10 Super-Effective Clean Swaps

Ready to Switch up Your Beauty Routine and Go Clean?

Let’s make this the year for a paradigm shift from traditional to clean beauty, with all of its amazing textures, colors, scents, and performance potential. Change rarely happens overnight; that’s why we started off by introducing some of our best-loved products (and staff picks). Warning: You won’t be able to resist getting your hands on them all!

1. Clean Formula Exfoliant

Acai Pulp Facial Scrub is formulated with all-natural ingredients, including superfruit infusions that will leave your skin feeling soft and glowing. With no harsh chemicals, preservatives, or fragrances, this facial scrub works to smooth away bumps, flakes, and dead skin while also restoring essential vitamins and antioxidants. You can feel it working its magic as it sloughs away any dirt or grime, leaving you with a beautiful glow!

Acai Pulp Facial Scrub

This powerful, all-natural face exfoliator has the potential to give you a beautiful and radiant complexion! With crushed organic acai berries providing essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidant components like Vitamin A & C – this concentrated nutrient-rich formula can help bring out your skin’s natural glow.

For best results, make sure to use it on wet skin (the more water you add in the process means less harsh abrasion) and be amazed at how quickly your pores become deeply cleansed.

2. Clean Formula Deodorant

Taking into consideration the sensitive nature of our armpits—being so close to lymph nodes and needing daily shaving—it is more worrying that conventional deodorants include aluminum, endocrine disruptors like parabens, and phthalates, alongside synthetic fragrances. This one ingredient can conceal hundreds of potentially dangerous components from view.

Ursa Major’s Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant is the pinnacle of long-lasting, powerful aroma protection. This compact and stylish tube fits in any bag for on-the-go convenience without compromising strength—this deodorant can hold up to even your most intense workouts or stressful office days!

Formulated with botanicals, plant-derived starches, clays, and essential oils that absorb sweat while combating odor themselves; you can trust Ursa Major’s newest clean deodorants to be just as effective as conventional ones.

Ursa Major Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant

When we put this amazing, creamy deodorant to the test with intense hot yoga classes, intensive cardio workouts, and hectic workdays, it surpassed our expectations. Loaded with natural odor-fighting ingredients, it kept us feeling wonderfully comfortable and fresh all day long. Crafted from 100% naturally-derived elements, its soothing formula quickly absorbs excess moisture while protecting your delicate underarms at the same time!

3. Clean Formula Mascara

We are not comfortable with the idea of using potentially hazardous substances such as coal-tar combustion products, preservatives, parabens, phthalates, and plastics near our eyes. That’s why we carefully source natural pigments from black tea and cocoa in addition to other naturally derived ingredients for our mascara formula that will make your lashes impossibly long and fluttery while giving them an intense black finish.

Limitless Mascara

Our favorite mascara just got better: it’s ultraluxe, hydrating, and free of harmful chemicals! You won’t believe the intense black color that a single coat provides; your lashes will look glossy, voluminous, and defined.

Prepare to be amazed by luscious eyes you’ve never seen before! Transform your lashes with natural pigments from black tea and cocoa for outrageous volume, lift, and curve that will leave you in awe. This lash effect is limitless, without any clumping or smudging!

4. Clean Formula Tinted Lip/Cheek

We adore the glossy shine and flattering, warm tint our lips get when we use a super-hydrating balm. Unfortunately, standard lip balms are often full of petroleum, dyes, and plasticizers that can be harmful if ingested. To keep your lips looking fabulous without compromising on safety, try 100%Pure’s all-natural balms made from luscious fruit pigments combined with shea butter and cocoa butter for extra nourishment!

Fruit Pigmented® Lip & Cheek Tint

This all-natural blush and lip tint is crafted with maximum pigmentation and nourishing shea butter, cocoa butter, vitamins, and antioxidants to help you age gracefully. Its subtle color complements your natural lip tone for an effortless beauty that can’t be compared!

Plus, the ergonomic stick design effortlessly contours around your lips for a comfortable application every time. So get ready to wow everyone with vibrance no one will believe comes naturally!

5. Clean Formula Shampoo and Conditioner

Let’s face it: conventional hair care products are often loaded with chemicals that can harm the quality of your locks. When you switch to natural alternatives, however, not only do you reap the rewards of being free from parabens and preservatives but also enjoy a superior conditioning effect delivered by oils, butter, and plant extracts.

Many common ingredients used in traditional beauty brands (such as silicones and polymers) may provide an aesthetically pleasing look without actually improving the health of your hair! For this reason, we strongly recommend exploring purer options like our luxuriously formulated line, which will leave your tresses looking healthy and shiny beyond compare!

Deep Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

This incredibly formulated kit is designed to give your hair the ultimate care it deserves! It deeply hydrates and rejuvenates strands with its luxurious blend of aloe, biotin, rose water, and coconut oil. Not only will you get healthy-looking locks that are bouncy but also radiantly shiny too. The lightweight formula keeps moisture in check without making your hair heavy, so you can enjoy stronger tresses all day long!

6. Clean Formula Self-Tanner

It can be hard to give up self-tanner, even though many conventional formulas contain potential toxins, such as parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. This one is a full-on miracle: it’s a clear solution that turns into an easy-to-blend gel and leaves the best natural color. Plus, it never transfers—not even the tiniest bit!

Moisturizing Self Tanner

Suntegrity revolutionized the tanning industry with its all-natural lotion, which is packed with beneficial extracts like Goji, Acai, Mangosteen, and Noni as well as nurturing organic oils and youth-promoting antioxidants. Not to mention that it provides a healthier alternative than real tanning! Enjoy an unparalleled pampering experience by using Suntegrity’s sunless tanning lotion for your next glow-up.

7. Clean Formula Skin Treatment

Traditional face products are often loaded with potentially hazardous chemicals and synthetic thickeners, all of which can irritate the skin. Instead, clean, nontoxic moisturizers contain higher concentrations of beneficial ingredients that truly nourish the skin while avoiding any irritating additives.

This Rose Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a miracle worker, earning rave reviews from those with breakouts and more mature or dry skin. It utilizes rejuvenating rose hydrosol, soothing calendula, and plumping hyaluronic acid to restore your ideal balance—the results are always incredible!

Rose Hyaluronic Acid Serum

It’s simple to understand why this oil has created such an avid following. This luxurious serum is balanced with rose hydrosol and hyaluronic acid, restoring youthful elasticity and bounce to your face. Instantly quench dry skin with its light gel texture, soothed by the calming infusion of chamomile and calendula botanicals. Noticeably softer than before, you’ll see a glowing complexion as it beautifully melts into your skin after application.

8. Clean Formula Body Lotion

Body lotion offers far more coverage than the average face cream, so it is important to be aware of the ingredients used in these products. After all, whatever you apply to your skin will eventually end up in your body! The European Union has taken it a step further and prohibited over 1,300 components found in beauty products; whereas the FDA has only banned 11. Using clean and nontoxic lotions should be at the top of everyone’s list when making personal care choices.

Choose a clean lotion and benefit from its positive effects on your skin. This one is crafted with nourishing oils, plant extracts like botanical hyaluronic acid complex, panthenol and strawberry to give you healthier, more hydrated skin rather than just a temporarily smoother texture from polymers or silicones.

Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Body Lotion

Pamper your skin with this vegan, luxurious cream that instantly hydrates the entire body. The panthenol in the product protects against moisture loss and prevents cracking, while its creamy texture provides a glorious silky feel without any greasiness. Its luscious scent will make you want to slather it all over again! Ideal for those who have dry or sensitive skin – the perfect any time of the year.

9. Clean Formula Body Wash

Standard body wash can lead to the absorption of hazardous ingredients, endocrine disruptors, and other toxins by way of two pathways: The skin easily absorbs anything you place on it if wet, plus airborne exposure through shower steams.

In comparison to harsh surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium Laureth sulfate (SLES), and ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS), goop’s aromatic body wash is formulated with plant oils and adaptogenic extracts that both cleanse your entire being – interiorly and externally!

As you rub the velvety lather into your skin, an energizing and aromatic aroma is released that can easily help to wake up even the sleepiest mind. Inhale deeply for a moment of tranquility amidst the morning hustle. Allow yourself to fully relish in this luxurious experience with your eyes closed and simply be.

Body Polish

Restore your skin’s natural glow with this invigorating body cleanser that is infused with the delightful aroma of Earl Grey. It quickly exfoliates and polishes away dullness, leaving behind soft and smooth skin.

Coconut sugar combined with ginger root extract nourishes your skin further as jojoba oil, sunflower oil, and other moisturizing ingredients work together for an oh-so-touchable experience. Cleansing both mind and body has never been easier!

10. Clean Formula Sun Protection

Chemical sunscreens contain some of the most destructive ingredients in cosmetics. Oxybenzone and octinoxate are two commonly used chemicals that can disturb your body’s endocrine system and lead to coral bleaching—so much so, Hawai recently banned them specifically for this reason!

Instead of chemical sunscreen ingredients, mineral SPF formulas (double-check that the active ingredient box on the back is only made up of zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide) rest atop your skin as a physical barrier to UVA and UVB rays.

Not only are these clean, coral reef safe, and gentle enough for a baby’s bottom, they take just a little more time to spread evenly into your complexion, but it’s well worth it! The cream serum from 100%Pure that we swear by gives an especially glowing look and hydrates beautifully too.

Tomato Lycopene SPF 20 Moisturizer

This nourishing moisturizer is the perfect blend of a super-hydrating day cream with SPF coverage and a potent serum. Its lightweight formula offers full protection from UVA/UVB rays alongside antioxidant protection to shield against smog, radiation, smoke, and other environmental toxins that generate harmful free radicals. Plus, lycopene derived from tomatoes provides an extra boost for your skin!
