If you’re thinking of switching to, or have switched to, more natural beauty products, it’s a smart move. Some experts believe our skin absorbs 60% of everything we put on it. Makes you want to examine those labels a bit more closely, doesn’t it?
While natural products have ingredients sourced from nature, organic products have a stricter standard, only featuring ingredients derived without synthetic pesticides, petroleum fertilizers or genetically modified organisms.
If you’re looking to go organic or just want to learn more about what’s out there, we’ve compiled a list of the gurus of green—the best organic beauty blogs. Though many of these bloggers use both natural and organic products, you’ll glean some of the best advice on organic beauty from them.
