After the recent news of Keeping Up with the Kardashians entering its final season, you might be left wondering how you will ever fill the void. No fears! The ladies of KUWTK have kept busy outside of the series. In April 2019, Kourtney Kardashian’s launched Poosh, a lifestyle website where anyone can find ways to live their best life through beautifully curated content. You now have a place to keep you connected and informed on all things the Kardashian/Jenner women are loving. Today, Poosh has over 3.7 million followers and covers all the topics you love. From Health + Wellness and Lifestyle to Home and Entertainment, you can stay on top of everything Kourtney and her sisters are into.

How It All Started

An especially exciting topic that Poosh covers is the clean beauty movement! Back in 2018, Kourtney’s passion for health consciousness was well underway, but she made a big impact by advocating for a change in legislation through the Personal Care Products Safety Act alongside the Environmental Working Group. The act is a bi-partisan bill intended to reform regulation on personal care products. With this bill passed, the FDA will have “the tools it needs to protect the public” from a virtually unregulated personal care industry. 

Kourtney is doing her part to continue educating consumers about making safer, cleaner decisions on beauty and personal care products. Her passion for living a health-conscious lifestyle is shared in many articles and product recommendations on Poosh. One of the many tools used to make better decisions when it comes to beauty products, EWGs Skin Deep® is an absolute obsession for Kourtney’s team, who call it the new go-to ingredient guide!

Without further ado, here are some of Kourtney’s and the Poosh staff’s recommendations on cleaner alternatives to beauty and personal care products, many of which are award-winning and EWG-Verified®!
