What Is ‘Clean Beauty’ and How to Participate on a Budget

By Caroline Igo, Editor – CNET, April 10, 2023

The term “clean beauty” has been making the rounds on social media in recent years. The buzzword refers to making informed decisions about the ingredients in your personal care products, since cosmetics and other similar products are not heavily regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Other helpful, free tools are the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and Credo websites. Both give an extensive list of harmful ingredients found in cosmetics and personal care products. Credo doubles as a tool for information and a retailer of all clean beauty brands. Wonder if you own any of the top clean beauty products? Check here
