What Makes a Body Care Product 'CLEAN'?

What Makes a Body Care Product “CLEAN”?

When it comes to body care products, it's important to choose products that are not only effective, but also safe and environmentally friendly.  Clean body care products are made with natural, non-toxic ingredients, and that prioritize sustainability and environmental responsibility. Here are some key factors that make a body care product "clean":

  1. Natural and non-toxic ingredients: Clean body care products are made with natural, non-toxic ingredients that are safe for both your body and the environment. Look for products that contain ingredients like organic plant-based oils, organic natural butters, and essential oils, and avoid products that contain harsh chemicals like parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.
  2. Transparency in labeling: While this may sound obvious, clean body care products should always be transparent about their ingredients and manufacturing processes.  Look for products that clearly list their ingredients on the packaging, and that provide information about where and how the products were made.
  3. Ethical and sustainable sourcing: Look for products that use ingredients that are sourced from sustainable and environmentally responsible suppliers, and that are produced using ethical and fair labor practices.
  4. Eco-friendly packaging: Beyond the actual product, to truly be clean body care, the packaging must also be eco-friendly and sustainable. Look for products that use recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable packaging materials, and that minimize waste by using minimal packaging.  Clean Maple products use 100% PCR plastic, made entirely from recycled plastics, thereby reducing our carbon footprint and lessening our impact on landfills.                                                                    
  5. Cruelty-free: Clean body care products should never tested on animals. Look for products that are certified cruelty-free by reputable organizations like Leaping Bunny or PETA.

Overall, clean body care products prioritize natural, non-toxic ingredients, ethical and sustainable sourcing, eco-friendly packaging, and cruelty-free practices. By choosing Clean Maple and other clean body care products, you can support your health and well-being while also contributing to a more sustainable and responsible beauty industry. Remember to always read ingredient labels carefully, and to choose products that align with your values and priorities.
