It’s not so much what’s in your beauty regimen that matters, but what’s not. We’re looking at you parabens, phthalates and sodium lauryl sulfate. That’s why the following editor-tested cosmetics are made of all-natural ingredients that forgo hard-to-pronounce chemicals for organic botanicals found in nature. And because Earth Day is this Sunday after all, the sale of any of these products benefits such causes as polar bear preservation and water conservation. Meaning you’ll not only look out of this world, but you’ll also be changing it.
