Throughout my search for healthy and eco-friendly personal care products, I’ve tried quite a few that were amazing and nearly as many terrible ones. So I thought it might be helpful to compile a master list of my favorite products that are available on Amazon, in case anyone wants to go on a quarantine shopping spree! 😉
While I’m working towards ditching the plastic bottles, I’m not completely there yet. I’ve included my favorite zero waste products below, but decided to also share a few clean products that I really loved despite the packaging, or that I just haven’t found good plastic-free alternatives for yet. Feel free to recommend any others you’ve tried in the comments below!

Innersense Organic I Create Volume Hair Volumizing Lotion (Hairspray is one of the worst offenders when it comes to containing toxic ingredients, and this is my favorite product for helping my curls retain their shape without stiffening them. While they still use plastic bottles, the company has pledged to use recycled plastic and also become plastic proactive by collecting 150% of their annual plastic output! Read more here!)
Makeup: To learn more about my favorite eco-friendly and toxin free makeup and skincare products (not available on Amazon), read here! I’ve transitioned to this company for my facial moisturizer, day cream, and sunscreen as well, because their products are amazing and come in eco-friendly packaging.
ACURE Seriously Soothing 24Hr Moisture Lotion | 100% Vegan (Read more here about how to recycle any ACURE products through TerraCycle!)
Earth Mama Belly Butter (This is amazing as a body lotion, even when you’re not pregnant!)
It can feel so overwhelming to begin searching for products from scratch, so I hope these recommendations are helpful in that process. I will continue to update this post as I discover new products!
Let me know if you have specific questions about anything listed above, and I’d be happy to share more about my personal experiences with them.
