Series Article No 7: Swap YouTube Favourites for Green Beauty Alternatives featuring Akin, Zao, Kjaer Weis and Intelligent Nutrients

Garnier Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother Shampoo - this product is aimed at soothing sensitive scalps but I believe it contains ingredients which would cause irritation. Shampoo is an easy swap and many brands have dedicated products to try and help scalp problems. Check out Odylique, John Masters Organics (Bare range), PHB Beauty (Scent free), Akin, Barefoot SOS, Green People and Weleda.

Cover Girl Outlast All Day Pressed Powder - Many natural brands offer loose mineral powders but there are pressed options. Check out Ere Perez, Living Nature, Organic Pharmacy, Lavera and Zao. You will have to compromise on price as I know Cover Girl is a drugstore brand.

L'oreal Revitalist Cleansing Towelettes - I have previously written an article about wipes, I urge you to consider not buying high street brands because of the environmental impact. Please bin and do not flush! Swaps are available from RMS Beauty, Pacifica, Organyc and Ecocare. Also check out the baby wipe options in your supermarket, often Sainsbury's and Waitrose stock eco-friendly brands. 

Unite 7 Seconds Condition Leave in Detangler - If the ingredients I found online are correct then this detangler contains water, silicone, fragrance and the dreaded allergen Methylisothiazolinone (one of mine!).  You can do a lot better than this, my personal favourite brand for styling and treatment products is Giovanni. Others to consider are John Masters Organics and Intelligent Nutrients.

Nars Hot Sands Highighter – described as 'Peach Champagne' which I did find tricky to match exactly but there are highlighter options from 'Green' brands like RMS Beauty, Inika, Ilia, Lavera, Ere Perez, Kjaer Weis, Tata Harper, W3LL People, Pacifica - this list covers a variety of budgets.

You can purchase the products mentioned from my favourite sites - Content Beauty and If you would like to read my last swap article click here - No 6 - Green Beauty Alternatives featuring Madara, Joik and Odylique
