Deodorants:

Body Soap:

  • Dr. Bronners All One Soap – An absolute staple in our homes. Comes in great scents and can be used for the entire body. You can also use it as a detergent and home cleaner if needed!

Anything without sulfates, sulfites, parabens, heavy metals. 

  • Acure Great reasonably priced hair care products with no harsh chemicals, can be found at most whole foods.
