While we strive to become more health conscious about the things that we consume in our bodies, many of us find it hard to find beauty products that can match the same organic goals that we try to implement in our everyday lives.
Just like we eat a salad instead of takeout, we should know if our favorite beauty brands follow the same memo. However, did you know you determine your favorite clean beauty products by looking at your zodiac?
Venus, representing the planet of beauty, guides us toward fashion and can help us find the perfect combination for our skin and beauty collection. Clean beauty products can be determined by beauty brands advertising their products as organic, non-toxic, and plant-based. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of popularity, it has become almost impossible to decipher which product contains harmful ingredients.
Suppose a beauty brand categorizes its makeup as a clean beauty product. In that case, they are indirectly saying that its product is free of 15 primary ingredients found in non-organic beauty products, which are parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate, cyclic silicones, polyethylene or polypropylene (microbeads), aluminum salts, formaldehyde, hydroquinone, PEGs, triclosan, talc, mineral oil, petrolatum, formaldehyde, and toluene.
Now that all of the technical stuff is out of the way narrow down some of your favorite clean beauty products and see how they match your zodiac sign.

In addition to Capricorn’s need to be luxurious, Glow Recipe prioritizes its beauty products to contain antioxidant-rich fruit extract that gives your skin an ever-lasting glow.
