Self-care products are among the most popular Mother’s Day gifts for moms. After all, hardworking moms deserve the chance to slow down and pamper themselves with lavish products. Still, some moms are harder to buy than others, especially those who prioritize clean, toxin-free, and eco-friendly beauty products. And, even for moms who haven’t yet entered the world of clean beauty, it’s nice to think more and give her a gift that supports her long-term health and is also kind to the planet. However, knowing what to look for when it comes to clean beauty products can be tricky. After all, green washing is common in the beauty industry, and products that claim to be “all-natural” aren’t always so clean. The following list includes clean beauty products that live up to their name and make great Mother’s Day gifts.
