In today’s podcast episode, I’m talking with Lisa from This Organic Girl.
Lisa is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to making the switch to non-toxic products, from skincare and makeup to hair care. Today, Lisa shares the one ingredient she always avoids in body products, if there’s a standard for natural and non-toxic products and what various labels on skincare products actually mean, her favorite places to find non-toxic products, her skincare routine, and why she ditched hair dye and her journey to embrace the gray. Today’s episode is packed full of practical tips and inspiration.
There’s a lot of product talk in today’s episode, from hair products to anti-aging skincare products. I’ve linked all the products discussed in today’s episode under “Show Notes” (below).
