Clean beauty refers to beauty products created using sustainably sourced and organic ingredients. These products are designed to be safe and gentle to the environment, as well as the consumers. Moreover, they are usually packaged in reusable or biodegradable containers, making them a sustainable alternative.
Beauty blogger Lisa Fennessy (@thisorganicgirl) switched to organic products and clean beauty after a couple of personal experiences. Through these experiences, she realized that modern healthcare focuses on alleviating symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of a disease. She decided to take matters into her own hands by choosing clean and safe products that won’t aggravate her health.
Lisa has put her degree in journalism to great use by writing about her favorite clean beauty brands and products on her blog. She tests out various organic beauty products herself and offers excellent recommendations to her readers.
