Go au naturel and still keep your clothes on with Jergens, Green Beaver, Upper Canada Soap and Supersmile!

It's becoming easier to go natural if that's your thing - not THAT natural, we still want you to wear clothes, but some of your beauty products are shedding potentially harmful ingredients to bring you something a lot closer to nature.
Jergens Naturals - 400ml - $7.99 - has three new formulations and a new larger size - Ultra Hydrating has 95% natural authentic desert botanicals to alleviate the driest skin within one use, jojoba oil to enhance skin's barrier function and maintain a healthy moisture balance, agave nectar to soothe and maintain healthy looking skin and cactus extract to nourish and enrich skin.  Skin Renewing has a blend of 95% natural potent antioxidants and moisturizers that restore skin's lost elasticity in just two uses, grapeseed oil  to relieve distressed skin and replenish skin's moisture barrier, blueberry and pomegranate extracts to help treat dryness and flakiness. Soothing Soft has an infusion of 96% natural moisturizers and rich emollients that relieve itchiness and sooth dryness in one use, yogurt to soften skin and rebalance natural pH levels, chamomile to help soothe irritated skin, soy extract, a natural oil source with high concentrations of vitamin E to promote healthy looking skin.  Available at your local drug/mass retailer.

Green Beaver - Splendicious Lips - Lip Gloss - $6.99 - Is the very first certified organic lip gloss.  It comes in natural lustrous mineral and fruit pigmented colours and contains Canadian organic cranberry and carrot seed oils to soften and condition lips with a rich long lasting shine.It has an organic berry flavour, is vegan and gluten free.  It's free of chemical dyes, artificial flavours, petrolatum, silicon and synthetic moisturizers, parabens or other chemical preservatives.  Available June in natural health stores across Canada.

Upper Canada Soap - Naturally Body Butter Balm - $14.99 - made with 100% natural ingredients and a blend of moisturizing butters and essential oil extracts.  It's extremely portable, so you can just throw it in your purse ready to do battle against anything that might dry up during the day including:  cracked heels, dry elbows, chapped lips, dry cuticles, parched hands and anything else that might need a moisture boost.  You can even use it to tame hair fly-aways or groom your eyebrows.  You have to appreciate multi-tasking like that!  Available at The Bay and Sears or you can go here to see where to buy online.

Supersmile Toothpaste - 1.75oz - $13 - 4.2oz - $21 -Here's good news if your a veggie or a vegan - Supersmile toothpaste contains no glycerin.  The only glycerin you will find in their products is in the whitening accelerator - and that glycerin is kosher so we are covering all our bases here!  I never thought of toothpaste as needing to be vegan or kosher so this is a real eyeopener for me!  You can buy it online, or go here to find the store nearest you that carries it.
