On the Market: The Honest Company
by Keyaira Boone
The company's selection of personal items includes lotions, shampoos and conditioners, body oils, and sunscreens. I am always on the lookout for a sunscreen that isn't packed with senseless chemicals to toss in my weekender bag so I will definitely be giving this a try this season at the Jersey shore.
The company offers a nipple balm for breast feeding moms. This product includes olive oil and aloe to soothe the skin and since the ingredients are all up to the standards held for food so there is no need to stress about wiping the balm off prior to nursing, Nipple balm also doubles as a great lip balm. Read about a writer’s at Marie Claire experience with it here.
There's also a belly balm for moms to be.
The effectiveness of natural deodorants that are free of antiperspirants and harsh elements like aluminum has been debated over the years and now the Honest Company is providing hypoallergenic options in a variety of scents including lavender vanilla. These can also be used as an all over body spray. Recently LoveBrownSugar contributor Fatima has added an aluminum free deodorant to her natural beauty routine see her video about it here.
