(The Triangle Trend) — Few things feel as good as beautifying yourself without the risk associated with synthetic products and artificial ingredients. It’s always comforting to know that the product you’re rubbing on your face is filled with ingredients you are familiar with and comfortable with. Thankfully, organic beauty products have been popping up like crazy in retailers and independently-owned businesses everywhere.
Sporting anything from shea butter to almond oil, lavender extract, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, argan oil, avocado oil, and more natural ingredients that are even safe to consume. Because it’s pretty fair to say that if it can’t go in your body, then it shouldn’t go on your body. So here are some local stores that understand that concept.
