“The Green Beauty Guide” is a must-have book for anyone who wants to become more environmentally conscious and learn about organic beauty products. Even those who already know a lot about green beauty will inevitably learn something new from this incredibly comprehensive guide. From green product recommendations to money-saving tips to a beauty detox regimen, this book has it all.
After delving into “The Green Beauty Guide” it is clear that Julie Gabriel is an expert in the field and has done a tremendous amount of research. All of the information is supported by data and scientific facts, which really proves Ms. Gabriel’s points and makes the book as credible as it is educational. There are some excellent chapters on the nature of skin and the dangers of certain toxins found in commonly used products, which I’ll admit was pretty alarming! I am glad that I now have this invaluable resource that will be put to good use. In the back of the book there is even a list of recommended resources, as well as 100 toxic cosmetic ingredients to avoid (talk about thorough!)
“The Green Beauty Guide” is an informative and practical guide with fun recipes, product recommendations, and important information that has educated me on how to be a smarter, safer and more environmentally conscious consumer.
