Natural & Organic Brands

Whether you’re looking for organic skin care or paraben-free makeup, there are plenty of choices that do as much good for your face as the Earth. We gathered up our favorite brands that use either all-organic ingredients or a mix of natural and organic ingredients.

Safe household cleaners

Household cleaners with harsh ingredients don't only kill germs and get out tough stains. These simple tips will reduce your family’s exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals commonly found in the home.

Toxins from the kitchen

Are you still using an old set of scratched, potentially toxic, non-stick pans? Plastic utensils or storage containers? If you’re ready to make some upgrades, you’ll find few of my favorite healthier kitchen options.

Carcinogenic chemicals

Exposure to chemicals in the outdoors, at home, and at work may add to your chances of getting cancer. Certain chemicals, including benzene, beryllium, asbestos, vinyl chloride, and arsenic are known human carcinogens, meaning they have been found to cause cancer in humans..

We Are The Leaders In This Industry

My name is Mirela Chirica and I founded Accord Media in 2008 to publish Healthy Living with a mission to offer truthful and unbiased guidance to people seeking to improve their physical health and appearance through skin care, hair care, health and beauty products, and salon and clinical treatments. I try to bring a uniquely curious and honest voice to help consumers through my website. Like many other people, I had a bathroom full of half filled jars of things that had promised a lot and delivered little. I decided to get informed and try to be a savvier consumer. Most of the information was so bad, that I ended up doing my own research to teach myself about which anti-aging ingredients worked, which did not and why. Healthy Living is a forum to share as I learn. Our mission is to make it easy for you to ditch the chemicals and replace them with vitamins and natural goodness that’s great for your skin and for the environment.
