Right now the organic and more natural skincare products are a huge trend.
Just like you eat quality foods, you like to use clean and natural products on your skin as well. Organic products just work better: better ingredients = better results.
Specially if you have any kind of skin problems like acne, rosacea or sensitive skin, it is really important what you use on your skin.
Avoiding unnecessary ingredients, chemicals and artificial perfumes which do not anything good for you and actually cause irritation, redness and breakouts.
If you still are doubting that natural product are just for hippies and defective, here are 10 amazing reasons why you should choose organic skincare products:
1. Natural skincare is Earth-friendly.
Since non-natural can have a negative impact on your environment in so many ways. For example what happens to our ecosystem when you put synthetic chemicals in the water supply? Research has shown in numerous studies that fertilizers had big impact how specially young girls which develop too early because of these chemicals. Organic products do not harm the environment and this is pretty important reason.
2. They’re actually better for your skin and your health.
Lets face it, what you put on your skin eventually goes inside of your body. Your body absorbs all the toxins from your beauty products like creams, soaps and lotions. The worst part that cosmetic industry is poorly regulated and there are products on the markets that can cause severe problems like cancer. Also many of the chemicals have never been tested, so there is potential risk for your health.
3. They do not contain synthetic fragrances
When you look at your beauty products and you see term “fragrance” , do you actually know what it means? Almost anything can end up fragrance, even hundreds of different chemicals. For example US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) do not require companies show the ingredients in their fragrances, even though many common ingredients in fragrances include chemicals are linked to health problems. There is nothing beneficial for your skin having any fragrances in your products, actually they are common sentitiers and cause irritation and allergic reactions.
4. Organic skin care products do not contain harmful ingredients
When you look at the bottle of non-organic skincare product label, how many ingredients you can actually recognize?
Non-natural products contain synthetic chemicals, mineral oils and toxins. Many studies have found that long term use of harmful ingredients can cause irritation, hormone imbalance and cancer.
5. You are supporting cruelty-free products
When you buy organic skin care products, you get cruelty-free skin care products and also supporting the move towards abolishing animal testing in the industry.
6. Non-organic cosmetics lacks nutrients
Most non-organic products contain very little nutritional ingredients that can truly benefit your skin. Instead of improving your skin, non-organic products only temporarily mask any issues you may have. Organic products have often amazing in ingredients like: Vitamin A & C & E, cold pressed plant oils, aloe vera and rose water.
7. You could be harming your baby and the others
What most people don’t realize is that non-organic products not only affect you, but also your kids, especially if you are pregnant. Organic products help protect our kids and everybody else as well. According to The Lancet Neurology study, toxins in cosmetics can affect brain development and lead to neurobehavioral problems like autism, ADHD, and dyslexia. Disorders of neurobehavioral development affect 10-15% of all births and are steadily increasing. Of course, it’s impossible to know which percentage of these are related to toxic chemicals in personal care products, but why take any risks? When you choose organic products you also support the wellbeing of our future generations.
8. Value for your money
It is a myth that organic products are more expensive that than mainstream brands, but that’s far from true. Have you seen the prices of brands like Chanel, La Mer and Estee Lauder? Also think about that junk food is way cheaper than quality food but like we all know, this does not do anything good for your health in the long term so why you would intentionally do this to your skin?
9. They heal and repair your skin
We use many cosmetic products everyday like: toothpaste, face wash, toner, serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, foundation again, blush and bronzer. The list goes on and on so imagine how many chemicals are in our skin. When you use organic products, you skin feels much more balanced and better.
10. Organic skin care products work better
Organically grown plants have much higher levels of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. Because the plants are grown without herbicides and pesticides, their organic ingredients are also free from that contamination, which means the same for your skin and body.
