10 Reasons to Swap Your Drugstore Beauty Products

3 min read

Are you tired of drugstore beauty products that don't work well or leave you wanting more? Maybe they’re lacking in quality or are causing breakouts. In this blog post, we will break down 10 reasons why you should swap your non-organic drugstore beauty products with higher-quality, organic alternatives - and how to get started. 

The first step is to figure out what products you want to swap. Take some time to think about the beauty products you use every day and write down a list of the ones you love (and the ones that didn't work). This can be daunting, but don't worry! If you're not sure where to start, try lip balm first. It's inexpensive - switch from your petroleum drugstore lip balm to Eco Lips  organic lip balm and let your lips thank you! Look for a way to save on Eco Lips balm at the end of this blog. 

Here are 10 good reasons why swapping out your drugstore beauty products for organic products is a good idea: 

  1. Organic, non-toxic beauty products have better ingredients than many drugstore beauty brands. This means they're less likely to clog pores and cause breakouts. Ingredients such as parabens, BHA, fragrance, and PEG compounds can even disrupt hormones and lead toxicity problems within the body
  2. Organic products are made with natural ingredients, which is way better for your skin than synthetic ingredients - and better for our planet! 
  3. Many high-end natural beauty brands offer samples or travel sizes, so you can try them out before you buy them. This is a great way to find the products that work best for you without spending a lot of money. 
  4. Organic beauty brands are often cruelty free, which means they don't test on animals. Look for the Leaping Bunny logo when shopping for cruelty-free products. 
  5. Purchasing higher end products can be more affordable than you might think. You can often find great deals on quality products if you look for them. Many companies (like Eco Lips), run monthly specials if you sign up for email. 
  6. You'll be helping to support small businesses, Fair Trade practices, organic farming, and entrepreneurs by swapping your drugstore beauty products for higher-quality alternatives that are carefully curated and responsibly manufactured. 
  7. Organic, non-toxic beauty products often last longer than drugstore beauty because you don't have to use as much per application. 
  8. Many organic beauty products are multi-purpose and can be used on other parts of your body (for example, our lip balms can be used to tame flyaways, restore cuticles, and more). This makes the purchase worth it and more versatile. 
  9. Many organic beauty products come in beautiful, recyclable, or compostable packaging. You don't have to feel guilty about tossing out a beauty product when you've finished using it. Eco Lips features 100% plastic-free tubes that don't contribute to pollution - win! 
  10. You can often find beauty swaps at your local beauty store, co-op, or farmers market, or on a company’s website.   

When you make the switch to organic beauty products, you're not just getting a better product - you're also voting with your dollar for companies that share your values. Did we convince you yet? We love beauty products that are good for our bodies, the planet, and people.
