What goes on your skin, goes in. 

We don’t want living a non-toxic and eco-friendly lifestyle to feel like a chore or overwhelming. Having personally used this simplified list of non-toxic skin care products for me and my kids, I can assure you, this is EVERYTHING you need! 🙌🏼

*I’m neither a scientist nor a doctor. This information is based on my personal experience, research, and opinion. You should always consult a healthcare professional before making any changes to your current regimen or if you have questions.

As you may have seen, we announced a new non-toxic series! Every week we’ll be sharing a helpful guide to replacing products in your home with the best non-toxic products on the market.

Psst…we’ll be giving away one of EVERY product to TWO winners once our series is complete! 🤩


Why skip traditional skin care products?

Here are just a few of the chemicals commonly found in traditional skin care products:


  • 🛑 Benzophenonecan disrupt the function of many tissues and organs including skin, kidney, brain, endocrine and hematological systems. Highly toxic to marine life. 
  • 🛑 Methanolwhen absorbed by the skin, can result in adverse effects in the eyes and central nervous system.
  • 🛑 Mineral Oil a by-product of the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline. Locks skin from absorbing moisture from the air, clogs pores, and can cause more skin dryness.
  • 🛑 Petrolatum long-term exposure can lead to clogged pores, pneumonia, allergies, and infections.
  • 🛑 Phthalates – can impact your natural hormones and lead to serious health issues such as lower fertility, development issues, and a higher risk of cancer.
  • 🛑 Propanolcan cause local adverse effects such as eczema, ulcers, skin rashes, desquamation, and erythema.
  • 🛑 Sodium lauryl sulfatecleansing agent and foam booster that causes dry skin, irritation, and allergic reactions such as eczema and dermatitis.
  • 🛑 Synthetic Fragrances, “Parfum”, or “Fragrance” – may cause headaches, breathing difficulties, cardiovascular and neurological problems, mucosal irritation, and contact dermatitis. Higher risk of cancer.

Below are the BEST non-toxic and natural skin care products that are safer for you, your home, and the environment:

  1. ✅ Best Lotion: Everyone Nourishing Hand and Body Lotion
  2. ✅ Best Soap & Shave: Dr Bronner’s All-One Hemp Pure-Castile Bar Soap
  3. ✅ Best Hand Sanitizer: Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer
  4. ✅ Best for Detoxing: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
  5. ✅ Best Face & Body SPF: All Good Zinc Butter Sunscreen

1. Best Lotion: Everyone Nourishing Hand and Body Lotion

Everyone Nourishing Hand and Body Lotion 2-Pack – $25.48 (regularly $29.98)


How to save: Get up to 15% OFF with Subscribe & Save on Amazon or look for a local stockist near you.

This gentle lotion is hypoallergenic and safe for every skin type including babies. The formula is light enough for your face, but moisturizing enough for your hands and body. Everyone Lotion is EWG Verified, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. Plus, if you opt for a scented lotion they only use the purest essential oils and organic botanical extracts – i.e. no synthetic fragrances.

The company is committed to doing better for your skin and the planet too since every bottle is made using 100% recycled material and packaging. Speaking of the bottles, I love the generous size of each bottle which is sure to last you for quite a long time!

To recap, here are the top 5 reasons why you should switch to Everyone Body Lotion:


  1. ✅ Plant-based ingredients
  2. ✅ Certified Gluten Free
  3. ✅ 100% pure essential oils & organic botanical extracts (only in scented lotions)
  4. ✅ Numerous Certifications including Cruelty Free, Certified B Corp., & more.
  5. ✅ A company dedicated to a Zero Waste Mission

Important: Preservative-free lotion doesn’t exist since it contains water. To keep mold, yeast, and bacteria from growing, preservatives are necessary to extend the shelf life of lotions. I chose this lotion because it has the safest preservatives for your body. If you want a truly clean and preservative-free moisturizer there are many oils or body butters you can choose from. Keep in mind these types of products may result in a thinner and slightly oilier product. 


2. Best soap & shave: Dr Bronner’s All-One Hemp Pure-Castile Bar Soap

Dr Bronner’s All-One Hemp Pure-Castile Bar Soap – $4.99


How to save: Use your Target RedCard to score 5% off.

A toxic-free bar of soap is your best option since they don’t contain synthetic preservatives, thickeners, or foaming agents like liquid soaps. It will also leave the smallest footprint and our top choice is 100% biodegradable making it your most eco-conscious choice too.

Just like their hand sanitizer, this bar of soap is Certified Organic and uses Certified Fair Trade Ingredients. To add to that, it’s also an EWG Verified product. This Dr. Bronner’s bar soap comes in many toxic-free aromas including unscented too. It’s gentle for all skin types and moisturizing making it a great choice for shaving as well.

To recap, here are the top 5 reasons why you should switch to Dr. Bronner’s Bar Soap:

  2. ✅ 100% Biodegradable & Plastic-Free
  3. ✅ Hydrating
  4. ✅ No synthetic preservatives, thickeners, or foaming agents

3. Best hand sanitizer: Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer

Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer – $4.79


How to save: Get the best price on this product with a Thrive Membership or check your local stockists to possibly score it for under $5 per bottle.

The only ingredients in this hand sanitizer are fair trade organic ethyl alcohol, organic peppermint oil, organic glycerin (sourced from organic soy), and water. On top of that, Dr. Bronner’s works with farmers to implement climate-friendly regenerative organic practices to build healthy soils, reduce erosion, and sequester atmospheric carbon.

The organically sourced glycerin allows your skin to absorb moisture from the air keeping your hands hydrated after each use. While I believe hand sanitizer should be used in moderation, I find this bottle to come in handy for kids’ sticky hands, at concerts, while on public transportation, at the gym, and so many other places where soap and water may not be readily available. As a bonus, it can even be used as a safe air freshener, too!

Detoxing your skin is so important to remove impurities, toxins, pollutants, and dead skin cells clogging your pores, and odor-causing bacteria. There are many products on the market, but this is the most powerful and safest product of all to cleanse, treat, brighten, and soothe your skin.

The 100% natural calcium bentonite clay is the only ingredient in this product which comes from volcanic ash and contains numerous skin-friendly substances.  It’s known as “the world’s most powerful facial”. 🤩 When mixed with organic apple cider vinegar it becomes even more effective and is safe for every part of your body including hair.

5. Best Face & Body SPF: All Good Zinc Butter Sunscreen

All Good Zinc Butter Sunscreen – $9.99


How to save: Subscribe & Save and pay just $8.99.

It’s all good, baby, baby. This tiny tin is small but mighty! A little bit goes a long way – one reviewer stated it lasted her 8 months with daily use. 😱 This sunscreen is completely odorless, lightweight, hydrating (but not greasy), water resistant for 80 minutes, and provides 50 SPF. More importantly, it’s completely safe for your body and certified Reef-safe so it won’t harm our precious marine life either.

It’s formulated with 25% zinc oxide and 4 organic ingredients – Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Calendula Flowers infused in Organic Jojoba Oil, and Vitamin E. Zinc oxide is the best active sunscreen ingredient because it covers the entire UVA and UVB spectrum by itself and has the most consistently effective absorption capabilities. It goes on white but rubs in clear quickly and easily. Plus, we love the reusable tin.

  2. ✅ Goes on clear
  3. ✅ Reef safe
  4. ✅ Travel-friendly & reusable tin container
  5. ✅ Numerous certifications including Climate Neutral & Leaping Bunny Certified
