You can now find organic skincare products everywhere, from your neighborhood market to the corner drugstore. By opting for organic products, we feel confident that we use products that don’t contain chemicals that could potentially cause serious health problems in the future.
Moreover, when it comes to choosing our food, a natural and organic choice makes perfect sense. The food is broken down by our digestive system, and the liver flushes away harmful toxins. However, when we put chemicals on our skin, up to 60% of them may enter the bloodstream and build up in our bodies. Thus, using chemical-free skin care products (natural and organic) for our skincare routine makes perfect sense.
Just like you nourish your body with organic food, your skin deserves care with organic skincare products since your skin is the largest organ of your body. Many non-organic skincare products out there include an astonishing amount of scary chemicals. From petroleum waxes to formaldehyde to parabens (chemicals linked to cancer) to an ordinary lotion might contain quite a toxic mixture.
But our certified organic skin care products can quickly cleanse tone, exfoliate & moisturize your skin without using any harmful artificial chemicals or additives. So, quite unsurprisingly, more and more people are switching to organic skincare products.
If you’re still using non-organic skincare products, it’s time to reconsider. Here, are a few reasons why everyone should consider using organic skin care products:
You probably won’t recognise most of the ingredients in a Non-organic skin care product. These products include synthetic, human-made chemicals such as mineral oils, sodium laurel, Laureth sulfate & toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Recent studies have also revealed that they can contain mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, and other chemicals that can cause skin irritation, hormone imbalance, organ toxicity, and even cancer with long term use.
Now, pick up a bottle of any organic skin care product. You’ll probably recognise most of the items there. Organic skincare products are derived from plants and other naturally occurring ingredients.
More importantly, organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. So, you can be sure that your skin is absorbing only real, natural ingredients that aren’t harmful. Plus, these are cruelty-free products as well.
Organic skincare products are less likely to cause allergic reactions, irritations, or inflammations as they don’t possess any chemicals. If you still have an allergic reaction by using organic products, it would most likely be due to a natural ingredient like peanuts or strawberries, which are easier to identify.
Organically grown plants contain a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. And since they are grown without pesticides and herbicides, their organic ingredients are free from that contamination, which means the same for your skin & body.
Furthermore, almost 95% of the ingredients or contents of an organic skincare product are active ingredients. On the other hand, in synthetic skincare products, only 5 to 10% of its contents are active ingredients.
The chemicals or synthetic ingredients found in non-organic products can be fast-acting, but they cause harm that cannot be seen, and they are also invasive. Their chemical elements may provide instant gratification and visible results, but it mostly only helps you aesthetically by smoothing out wrinkles, removing sunspots & diminishing blemishes.
With prolonged use, these chemicals tend to damage & weaken your skin as your body tries to cope with these foreign substances. Consequently, oxygen exchange to the skin is reduced, which causes premature aging and increased risk of developing sunspots.
By using organic skin care products, rest assured, you get the real nutritional benefits from its ingredients. Natural organic ingredients such as coconut oil, Aloe Vera, Honey & Shea butter, for instance, are known to moisturize, soothe, nourish, and promote smooth skin. Plus, natural skincare products are always gentle on your skin and won’t harm you in the long run.
Since organic products only use naturally grown ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides & fertilizers, they never leave a harmful footprint on the planet, particularly in soil, water, and air. By using natural products obtained from organic farming, you’re helping to minimize your environmental impact and support the sustainability of our environment.
