Here at White & Elm, we believe that good for you IS beautiful. And while we believe a clean and beautiful life starts with the beauty products you use, we don’t think it should stop there.
Here are some of our simple essentials to living a clean and beautiful life:
1. Nourish your body from the inside out:
At White & Elm we are big into juicing! If you’re sitting there thinking, “why would I want to drink my food?” that’s fine! Simply stock your kitchens full of whole, organic foods. They will not only satisfy your growling gut, but will also provide your being with the many nutrients that it needs and deserves!
2. Get active!
Even while living a clean lifestyle no one’s body is 100% free of toxins. But here’s the good news: exercise is the perfect way to help eliminate those little buggers! Even better news: You don’t have to spend hours in a stinky gym to do so (unless that’s what you’re into, of course).
We believe the best way to be active is by doing things you love. Here in Colorado, we love being outside; hiking, biking… ever done yoga on a mountain? I highly recommend trying it.
So go find something active that you love to do and go do it! You can thank me later.
And of course…
3. Opt for clean beauty products:
As weird as it can be to think about, your skin really is your body’s largest organ and it absorbs everything you put onto it. That’s why it is so important to use beauty products that nourish your body rather than pollute it.
How can you do that? Pshh, Easy!
Check out our line of good-for-you products at WhiteandElm.com. Everything is made only from natural and organically grown ingredients and is free of artificial fragrances, preservatives or additives and with only 10 ingredients or less, there’s no room for any of those super yucky toxins.

The White & Elm team are passionate about natural and non-toxic, plant-based skin care. We believe that no woman should have to compromise her health for her beauty. Naturally, WE focus on doing right by the environment around us and the environment of our bodies. We proudly participate in the Environmental Working Group's EWG Verified™ program.
While you may be cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, daily. If you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. It is very important to exfoliate your face and body all year round. But after the winter, sloughing away all that dead skin seems even more necessary.
For sure you need to be wearing a daily moisturizer with a minimum of an SPF 15. You also need to look for sunscreens that are labeled Broad Spectrum because this means they have passed specific laboratory testing that shows they protect against both UVA and UVB rays. If you plan to be in direct sun for more than a few hours, please reapply your sunscreen. Also, if you are planning on swimming or sweating heavily opt for a Water-Proof formula as well. It's best to avoid chemical sunscreens altogether because let's face it; we don't want the chemicals we put on our skin to end up in our blood stream. Also, because we don't yet know the impact that nanoparticles will have on our health, it's best to use mineral sunscreens that specifically use non-nano minerals.
