My Healthy Beauty Swaps

The Environmental Working Group has a great resource called Skin Deep. It ranks personal care products to inform consumers how potentially toxic their products are. While extensive, it doesn’t have every product out there. This is where the “Build Your Own Report” feature comes in handy.

Using the resource still requires some discernment. Many of the products I use may rank higher than expected because of the potential for allergies to ingredients like aloe. That’s why it’s important to read what exactly in the product is problematic to see if it’s a true health concern for you.

Here are some of the healthy beauty swaps I’ve made recently, thanks to this resource.

Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Brightener Highlighting Stick in Muna (score: 2) / Replacement for: Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil – Pearl (score: 7)

Lily Lolo Natural Vegan Mascara (score: 2 using the Build Your Own Report feature) / Replacement for: Lancôme Definicils High Definition Mascara (score: 5)

KORA Organics Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum (score: EWG Verified, which is their version of a perfect score) / Replacement for: Prescription retinol (score: 9)

One thing that may surprise you is that non-“clean” brands do produce products that rank low. For example, my favorite Lancôme eyeliner scored a 2. That was was good enough for me to keep it in my everyday makeup bag. Generally speaking, I aimed to keep my most frequently used products at a score of 3 or less. My advice in making any substitutions is to start with the highest score items and gradually work your way down.
