When it comes to the term ‘organic’, people mostly think according to the lines of their food. And it makes perfect sense since what you ingest will determine your lifestyle and most probably, your longevity. However, most people forget that our skin is a porous organ that also allows elements in and out of our bodies. That said, pause and consider the products that you applied to your body this morning. The perfume/cologne, makeup, deodorants, and the list goes on and on. Can you say that they are 100% pure and organic?
Just the same way you take care of what you eat, you must take careful consideration of what you apply to your body. The skin is the largest organ on your body and deserves care and attention. Switching to organic skincare products is the answer.
Only natural ingredients
To give you a better understanding of this benefit. We have a small assignment for you. Take a bottle of non-organic skin care products and read the label. Is there any that you recognize? Is there any that is natural?
Non-organic products contain synthetic chemicals such as mineral oils, petroleum, and Laureth sulfate that have been linked to hormone imbalance, skin irritation, and even worse cancer.
The cause of many reactions, allergies, and inflammations are chemicals and non-organic products. Though this is not to say that organic products do not cause allergies. Strawberries and peanuts are the most common allergy-inducing substances. For cosmetic users who have such allergies, they should choose their products with caution.
Prevents premature aging
Organic skincare options have been designed with bio-active nutrients. This means that they can readily be absorbed by the skin and slow down the effect of the sun on your skin. Next time you choose sunscreen, choose an organic-based one.
Highly effective on your skin
A fun fact that you should realize is that your skin is alive! To make your skin healthy and have that natural glow, you need to feed it with the right nutrients and vitamins. Most of these are to be found in organic products such as plants and animal extracts. Manufacturers of organic products go the extra mile to ensure that their products are extracted free of contamination from herbicides or pesticides.
In addition, non-organic products contain chemicals that may be harsh on your skin.
The effect on the environment
Since users of such products are interested in the betterment of their skin, rarely do they consider the effect it has on the environment. Organic products make use of naturally grown ingredients, produced through natural practices and that is most importantly biodegradable. With little or no chemicals in the products, organic skincare has a reduced effect on the environment.
Organic skin care products not only do wonders for your skin but also be the environment. With the world being more conscious of the environment, it is time cosmetics users came on board.
