Reasons to Choose Natural and Organic Skincare

1. Protect Your Skin

When you put something on your skin, up to 60% of the synthetic chemicals may enter the bloodstream and build up in your body. Using chemical-free products (natural and organic) for your skincare routine makes perfect sense and protects you from the harmful effects of synthetic chemicals.

The skin is the largest organ of our body that can absorb many nutrients, but it can also take in several harmful toxins every day. For example, numerous traditional skin care products can contain endocrine-disrupting phthalates or parabens (diethyl phthalate-DEP, DBP, methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl, and so on).

Think about all the products you are using every day that come in contact with your skin: makeup, fragrances, moisturisers, soaps, deodorants and so on. Most of us can use up to ten cosmetics every day. That could be ten products containing loads of toxic synthetic chemicals.

How to avoid harmful ingredients in your skincare products?

Always read the ingredient labels when buying any product. Many of the most common ingredients found in daily cosmetic products have been linked to all sorts of health risks. Therefore, it is wise to research the ones you aren’t sure about before making a purchase.

Go to safecosmetics.org to see the ingredients and contaminants you need to avoid (based on the science that links each chemical to adverse health impacts, and the types of products they’re found in. You can quickly search by health effect, product type, or affected population.
Nowadays, it’s almost impossible to avoid them altogether, so why not looking for natural and organic alternatives instead? That would be the simplest way to reduce exposure.

2. Protect the Environment

The impact of petrochemical-based products

Looking after the environment is everyone’s responsibility, therefore, we all need to do our bit to protect our planet. Going natural and organic can be just as beneficial as reducing waste or recycling. Every day we use petrochemical-based products that pollute our water supply as they get flushed from our bathrooms. At a bigger scale, the situation is similar to an oil spill leaking from our pipes. This creates a vicious chain reaction that affects ecosystems and harms the animals, plants and in turn, humans.

The importance of organic farming

Organic skincare products are better for the environment because organic farming eliminates the use of synthetic chemicals and fertilisers. These all have a negative impact on our water, soil and eventually our health. Organically grown plants are also not genetically modified as GMO’s pose a significant threat to both human and environmental well-being. Therefore, by looking out for your health, you’re also helping to protect the environment. That is a win-win situation!

3. Protect Future Generations

When you choose natural and organic, you make a silent contribution to the well-being of future generations. Several studies link some of the chemicals found in our daily skincare directly to birth defects. Pregnant women with high levels of phthalates usually found in fragrances, shampoos, makeup and so on, are more likely to have babies who will display disruptive behaviour years later. A quick Google search will reveal various studies on this matter and will keep you informed.

What is organic skincare?

Skincare products containing organically grown ingredients that are free from pesticides are generally defined as 'organic skincare'. Organic products are considered to be more beneficial for the skin. That is because there are little to no harsh synthetic chemical ingredients present in them.

Why natural organic skincare is better?

Because natural and organic skincare products combine essential vitamins, botanicals, and minerals that heal and help restore the skin, without harming the environment. Therefore, these products are not only good for us but also good for our planet.

Are the terms natural and organic the same?

Natural and Organic are frequently used interchangeably, but they don't mean the same thing at all. Natural doesn't mean organic and comes with no guarantees. If a skincare product is to be natural, the majority of ingredients must be from nature but can also contain artificial or 'nature identical' ingredients made in a lab. An organic skincare product contains only ingredients that have been grown using organic farming methods without the use of synthetic fertilisers, genetically modified ingredients or herbicides. These ingredients come with certification and guarantee.

What synthetic ingredients are best to avoid?

Skincare products that contain alcohols, sulfates, parabens, strong detergents or any other harsh ingredients can harm the skin so everyone should avoid them. Over a period of time, these ingredients can cause bad skin reactions and damage to the skin.
