Become a More Conscious Cosmetics Consumer in honor of Earth Day

As we celebrate Earth Day this month, there are many small changes you can make to become more eco-friendly.  One way is to change up your beauty routine by using some Earth-friendly skin treatments and products. Greenville Dermatology carries a wide selection of products that are proven to protect and rejuvenate your skin, ranging from makeup to sunscreen. Dr. Miller carefully hand-selects each product available at his practice to ensure the best quality and safety for his patients, and many are eco-friendly as well as beneficial to your skin.

The Huffington Post published an interesting article that lists organic and eco-friendly beauty products and suggests that eco-conscious consumers use the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep cosmetics database. This helpful database gives you access to online safety profiles for cosmetics and personal care products and catalogs 70,000 products ranked  into three hazard ratings (low, moderate, or high concern) based on each product’s ingredients. If you are curious about how your skin care products rank, take a look at the database for your health as well as the environment.

Many of Greenville Dermatology’s skin care products can be found in this database. NEOCUTIS®, VIVITE®, Anthelios, and Institut™ DERMed all have products listed in the low and moderate hazard category for skin.

If you have any questions or are interested in using more eco-friendly products, we are open to suggestions for cosmetic dermatology products. Call Greenville Dermatology at 864-242-5872 to schedule an appointment today.
