These days, most of us are aware of the chemicals lurking in the packaged food products at the grocery store and as a result we ensure we check over the label before throwing anything in our carts.
So why aren’t we doing the same with our skincare products?
You may be familiar with parabens and sulfates and feel good when a label states that it is “paraben free,” but there may still be an array of other nasty ingredients in that product, ones that won’t benefit your skin and can actually put your health at risk.
Switching to an all natural skin care line, free from chemicals and formulated with only organic ingredients, will help to transform your skin and provide long-term benefits, as well as protect your health.
Keep reading for our top 3 reasons for making the switch!
1. It’s better for your skin (and your health)
What’s the point of a brand name product with a hefty price tag if it’s comprised of primarily water and a few filler ingredients? Sure, you may see instant results from ingredients like silicone that can instantly smooth and plump the skin, but don’t expect to see any long-term benefits.
Organic skincare products are formulated with small batch, concentrated ingredients that infuse your skin with antioxidants and sink deep into the pores to deliver their powerful anti-aging and skin clearing benefits. Now doesn’t that sound like something you want to put on your skin?
Conventional products, brimming with chemicals, often contain harsh ingredients that will aggravate your skin and even put your health at risk. No thanks!
2. It’s better for the environment
We aren’t judging you if you aren’t thinking about where your skincare products are going when you rinse your body or your hair in the shower, or when your hand soap swirls down the drain, but we hope you’ll pay more attention after reading this.
Every product you use, eventually finds its way down the drain where it enters the environment and can pollute our rivers, streams and wildlife. So not only is organic skincare better for you, it’s better for the environment too. Toxic ingredients can affect ecosystems, whereas natural ingredients simply return to the earth where they came from in the first place.
3. It’s better for all furry critters
If you love animals then you may want to ditch the chemical stuff asap.
Many big name companies allow animal testing of their products, which is very cruel and involves poor animals in cages being exposed to harmful toxins that can cause a range of skin irritations, deformities and death.
Organic skincare companies, such as ours, often follow the same philosophy, which includes promoting only cruelty-free products. Don’t support companies that test on animals, always be sure to look for the cruelty-free label.
