There’s more to Father’s Day gifts than just power tools, ties and grilling utensils. Why not treat dad to a dedicated skincare routine that will keep him looking fresh and feeling clean?
The ideal products to give on June 18 will make dad look and feel his best, and give him confidence that their ingredients are clean and safe to use. To help, we’ve compiled a list of 18 EWG VERIFIED® products that meet our strictest standards for your health.
With the EWG VERIFIED mark, you can be assured these products avoid toxic chemicals that pose a risk to public health or the environment, so the man you’re celebrating can enjoy them without worry.
Dad’s skin should get to glow as much as mom’s. Give his favorite cleanser, cream or serum to moisturize, exfoliate, repair and strengthen his skin. Our EWG VERIFIED skin care products will ensure he can enjoy a youthful glow without harmful chemicals. They include:
- Amazon Aware Hydrating Face Cleanser
- Humanrace Skincare Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator
- Talent Triple Action Serum
- NENA Moisturizing Cream
- Alder New York Lip Balm
- WELL PEOPLE Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer
- Attitude Lip Balm, SPF 15
Bath and body
Creating a pamper routine is easy with the use of a few multipurpose products. Dad can enjoy a long bubble bath or a quick soak with the same soap. Ensure dad has everything he needs to keep dry skin at bay with a luxurious body lotion offering whole-body comfort. Products to try:
- Everyone 3 in 1 Soap, Pacific Eucalyptus
- Be Green Bath & Body Unscented Body Lotion
- Avocado Dry Body Oil
- Think Magnesium Deodorant, Charcoal and Sage
- Prima R+R Cream
Shaving and beard care
A perfectly groomed beard or silky smooth shave is essential to maintaining dad’s carefully constructed look. Whether he rocks a beardstache, goatee or clean-shaven face, make it easy for him to refine his style with clean products. As a bonus, some of these also promote nail health:
Adequate sun protection is critical for everyone – including dad – to protect against painful burns and skin cancer. But there are so many products on the sunscreen aisle that it’s tough to choose one that will protect from both ultraviolet A and B rays and have ingredients that are safer for your health. Consider these four mineral sunscreens:
- ATTITUDE Mineral Sunscreen Stick, Face, Unscented, SPF 30
- Beautycounter Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 30
- Babo Botanicals Clear Zinc Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 30
Fragrance is a treacherous word on an ingredient list. Dad wants to smell great but skip the many unknown and harmful chemicals that are allowed under “fragrance” and “parfum” on the bottle.
Consider this product from the brand with the first fragrance from the brand that was the first fragrance to bear the EWG VERIFIED mark.
If that scent isn’t quite right, pick one of the others – the entire line is gender neutral, so you can find one that will suit him.
