Benefits Of Using Organic ProductsOn by
Every modern woman follows or aspires to follow a basic beauty routine of cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen.
What most of these women don’t know is that this skincare regime could be doing more harm than good.
Scientific studies have shown that a significant percentage of cosmetics in the market use unnecessary chemicals and additives in their formula.
They do not list all the ingredients used and only include those required for registration.
A change in organic products will bring health without breaking this routine.
Organic cosmetics try to stay as close to the earth as possible by using plant extracts and essential oils to create skincare solutions.
Green tea is not only a health drink but also a component of organic beauty products. Other healthy components include raw shea butter, olive oil, flaxseed oil, and coconut oil.
Food additives such as turmeric, honey, egg whites, and avocado are also fantastic natural alternatives used to make organic skin care products.
They eliminate the harshness of chemicals that contribute to aging by wearing down the epidermis that is the outer layer of the skin.
Harsh facial scrub may also predispose skin to sunburn and thus increase the chances of developing skin cancer.
Many synthetic materials used also cause allergic reactions in users.
Take time to read the labels before you buy any cosmetic, because the harmful components are disguised by using pseudo names.
Also, make sure to avoid counterfeit cosmetics that often retail at cheaper prices.
Avoid any product that contains parabens as they are suspected to be carcinogenic. They also mimic body hormones and they can cause hormonal imbalances over time.
These have been linked to sperm damage, infertility, and even feminization of babies.
Products with heavy fragrances are also harmful as they cover up the smell of the chemicals. Tiny amounts can be absorbed in the skin over time and they can cause liver damage.
These excess chemicals wash off the body into the water and cause environmental degradation. The packaging of organic beauty products is always done with environmentally degradable material that is safe for the environment.
Most of these are recyclable.
Avoid products with ingredients like hydrochloric acid and other stabilizers like di-2-Ethylhexyl.
Apart from being suspected carcinogens, they cause developmental defects in infants. Non-organic cosmetics are often petroleum-based and the contamination in the impurities is not listed.
It only appears on the label as petrolatum or paraffin. Also avoid products with preservatives such as 1,4-dioxane, ammonia, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, lead acetate, hydroquinone, mercury, triclosan, toluene, and other undeclared nanoparticles.
These components are known to cause nausea, eye damage, skin lightening, cancers, and damage in the alimentary tract and throat.
Always shop for your cosmetics when you have ample time so you can clarify the ingredients used.
No truly organic beauty product will contain any of the toxic chemicals mentioned above.
Apart from the organic products being safe to use, they are more effective and your beauty will last longer.
