Are Natural Skincare Products Better?
Your skin deserves the best care, which can only be provided if you use natural and organic skincare products that are free from harsh chemicals like parabens, formaldehyde, etc. that cause great underlying damage and have been linked to serious illnesses as well. That is why natural skincare products are better!
No harmful ingredients
As mentioned above, these skincare items don’t contain synthetic, man-made chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, Laureth sulfate, and toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Other harmful chemicals that can lead to skin irritation, hormone imbalance, organ toxicity, cancer, etc. are also absent.
These products are organic as they are derived from plants and other naturally occurring ingredients. More importantly, those organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. Thus your skin and body can only absorb real, natural ingredients that aren’t harmful.
Without harsh chemicals, natural skincare products are much less likely to cause allergic reactions, inflammation or irritation. Even if an allergic reaction does occur, it is usually very mild and easier to identify, so you can switch to another product.
The beauty industry has often received massive backlash for conducting animal testing to ensure products are safe for human use. Natural and organic skincare products aren’t tested on helpless animals as they are already proven to be safe and harmless.
Plants grown organically are found to contain a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. Since they are grown without herbicides and pesticides, their organic ingredients are also free from that contamination, which means the same for your skin and body. Up to 95% of an organic skincare product’s contents are active ingredients, which is just 5 to 10% in the case of their synthetic counterparts.
Last but not the least, using natural products helps to reduce environmental impact – so you look good and help Mother Nature at the same time!
