You shouldn't need a PhD in chemistry to shop for clean, green cosmetics.
And none of us wants a bathroom cabinet packed with vials of products that mean better than they work. Luckily, just as she did for the rest of our lives, Toronto green living expert Adria Vasil has come to the rescue with new book Ecoholic Body, fittingly available in ebook form ($14.99) as well as paper ($29.95). Along with everything you need to know about staying healthy and chemical-free, Vasil's done the legwork, testing bucketloads of cleansers, sunscreens, toothpastes and more (the book covers clothing and supplements, as well) so we can make smart choices that work well, too.
Sounds like a great reason to spring-clean my makeup bag. —Kat Tancock
