A Few Great Paraben Free Products For You To Check Out.

July 3, 2007

In reference to my post What Are Parabens And Why Should You Avoid Them, I got a lot of emails asking for good paraben-free products that people can buy for themselves. After looking in our bathroom and online for a little bit, here are some great products that are both paraben-free and not too hard on the wallet:

Avalon Organics Nourishing Conditioner – $7.95 at Avalon Organics, but can be found in a ton of places, sometimes a little cheaper.

Burts Bees Milk And Honey Body Lotion – $9.00 at the Burts Bees Website, but I know my wife gets it for cheaper. Oh, and thanks to the people who commented and emailed when I asked about natural cosmetics, my wife had no idea that Burts Bees had them!

Method Bloq Soap – We normally buy natural glycerin soap, but when a Method product comes out I like to try it. So we tried this soap and it works pretty well and lasts a long time in the shower. $6.00 at the Method site, but we got ours at Target for $3.99.

Tom’s of Maine Deodorant – You can read about it at their site, and I think I paid about $4.00 for it at Wild Oats.

We do have a ton of other natural paraben-free items in our home, so if there is a product you are looking for, let me know and I might be able to recommend something for you!

    need some advice- hubby and I just started going more natural… but hes really cheap.

    We use Method, Biokleen, 7Th generation and vinegar/baking soda for household.

    Now we are working towards body/face- We use Burts Bees shampoo, Toms of Maine toothpaste, and deodrant.

    We are currently searching for conditioner, mascara and body soap. I have done some research and decided to go for paraben free ones HOWEVER I am overwhelmed!

    What brand is best and good for the cost?

    Thank you!!

    Hi Sara

    Thanks for the comments and it’s great you are searching out healthier alternatives! My wife uses Burts Bees Conditioner – the Rasberry & Brazil Nut kind. She loves it! Mascara – I don’t know what she uses, but if you have a Whole Foods or Wild Oats near you by chance you can check out their cosmetic line. While there aren’t any 100% healthy mascaras (that I know of) they do have stuff that is less toxic than regular brands. As for body soap, plain old glycerin bars work great and are about $1.00 or so. You can also try out Dr. Bronner’s soaps (be sure to water them down for body use), as that is what we are using right now. They work great and they smell good too!

    Face soap – I use whatever body soap we have and it works fine. I guess if you have sensitive skin it might be too much for your face, but it’s what I use!

    Good luck!
