Great! Thanks!!


I'm sorry I can't offer helpful advice for dry skin. But for your consideration and your little one which I'm excited for you.

Youtube The Story of Cosmetics (2010)

It is better not to use anything with the toxic ingredients in your makeup, personal care, hair, bath, lotions, deodorants, perfumes, baby products. It takes the skin 26 seconds to absorb chemicals into bloodstream.

Toxic, hormone disruptors, cancer causing etc ingredients:
phthalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, PVC, parabens, benzene, chlorine, synthetic fragrances, triclosan, formaldehyde-based preserving agents, nanoparticles, TEA, MEA, phosphates, polyethylene glycol (PEG), quaternium 15, DMDM hydantoin, 1-4 dioxane, bisphenol-A (BPA), alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs)/nonylphenol, BHA, benzalkonium chloride

There are many companies that have products that do not contain these toxic ingredients.

A great extensive list of Green /Natural / Organic company lines — makeup, hair , nailpolish, stores, skin care, animal-friendly/vegan brushes, spas/salons, advocacy, and other resources to read up on.


Also to green with household cleaners and detergents. I like everything I've tried from Honest.com -- their cleaning, bath products for my kids (no, I don't work for Honest.com; just a heaven sent company and one-stop shopping much easier). I have two kids (ages 6 and 9). Been living green since they were born. Just my two-cents. Hope this helpful!


My skin was tremendously dry during both pregnancies, and I used the Made From Earth Aloe Body Lotion on my entire body after showering. No stretchmarks after two babies, and no itching of the dry skin and stretching belly.
