Detox Your Beauty Cabinet In 3 Easy Steps by Laura Rudoe

The skin is the largest organ in the body and absorbs up to 60% of what is put on it. Here are some tips from Laura Rudoe, the founder of the certified organic range evolve beauty about how to reduce chemical exposure from beauty products:

1. Simplify your beauty routine and try to use as few products as possible. The average adult uses 10 products a day and is exposed to 126 chemicals, some of which have been found to accumulate inside the human body.

2. Learn about a few key nasties and try to avoid products containing them. Key nasties to watch out for are parabens, SLS/SLES, DEA/MEA/TEA, silicones, mineral oil, phthalates and synthetic fragrances. All of our products are formulated without nasties.

3. Switch to certified organic products*, as these have been independently verified not to contain any questionable chemicals and instead contain high levels of pure, natural plant extracts. This is particularly important for products you use frequently such as shampoo, all over the body such as body lotion, or are likely to ingest, such as lipstick.

* All evolve products are certified organic and natural with ECOCERT, the international organic standard
