Top Five: Reading Matter

I am often asked where to start when it comes to knowing and understanding more about the toxic ingredients that sadly make up a large proportion of the ingredients in the majority of beauty products available on the market – I just read some books and did some googling. Simple right?

Finding the right books to read can be a minefield, there are so many out there and so much misinformation. If one of your New Year resolutions was to green up your cabinet and detoxify your make-up bag, then why not start here and check out my top five clean beauty reads…
