63 per cent of us have sensitive skin, mainly due to cosmetics and our environment and so never has there been a more timely moment to look at the more natural beauty products on the market. Sarah and Jo discuss all the relevant topics including what healing plants to use for your skin type, 10 natural ways to boost your immune system, how to look after your hair more naturally as well as presenting their Green Goddesses, including Alicia Silverstone, Liz Earle and Scheherazade Goldsmith amongst others. And for the latest round of their ongoing consumer survey they recruited over 1050 new testers who report on 44 categories of natural products from miracle creams to suncare, mascara to shampoo. The result is a blueprint for a more natural, healthier way of living beautifully, which is gentler on you and the environment.
