    What organic products do you use for face, body, and hair?

    This thread is for those who are into safe organic products.

    Some "natural" products I use:

    -Natural Grooming by Herban Cowboy deodorant
    -Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap as shampoo and body wash - I only wash my hair once or twice a week and don't need conditioner since my scalp doesn't over-dry from too much shampoo
    -"Oil cleanse" for my face - apply a mixture of castor oil and EVOO, scrub off with a wash cloth and hot water

    I've found that most conventional soaps and cleansers are counter-productive. They dry my skin out, and my skin responds by kicking into high-gear oil production, resulting in a part-dry, part-oily mess. Using milder products or methods on a less-frequent basis lets my skin and scalp achieve a natural balance of its own oils. My hair and skin also look better and healthier now than they did when I was using more conventional products.

      +1k on Dr. Bronner's. Awesome stuff! The peppermint one is my fave, but I have been using the citrus wash too this Summer.

        Whenever I use Dr. Bronner's soaps, my bath tub gets really dirty quickly. It is probably the oil in the soaps.

                I use the peppermint Dr. Bronner's for many different things. I can refill my bottle in bulk at the co-op so it ends up being quite cheap. I use it for body wash and face wash (quite diluted). I have used it for shampoo as well. It is quite versatile. I've had a hard time with natural deodorant, so I go the Old Spice route (but no aluminum). I tend to use more natural products around the house, as well.

                  Same here. But I love Dr. Bronner's almond soap. I also use products by Nubian Heritage. Black soap. Shea Butter in the winter.

                    For me Tom's of Maine deodorant and bar soap, and EveryMan Jack face scrub and lotion. Not necessarily organic per se but they omit the really unnatural chemicals. For shampoo and conditioner it's Aubrey's Organics. I have yet to find an organic shave soap that doesn't suck so i stick to my trusty Proraso.

                      Tom's deod burnt the ever-living shite outta my pits. And *then* I read some of the reviews online. LOL, a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle late. - Doh! - I want to say it was a change in their "long-lasting" version, but that could be totally wrong. You ever have any issues with it?

                      EMJ stuff is awesome! I use their shave cream and face lotion religiously. I really want to get some of their deod sticks. I *used* to use their face wash and face scrub (once in a while), but have switched to just using Neutrogena's acne wash (w/salicylic acid) morning and night instead. I also have some of their shower gels (citrus, cedarwood, and sandalwood), but like I mentioned earlier in this thread, I've switched to Dr. Bronner's for that.

                        Interesting, no i've had no issues. I use the calendula version which has a very light scent. I can't imagine what burnt you, maybe your allergic to something in it? did you possible have a scrape or something?

                          Same here, a lot of skin peeling, redness and irritation.
