If you are motivated to use all natural skincare you probably know about the main toxic ingredients you want to avoid. These ingredients are used as fillers and stabilizers in many skincare products, even in products created by brands that use botanicals!

I use Aloe Vera in almost all of my products, from my moisturizers and serums to my cleansers and masques!
