Why Organic Skincare Is Best

Natural skincare is one of the best choices you can make for your health.

Just as natural and organic foods are optimal choices for a healthy body, natural skincare should be considered with this same approach.

As your largest organ, your skin absorbs both nutrients and toxins throughout the day. If you are putting dangerous ingredients on your skin, such as phthalates and parabens, common ingredients of most body care, then you can bet they are filtering into your body. It is medically understood that what goes on your skin absorbs into your bloodstream and is then carried throughout the rest of your body.

These poisons can cause reproductive issues and have even been linked to cancer. The longer these products are used the higher the toxic concentration can build up in the body as well.

In addition, the FDA doesn’t need to approve what ingredients are added to personal care or cosmetic products, which means we don’t even have the complete knowledge of what we are putting into our bodies on a daily basis.

This may seem scary or even overwhelming, but organic and natural skincare options are on the rise. And when given the right nutrients, our skin actually has the ability to care for and mend itself. According to a recent study, using natural ingredients for skin care can help treat hyperpigmentation and inflammation and even the effects of aging.

Organic natural skin care products work better simply because they are made with superior ingredients.

What is Organic Skincare?

Organic skincare derives from plant based ingredients combined with naturally occurring ingredients. They are grown without the use of pesticides, GMOs, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or anything other harmful chemical. These ingredients come with an Organic certification to ensure that the integrity of the ingredient is authentic and unadulterated. This is also extremely beneficial to the environment as these harmful chemicals and fertilizers have a destructive effect on water and soil. In turn, looking after our own health aids significantly in the current fragile state of our planet.

Organic skincare products are cruelty-free as they have not been tested on animals, which is another added plus.
