Before buying an organic skin care or acne remedy, you might want to check the packaging to ensure that it is indeed U.S. Department of Agriculture-certified organic, according to Discovery Health. Whether you are looking for acne treatments or nail polish remover, chances are you can find a variety of truly eco-friendly skin care products, according to “Cosmopolitan Magazine” and “Marie Claire Magazine.” Just be careful not to fall for any “hot” trends, such as fish pedicures, or anything that has to do with animal placentas, warns Discovery Health.
Victoria’s Secret issued its “green” Pink Body line in 2009, according to “Cosmopolitan Magazine.” Not only are the lotions, body washes and facial scrubs truly organic, but also they come in only eco-friendly packaging, down to dye on the labels. Pink Body products are available for all skin types. The Nourishing Body Lotion is a “Cosmopolitan Magazine” favorite and is composed of natural ingredients, like organic cocoa and shea butters.

PlantLove, manufactured by Cargo, is a line of organic lipsticks that are entirely biodegradable. McCartney fans can opt for a wide variety of makeup and skin care options, including acne treatments; the entire line is comprised only of organic ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.
Priti Soy-Based Polish Remover
Using acetone is bad for you, not to mention the planet, according to “Marie Claire Magazine.” This led organic spa owner Kim D’Amato to invent Priti Soy-Based Polish Remover. All ingredients are organic, acetone-free and the packaging is also “green.” Pregnant and nursing moms usually can’t use nail polish remover, but “Marie Claire Magazine” notes that this blend is safe for even expectant moms as well as young children. Also, Priti Soy-Based Polish Remover supports American farming by only using crops harvested from plots within the United States.
