Reviewed by Ilya Skolnikoff - Rating: 5.0

Have you been wanting to know what are the healthiest and safest skin care products to use and what are not? Well, now you can find out about this in no uncertain terms. I hope that this list proves helpful to you. Remember that personal care products are individualized so what may be ideal for one person may not be the perfect thing for someone else. One person may have an allergy or sensitivity to certain ingredients while those same ingredients do not cause any reaction in someone else.

Here is an interesting video about sun care I thought you might like:

Body Lotion / Oil: Hauschka’s Rose or Quince Body Moisturizer (or Jurlique), Vitamin E Oil, unscented Shea Butter that does not have tons of other ingredients or preservatives, pure rose hips oil is good. Aloe Vera Gel that has very few ingredients other than aloe vera is good. Most nut or seed oils that are unscented tend to be good, however, immediately after purchasing the oil you should open it and put either vitamin E oil into it, astazanthin (liquid) or lutein in order to preserve the oil and keep it from going rancid.

Oil to Transform Skin: Le Visage (Safe Earth) reduces brown spots, broken capillaries, etc.) Most pure vitamin E oil is good – the more expensive and natural the better, rose hips oil is good, pure Shea butter with nothing added, jojoba oil may be o.k. if you add vitamin E oil to it to preserve it.

Best Cleaners: Health Food Stores or Lifetime Solutions. Focus on using vinegar or vinegar based products or citrus based products made from lemmon, orange or grapefruit. Hydrogen Peroxide is toxic but not too bad if not ingested. Rubbing alcohol is toxic but tends to be somewhat less toxic than ammonia and many of the other cleaners. Fairly good natural cleaning products can be purchased from Network Marketing companies such as Amway or www.equinox-products.com or www.vitasalus.com. The less smelly the product the better. Simple Green is very, very toxic and should be avoided. Clorox Bleach and similar products should be avoided.
