Eco Beautiful Girls Gift List
Bringing some healthy glam into our girls’ lives can be super challenging, as beauty products are often filled with hidden toxins. We certainly don’t want our mini Wonderwomen to put dangerous chemicals on their nails, skin and hair. What’s a pajama party planner to do?
Pick out a few of these items to empower your own special girl, tween, or teen (and maybe a mom or two), and reduce their exposure to chemicals found in everyday soap, makeup and shampoos. (Always read your labels and double-check questionable ingredients at Skin Deep.) Fortunately, several eco-friendly companies have you covered with chemical-free beauty products, so let’s party.
From Their Tips to Their Toes
Mani-pedi mania abounds, but many nail polish brands contain multi-syllable chemical ingredients that endanger female reproductive health. Try Piggy Paint’s eco-friendly nail polish that’s “natural as mud” (but we swear it’s much prettier).
Their Blueberry Patch is a virtually odorless, hypoallergenic, water-based formula with a durable finish. Paint a couple of coats on your squiggly little one (or let teens get artistic themselves). Did we mention these are the perfect stocking stuffers?
Soak and Soothe au Natural
Who doesn’t love to slather on a refreshing lotion or soak in a luxurious bath? Avoid products with harmful ingredients packed in unnecessary plastic by going DIY. It’s hands-on fun for the next sleepover party, play date, or mother-daughter evening.
Make your own Bath-Time Bliss Soaking Salts, then tuck them into a plastic-free steel ECOdipper tin. When they’re gone, toss the container in your lunch drawer for reuse, or whip up another batch, wrap it up with a sparkly ribbon, and give it to your bestie or for a holiday grab bag gift.
Luxurious Locks Go Green, So to Speak
Regulations regarding hair products are lax, so that yummy looking bottle of scented shampoo may contain dangerous ingredients. Breathe deep, though: Check out Rock the Locks’ slate of fun, non-toxic haircare products, including Lock It and Rock It Hairspray, infused with essential oils and a natural “super fruit complex” that lets you say goodbye to hold-your-nose, chemical-smelling fumes forever. They’re affordable and fun for the whole family.
Finally, gift a naturally beautiful plastic-free brush and comb set from Rhoost made with natural bamboo and bristles to get your little one stylin’.
May you and your loved ones have the healthiest of holiday seasons!
Don’t Forget Your Lips!
Is your eco beautiful girl’s lip gloss good enough to eat? The ingredients should be healthy enough to swallow and 100% natural, but too often makeup contains chemicals that are unpronounceable and unhealthy! Honeybee Gardens Luscious Lip Gloss gives you soft healthy lips -- without toxic parabens and other hazardous chemicals found in common lipsticks. Their non-toxic lip glosses are super-moisturizing and long-lasting, without the usual stickiness of other glosses. Certified organic (plus gluten-free and vegan!) these non-toxic products come in five lip-smacking flavors and hard-to-find neutral shades. Yum!
