It’s already your go-to, one-stop-shop for everything from paper towels to pasta, so it should come as no surprise that Target is home to a standout selection of beauty products. But did you know that there’s also an extensive array of clean beauty products to be found in the aisles of your favorite megastore? While the idea of “clean beauty,” doesn’t necessarily have one universal definition, it generally refers to products that are free of potentially harmful or questionable chemicals, and utilize more naturally-derived, rather than synthetic, ingredients.
To make things easy for you, Target has even delineated their own category of clean beauty. Any beauty or personal care products that get the store’s ‘clean’ stamp of approval are formulated without: phthalates, propyl-paraben and butyl-paraben, and sodium laureth sulfate. That’s a mouthful yes, but basically the takeaway is that for anyone looking to minimize the amount of chemicals in their beauty routine, this is the way to go. While there’s no shortage of options to pick from, these eight picks represent some of the best of Target’s clean beauty offerings, ranging from basic necessities like body wash and deodorant to skincare and makeup. Not that you needed one, but consider this (yet another) reason to make a Target run ASAP.
