Clean beauty is the latest buzz word in cosmetics and make-up, but what does it mean? Clean beauty products do not contain any nasty toxins and all ingredients are listed on the labels. The difference between clean beauty products and organic, natural or green products is the former are completely without toxins. Certain organic, natural or green ingredients can be toxic and therefore harmful to health.
