Long before it became a trendy Hollywood lifestyle choice, Alicia Silverstone embraced veganism. She’s meticulous about what she puts inside her body and on her skin.
“Beauty starts with the internal. I look my best and I’m glowing because of the food that I eat. You can put anything on your skin but if you don’t eat clean, it’s never going to show through your skin. When you eat this way, you glow,” she said.
One of her most-beloved items is made by Garden Apothecary. “They have a yummy toner mist spray,” said Silverstone.
Now, Silverstone has launched MyKind organics, a line of organic supplements and vitamins. (Remember to check with your doctor for personalized advice and guidance before taking any medications or supplements); her newest launches are the Elderberry Immune Syrup and Golden Milk Powder Recovery and Nourishment. She also wrote a parenting book called “The Kind Mama,” and stars in the series “American Woman,” on the Paramount Network.
If you’re also looking to live a more eco-friendly life, or thinking about veganism, here are some products, outside of her own line, that Silverstone suggests.
Health and wellness
Silverstone’s advice to consumers: “Be conscious of the products that you do use. I only use all natural products — from the cleaning supplies in my house to the laundry detergent I use to wash my clothes.”
Eco Nuts Wool Dryer Balls, $25, Amazon

This popular, eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets cuts down on drying time, is free of chemicals, releases essential oils to make laundry smell great and can be used over and over again.
Eco Nuts Organic Laundry Detergent, $37, Amazon
“You use the balls over and over again and they’re so much more eco. There’s so much less packaging involved,” she said.
Unger Microfiber Variety-Pack All-Purpose Cloths, $8, Amazon
Silverstone was a big fan of Zabada Clean, an Austrian-based company that’s no longer in business. So we found these equally effective and chemical-free cloths. “I use this for cleaning,” she said.
Eating clean cleared up Silverstone’s skin. “I used to have really bad acne. I changed my diet and my cystic acne went away. I had such bad acne. Oh, it was so sad. It just went away. The dark circles went away,” she said. But, she still uses some skin care products.
Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask, $65, Detox Market
“This mask is really nice,” said Silverstone.
Tammy Fender Roman Chamomile Tonic, $60, Dermstore
Silverstone is a big fan of toners and this is one of her go-tos.
100 Percent Pure Powder Blush, $37, Amazon
“Everything I put on my skin is all natural,” said Silverstone.
