The Best of Summer Eco-Friendly Beauty


A few months before Parker was born, I met with two gals in the neighborhood for a late breakfast.  One was a friend of mind that I’ve known for years and the other was a friend of hers, Dawn Shand Johnson, a former beauty editor and makeup artist who was in the process of launching a new beauty site, Pink Kale.  She explained that when she was pregnant with her first child she began thinking a lot about what goes into our bodies whether it’s via food or products or other means.  Being in the beauty industry she began hunting for the best products that weren’t just great at what they do, but safe and non-toxic as well.  She’s sharing her favorite eco-friendly products for summer with us today, but hop on over to her site for more tips!
