by Natalie Decleve · April 21, 2014

    News flash – it’s just as important to be aware of what we put ON our bodies as what we put in them. So while most of us know to steer clear of GMO’s when it comes to our food, what you may not realize is that they’re also present in a lot of beauty products. Many popular bath, body and makeup items also use other dangerous toxins like parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petrochemicals, all of which have been linked to health issues and scary diseases including cancer. Yikes! Luckily, sites like Birchbox and Sephora now offer ways to shop products based on their ingredients, so you don’t have to go blind reading each label yourself. But to make it even easier to rid your beauty routine of cancer-causing chemicals RIGHT NOW,  we’ve rounded up our 16 of our favorite toxin-free products. What better time to go natural than Earth Day?
