We love our self-care routine. But know what we don’t love? Hurting the environment, rubbing harmful chemicals and plastic on our skin, and using products that hurt precious animals. And sadly, a lot, if not most, of the products on the market do one or all of those things. It is a sad and unfortunate thing that we have to sacrifice the health of our bodies and the world just for a few pumps of face cream.
Fortunately, as we are becoming more aware of what we put in and on our bodies, as well as more careful about the impact we make on the earth, a trend is growing for more wholesome personal care products. When a trend is born, that means more companies will follow suit. One such company that is doing all they can to provide a wholesome personal care experience is Blue Beautifly.
Blue Beautifly is a California-based company whose goal is to foster beautiful and healthy skin and hair. Their innovative products are made out of organic, botanical ingredients that are 100% non-GMO, fair trade, and cruelty-free. This isn’t just a marketing ploy for Blue Beautifly, which sadly is often the case with “socially responsible” campaigns. In fact, Blue Beautifly recently got its certification as a B Corporation. This may sound a bit jargony, but basically what it means is that this Cali company is committed to looking beyond financial gains and considers the wellbeing of employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment when making any business decision. So, you can truly feel good down to your very core when rolling on their all natural deodorant or washing your face with their hydrating cleanser.
We have been living in some strange age where the beauty industry is under some delusion that they know better than our ancestors, and so tell us that we need a million ingredients, most of which are incomprehensible, in order to look good. This is such a fallacy. People have been living on this planet for a long, long time and for a majority of that time, people have been putting things on their skin to make it look and feel better. Long before scientists in a lab came up with artificial colors, parabens, silicone, and the such, people in Persia, Egypt, India, Greece, China, and Africa (where most of our ancestors originated from) were using natural ingredients for their personal care. Blue Beautifly uses ingredients and formulas based on ancient traditions, including a multitude of essential oils, plants, and clays. If it worked for our ancestors, why wouldn’t it work for us?
Blue Beautifly offers a number of products, from face serums to cleansers and moisturizers. They all follow the same ethical standards and each one is packed full of organic, cruelty-free ingredients, so you just have to find the ones that work best for your unique self.
If you are looking for a cleanser to clean out your pores and dispel any potential blemishes, we recommend the Balancing Cleanser. This particular cleanser is made for oily and combination skin types and includes a blend of Aloe Vera Juice, Castor Oil, Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit essential oils. If you have dryer skin, you might prefer the Hydrating Cleanser, which will leave your skin luminous, soft, and supple. After you cleanse, you have the option to follow up with a tonic, toner, serum, oil, or cream, or all of the above. We are particularly fond of the Organic Regenerating Oil Serum which helps accelerate the skin’s natural renewal process because it is never too early to start the fight against aging skin (because you don’t want to end up desperately seeking plastic surgery in 40 years).
In addition to the wonderful facial products, Blue Beautifly also provides some overall skin care products, such as an all natural Leaf Infusion Deodorant, which we love because it is free of antiperspirants that clog up your pores, trapping toxins in your body. It also smells delish, kind of like a green juice made of neem, sage, thyme, witch hazel, rosemary, olive, and aloe vera. If you are new to the natural beauty path, or just need some help picking out the best products, you should check out the Botanical Beauty Bundles they offer. Based on your skin and beauty goals, they have a bundle of 2-3 products that would be perfect to start your journey towards healthier, happier skin, and a healthier and happier planet.
