by Margot White Sunday, June 12
Happy Father's Day!
Whether the guys we love are dads or not, it's a good time to convince them to give up the Old Spice or the Axe and try some non-toxic, natural and organic skincare. Take a good look at the labels of skincare marketed for guys and you'll find an abundance of Big Baddie ingredients including Propylene Glycol, Fragrance, Parabens, BHT, PEG's and more. While making changes can initially be difficult, we know they'll never look back once they do.
Check out these best-selling, natural and organic skincare products at The Choosy Chick that guys love!
