full of dangerous toxins?

Each product has a description of its main ingredients and how beneficial they are. If you aren’t sure of what an ingredient is, there’s a glossary too. I’ve already added a few items to my cart. Noting the myth that organic products means high prices is definitely not true. I’ve found Alima Satin Matte Eyeshadow to use as an everyday base color for only $8.50, way less than my usual brand. Suki Lemongrass Cleanser, a futurenatural favorite that will leave your face smelling delicious and Savon de Marseilles Organic Body Lotion: Lavender perfect for helping you relax before bed.

Don’t take my word for it though. Log onto the site yourself and find out how you can Live Well. Do Good. And Look Gorgeous.
