The skin is the largest organ on our body, so it is very important to use a natural beauty routine that does not harm it. Using a moisturizer is a must for everyone, especially during winter months when the skin gets incredibly dry. Finding a safe moisturizer that does not contain harmful toxins should be top priority.
Below are some of the best natural, non-toxic moisturizers on the market that are suitable for Dry Skin:

When used in hair, coconut oil prevents protein loses. Coconut Oil adds a nice shine to your hair without weighing it down. It can also be used as a hair detangler for children.
I tend to find that most over-the-counter non-toxic moisturizers contain of either Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter or Coconut Oil as the primary ingredient. When shopping for a natural moisturizer, be sure to check the ingredients and look for natural ingredients that you know and trust.
