Whether switching to organic produce or driving a hybrid car, going green is not only for the earth-friendly, but for today's health-conscious consumer. But what about the latest movement--green for beauty? Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Courtney Cox Arquette are turning organic products into the hottest beauty trend. Thanks to this amazing new beauty guide, The Green Beauty Guide, readers can now learn the look-gorgeous "green" secrets that the rich and famous employ.

Hairsprays, makeup, lotions, perfumes, soaps, shampoos and so many other beauty and hygiene products contain chemicals that are harmful to our bodies. The Green Beauty Guide has all the answers about which beauty products to use, what organic really means in the beauty industry, and why organic is a better choice for overall appearance. Written by a registered nutrition specialist and creator/owner of a new organic skin-care line, this beauty bible recognizes that women spend billions of dollars collectively each year on products that make them look good...yet may not be good for them or the environment. The Green Beauty Guide is the elixir! Readers will discover:

* What marketing buzzwords like 'Dermatologist tested,' 'Allergy Tested,' 'Non-Irritating" and 'Hypoallergenic' really mean

* Dangerous skincare ingredients to avoid

* The difference between natural, organic, and biodynamic and why it matters

* How to shop for the best organic beauty products without spending a fortune

* The simple truth behind sun protection and what you need to protect your skin

* How to save beauty dollars by making homemade cleansers, toners, and moisturizers

Loaded with some good research and information but not so many recipes.
The recipes that are included may may be a bit harder to make in some cases.
Not sure I agree with all the recommended products listed in this book.
