Well here's some news you might be shocked to hear from us: We're afraid of eco-friendly products, too.
Don't get us wrong -- we know that natural beauty products are good to the earth and to our bodies, and the growing evidence about why we should be greening our beauty routines is compelling.

Although there are gorgeous bronzers and amazing makeup-removing wipes in Josie Maran's entire collection, the bestseller and cult favorite is this simple bottle of argan oil. Use it on your hair to smooth flyaways and hydrate ends, as well as on dry skin -- from cuticles to elbows. You can even pat it on you're your makeup to bring it back to life at the end of a long day.
These paraben and preservative-free fragrances are inspired by plants and flowers found in Hawaii. They're a great alternative to traditional, synthetic perfumes.

The products are free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. We recommend keeping "De-Stress" on your desk at all times.
Suki Kramer created her eponymous line to combine her knowledge of natural ingredients and high-tech science. While all of her products are synthetic-free, they contain innovative cosmeceutical ingredients -- which are developed in a lab where chemists and herbalists work together -- blended with organic naturals. This face oil is super-moisturizing, and helps prevent breakouts.
Dr. Hauschka has been around since 1967 -- and it's been completely natural since the beginning. The company's philosophy is centered around holistic health and respecting the earth with ingredients sourced from biodynamic farms and agricultural cooperatives. This eye cream is very hydrating and had one of our editors seeing fewer fine lines after just one week.
Pangea Organics's certified organic body products come in the most sophisticated scents, and their shower gels are so moisturizing you can practically skip lotion. We love the Italian White Sage with Geranium and Yarrow scent. It's more luxurious than you'd expect for a product this eco-friendly.
