Green Your Routine with Natural Beauty Products

When it comes to cosmetics, hair and body care, the average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her body every day. With drugstore brands and guilty pleasure makeup essentials containing loads of chemical ingredients, we can find ourselves lathering up with a lot of mystery.

There is minimal regulation of body care ingredients—while the European Union and Canadian government have banned over 1,300 body care ingredients, the United States has banned only 11. There also continues to be no regulations for the terms “green” “natural” or even “organic”. While these terms carry weight in the grocery aisles, the FDA does not standardize these terms for body care items.

At Lakewinds we have strict standards for the ingredients we allow on our shelves, so you can stress less, and find some truly green products. Whether swapping out your whole fall routine, or taking baby steps towards reducing unfamiliar chemicals in your life, our team of Wellness associates is passionate about safe products that work wonders, without all the mystery.
