My Favorite Things

While I will always encourage you to do your own research and seek out companies you trust, here are some of my favorites. These are the companies I trust and use in my own home, as well as the ones I am willing to put my name behind. 


Please know that if you choose to shop through any of my links, I may earn a small commission off the sale. But also know that my reputation and integrity are of the utmost importance to me—anything you see on this list has been researched well and receives high performance ratings from myself and my family.



Skincare, Makeup, Bath & Body, Hair Care, Kids & Baby Products, Sunscreen. This is my top choice for beauty products that are safer AND high performing. Beautycounter is the leader in the Clean Beauty industry for a reason — they do more than any other company out there to ensure their products are as safe as possible. From sourcing to sustainability to transparency to extensive testing, this B Corps and EWG Verified Company is #1 in my books.  Plus, their Band of Beauty rewards program helps you earn product credit with every purchase, perfect for people transitioning to safer products over a period of time. Check out 3 Ways To Get Involved With Beautycounter!


Branch Basics

Home Cleaning Products. This female-founded company (these three girls are the sweetest!) provides a multi-purpose, plant-based concentrate to clean basically anything in your home — laundry, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. Each starter set comes with a bottle of concentrate and a set of refillable bottles, and every ingredient used has a rating of 1 on the EWG Skin Deep Database. 


Dr. Brite

Oral Health Products. Dr. Brite is a B Corp, EWG Verified, and the products are made in the USA. A woman created the products because her toddler had a toothpaste eating habit, and she realized how many toxic chemicals her child was investing. We use the toothpastes, mouth rinse, fresh mouth spray (my fave!), the kids products, and the whitening products. Everything is just really good.



Nail Polishes and Remover. All of côte’s polishes are created free of the major toxins and allergens that are often associated with nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, and gluten. And yes, they really work! Bring these along with your own safer scrub and lotion to your next pedicure. 



Laundry and Dishwasher Detergent. This is basically pushing the easy button for laundry and dishes. Dropps is a green cleaning company committed to being sustainable and earth friendly. Just pop the pre-measured pods with cleaner ingredients into your washing machine and dishwasher. And I especially love the oxi-boost pods. 

Force of Nature

Love this for keeping our homes clean these days! Grab the Force of Nature Starter Set. It’s like a science experiment! This EPA registered disinfectant kills 99.9% of germs: Staph, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza A, Salmonella, and Listeria. And it’s on the EPA list of disinfectants to use against Covid 19. Enter your email to get 20% off a Starter set and free shipping!



Cleaning Products, Detergents, Soaps, Bath & Body, Hair Care, Pet Care. Two best friends in Texas started this company because they wanted safer products for their newborn daughters, and now this non-toxic and plant-based cleaning and personal care products are gaining popularity and awards.I can only personally recommend the dish soap, which I love!



Clean Perfumes. Phlur is the only company I use for fragrances, because the scents are amazing and I know how much the company does to ensure safety. Phlur is a B Corps, which means they are committed to transparency, sustainability, and doing good for people and planet. They have an awesome program where you can select three scents to sample for $18, then you can use that money towards the purchase of a full sized bottle.


Primally Pure

Skincare, Bath & Body, Deodorant, Dry Shampoo. Primally Pure uses nature’s ingredients to create non-toxic skincare products that support radiant skin, a healthy body, and a happy self. This is my go-to company for safer deodorant and dry shampoo — two products that are traditionally full of harmful chemicals. The face oils and bath soaks are divine, I buy the lip balms by the dozen, and the baby products are super popular. Plus the Everything Spray is wonderful on armpits! You can get 10% off your first order with the code “AMANDA”



Sustainable shoes made from things like recycled water bottles … seriously! And they are the most comfortable shoes in the world. Get $20 off your first pair by using this link!



Nutrition + Convenience = YES PLEASE. Organic fruit smoothies, immune-boosters & more in just 30 seconds. This really cool portable smoothie blender has upped my nutrition game so much! Think water bottle meets Keurig meets Vitamix … but the pods are 100% biodegradable, filled with nutrient dense real food, and turn into a ready-to-drink smoothie in less than 30 seconds. ⁣My favorite blends are Pina Strawberry and Tropical, YUM! Purchase a Starter Set and use the code AMANDA8PACK to get a free 8-pack of blends.
