How To Transition To Clean Beauty Products
Transitioning your makeup and beauty routine from harmful to clean can be a challenging process especially when you’re first starting out. But that’s what we’re here for!
The first step in transitioning to clean beauty products is to understand why you are doing so. Most conventional products are full of harmful ingredients that have been linked to problems varying from mild irritation to cancer. We should aim to use products that have been created with clean ingredients that are proven to be safe. We, at Avvai, believe in 100% transparent clean beauty – beauty backed by scientific evidence so you know exactly what goes into your products. You can find more information here.
Secondly, we encourage you to start researching ingredient lists. You can memorize a few common harmful ones as well so you know to put a product back on the aisle the second you spot a certain ingredient. Some harmful ingredients to start with are coal tar, phthalates, formaldehyde and triclosan.
The next step is to examine your current products and make a note of the ones that are finishing soon. Instead of restocking them, look for clean alternatives to the product. This allows you to make an easier transition into a clean beauty makeup routine and tends to be less wasteful.
Some extra tips:
- Refrain from buying new products without checking the ingredients list first.
- Use websites to check for harmful ingredients. The Good Face Index is a great resource to input the ingredient list.
- Switch out products one by one, giving priority to daily-use products.
