These days, more and more people are becoming cognizant about what they put in and on their body — and for good reason. Silicones, sulfates, formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates, etc. clutter the ingredients lists of a lot of commonly used products, and a lot of consumers aren't into it any more. Because of this, people are making the transition to clean beauty products.

But it can be challenging at times to decipher which products are truly clean. Researching is an exhausting process. And examining packaging and reading every last ingredient on every single product? No one has time for that.

So whether you're gifting yourself or a conscious loved one, we've put together all the best clean beauty products that will make the best stocking stuffers — without any of the B.S.

VIDEO: CLEAN SLATE: Best Clean Body Butters to Get You Through Dry Skin Season

As joyous as the holiday season may be, cold weather makes a lot of people miserable. Thankfully, scented candles are one way to make your home feel warm and cozy, and that's why we've fallen in love with Ruth & Gem's Guava and White Tea fragrance. Our senior beauty editor Kayla Greaves shares that she's been longing (for years) to be back home in Jamaica, so the scent of guava and passion fruit gives her an instant sense of comfort. "Plus, with a blend of coconut and soy waxes and lead-free cotton wicks, I don't have to worry about my loved ones breathing in anything else aside from the candle's gorgeous fragrance notes," she adds.

Start off by using the Salts of the Earth Body Scrub to smooth out skin, then lock in moisture using the brand's Undaria Algae Body Oil.
