There are so many different types of skincare products on the market that it is difficult to know what to buy. As people become more aware of good health and the dangers of putting chemicals into their bodies, all natural organic skincare products continue to become more popular.
It is important that we know as much as we can about the products we buy and the ingredients that they contain. Start to read labels on products before you buy and choose organic every time.
Why use Organic?
Herbal plants and extracts have been used successfully for hundreds of years and one of the main reasons they are so popular is that they don’t cause harmful side effects. Organic ingredients are renowned for their healing qualities, and products which contain them are high in minerals so they nourish and protect the skin.
Many of the non-organic skincare products on the market have a tendency to irritate the skin because of the harmful chemicals they contain and more drastically can cause cancer and tumors. When you think that as much as 60% of skincare products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream it is no wonder we are buying more organic products than ever before.
Natural products are compatible with most if not all skin types and are easily absorbed by the body. It is much more comforting to think that your body is absorbing natural extracts rather than harsh poisonous chemicals.
What is Organic Skincare?
Certified organic skin products contain natural ingredients such as fruit, vegetables and grains which are grown without using synthetic pesticides, fertilizers or hormones. Products don’t contain any artificial colors or harmful chemicals such as parabens. Parabens are low-cost chemicals usually used to preserve products and have unfortunately been linked to breast cancer. The best organic skin products go through the minimal amount of processing and have antioxidant properties which help to regenerate the skin.
So how do you know the product you’re buying is 100% organic?
A lot of brands nowadays offer ‘all-natural’ or ‘organic’ alternatives but you should be wary because these labels are used quite freely. Many products that are labeled ‘all-natural’ do in fact contain chemicals and synthetics too so try to buy ‘organic’ when you can and always read the labels.
Organic Skincare is for Everyone
Most people can use organic skincare products because the ingredients are natural and basically good for you. These organic formulas are often much better for people who suffer with skin conditions such as eczema or acne because there are no chemicals or perfumes present to aggravate the symptoms.
There are many different types of organic skincare products which include cleansers, toners, moisturizers, anti-aging creams, body wash and aromatic oils. You use them exactly the same way as non-organic products but they are much better for you.
If you are not sure about buying a product then try a sample first. Many products come in travel sizes or there are usually smaller pouches available. Most stores will be more than happy to supply you with a small sample that you can take away with you so you can try before you buy.
Organic skin products are certainly much better for you than those that contain lots of synthetic perfumes and chemicals. Although organic products may be slightly more expensive, at least you will be assured that you are giving your skin the best care and protection you can.
