Benefits of using organic cosmetics
Every woman wants to have a glowing, healthy complexion that is protected against harmful external factors. If you really are interested in your skin health, you will definitely want to use products that are truly healthy for your skin. But what exactly is healthy nowadays? We specially wrote this article to help you choose the best organic skin care products.
Why is it so important to make the best decision when it comes to skincare products? Most of the people think chemical products are not really that dangerous. If you are one of those people, I respectfully disagree with you.
Did you know that our skin absorbs 60% of the substances we apply in our daily routine? If this does not surprise you, it comes with even worse news: If you are pregnant, beware of the products you use! Harmful chemicals cause the most disease when they are present during fetal development. Even more so, the toxic substances can lead to serious illness, such as cancer or infertility.
If we convinced you to use organic skincare products, you would probably ask yourself: what exactly should I choose, natural or organic? What are the differences and what would be the best option for my skin?
Natural cosmetics contain ingredients derived from plants and minerals. Ingredients such as aloe, chamomile, shea butter, beeswax or essential oils have a lot of benefits for hair and skin - even when they are not technically organic.
Organic cosmetics do not contain any chemical additions; they are composed of plant-based ingredients grown healthy and organic, without being treated with herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Unlike natural cosmetics, they must contain a much higher degree of plant-based ingredients in order to be certified organic. (learn more about the certification procedure right here).
Our choice: organic cosmetics! Why? Here are some of the benefits of using this type of skin care product:
1. Environmental friendly
When you decide to buy that popular and top-rated brand of anti-wrinkle cream that has been advertised daily, you encourage indirectly the pollution of the planet. That cream is for sure unsafe for your skin. If not, why would it need any marketing strategy? Unfortunately, many of the commercial cosmetic products contain toxic substances for both skin and body. The side effects cannot be discovered immediately, but they will leave marks on the body over time.
Cosmetics can damage both the environment and health. Chemicals used in cosmetics are washed into rivers, lakes, and streams. Thousands of plastic packages are left behind, chemical elements pollute waters affecting marine life and, generally, life on Earth.
On the other hand, organic products are not just beneficial to you, but for the entire environment as well. Why? Because the ingredients are based on sustainable agriculture. As I have already said, they come from plants that have not been chemically treated.
2. Chemical-free skin care products
Parabens, sulfates, phthalates or petrochemicals? When you choose to use daily organic skin care, you no longer have to worry about all these ingredients that may have a negative impact on your skin.
Instead, what would you say about: aloe vera, shea butter, coconut oil, eucalyptus, green tea, and other more pronounced names compared to the above? These are just some of the natural ingredients used in various cosmetics.
3. Natural flavors
If you are one of the people who prefer the fragrance of a product to the detriment of any other qualities, we have good news: organic cosmetics have a pleasant smell too, and it is even closer to nature than any other chemical. The flavors of the products you find on the market are due to the chemicals that are mixed with other ingredients, which can cause skin damage, nervous system diseases, cancer or allergies. Make sure the products you buy have a genuine smell of natural ingredients and not of synthetic flavors.
4. Rich in nutrients
Most organic makeup products contain coconut butter. Their fatty acids may help reduce wrinkles, dry skin, and age spots. You can also find ingredients such as peach extracts, grapes, white tea, which prevent aging skin and naturally build collagen for glowing, youthful skin.
5. Slow down the ageing process
Solar radiation is one of the most important factors when it comes to premature aging. Choosing an organic cosmetic product made from natural minerals will offer you, besides many advantages, a certain sun protection. In organic ingredients, you can also find: antioxidants from vitamin C, rose oil, rose water, rosemary oil or sunflower oil.
6. Gentle with the skin
Do you remember that cosmetic product you bought just because it was cheap and “could not affect you at all”, but the next day, after applying it, your face was irritated and full of pimples? Unfortunately, events like this happen quite often and can never be forgotten. Even if the products were cheap, they had a much higher cost: the long-term health of your complexion. Are you really willing to pay this price?
By choosing organic products, not only will you enjoy the short-term beautifying effects, but you will also make a sustainable choice for your health!
So what do you think? Are these products really good for you? "Yes, but they certainly cost too much!" I hear this statement quite often, but I find it just a myth, organic products are healthier, cheaper and contain only ingredients that extremely helpful for your beauty, they are environmental friendly, and their use makes you feel good. Do not forget, your skin deserves the best! That's why we invite you to look at our organic products page. :)
