The heat of Summer is most people’s favorite time of the year, but on the flip side, it also brings peak mosquitos and ticks; oh my! Another problem is, like most other products, the bug sprays on the market are super toxic, loaded with risky chemicals like DEET, which, when studied, has been shown to cause brain cells to die!? I don’t know about you, but I would happily take some bug bites over killing brain cells, so today, Organic Bunny is breaking down DEET, why it’s so toxic, and what safer options I recommend instead! So, what is the best natural bug spray, you say? Let’s go!
FOR THE GLAMOROUS GIRL WITH A GREEN HEART.
Found in approximately 24% of our products, including green beauty products, Phenoxyethanol is a preservative to prevent bacterial growth and, for me, one of the best ways to quickly spot if a brand is greenwashing. Sadly, I do see this ingredient used in most clean beauty brands today so it is a hard one to avoid! Of course, using a product here and there with Phenoxyethanol is not something I worry about but when used alongside other disruptive ingredients, collectively over time, that is when things can start to go wrong. So, for me, it is an ingredient I try to avoid as best as possible. Keep reading to learn why!
Oh, July, how I love/hate you. On the one hand, you bring the sun! On the other hand, you bring high heat, which, combined with 4th of July illegal fireworks, brings fires. You would think that we would regulate the use of fireworks, given the traumatic outcome of their misuse; however, somehow, they are still not regulated, and the fires blaze on. Last year, we were evacuated for a fire, and sure enough, many more have again erupted overnight after fireworks, so to help those of you who may be in the same boat, I wanted to share how we prepared for the 2023 Fire Season, naturally, of course! Take this seriously too, as you truly never know when your time will come. Be ready!
Got Dermatitis? Sadly, sometimes I do, too, so I know how frustrating it can be! But, the good news is, every time mine pops up, I have my go-to routine, and it clears up very quickly! Thanks to our in-house Esthetician, Alex, we do have an Organic Bunny suggested routine for Dermatitis, so that is what we will be discussing today. We also just released our first targeted skin care kit, creating a kit that contains all of the items you need to soothe your dermatitis naturally, starting today! Please remember- These are suggestions and tips, not medical advice. Always speak to your Dr. regarding any questions or concerns you may have.
Can you believe it?! I actually put makeup on yesterday! In an attempt to be a better content creator, one of my best friends came up to help me plan a Valentine’s Day photoshoot. Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays, even when I was single; I am not sure why!? I truly am obsessed with all things pink, hearts, love, and sparkle!
Stress, ugh. It’s literally everywhere, and I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for ways to reduce it any chance I can get! We all know by now that CBD is a great option for lowering stress and improving mood; however, I find it hard to remember to take it, especially during the day, so, what has been helping me a ton was finding a truly clean, CBD gummy option as they are so delicious, I actually crave them! When things are yummy, we are far less likely to forget to take them, right? Right!
It’s that time of the year again! Black Friday and lots of holiday shopping. To be honest, I almost did not organize these sales because I feel like they are already plastered all over, but I figured, eh, why not? There are a lot of really great sales right now on some items that I honestly can’t live without. These brands, below, are some of my tried and true, most favorite brands that have helped me really clean up my home and diet; these are the TOP items that I truly cannot live without. I hope you can stock up on the sales you have the budget for, as these are for sure the best prices of the year!
When it comes to our skin, we all aspire to have a firm, glowy, even, smooth, plump and clear complexion but sadly, the way to accomplish that often requires the use of harsh, conventional retinol treatments! When it comes to skincare, retinol is basically the ultimate anti-aging ingredient we all want to get our hands on. Nearly every major cosmetic brand has one and almost every dermatologist and skin-care expert recommends it so, what is it exactly?
I don’t know about you but for me, I love a minimalist makeup look with a polished lipstick as my go-to look; however, the sad truth is that lipstick is one of the WORST offenders when it comes to toxic ingredients. While I do believe that any beauty product we use should be clean because lipstick is something that we actually consume while wearing, you always want to make sure the lip products you are choosing are as clean as possible! Another sad truth is that while many stores try to offer us cleaner options, for me, they are still not clean enough for use on the mouth.
