5 Reasons to use Organic Cosmetics

March 06, 2020

1)  Our Skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it.

So, you better avoid toxic ingredients and only put the finest Natural & Organic ingredients.

2) Organic beauty products complement a healthy lifestyle.

When deciding to commit to healthy lifestyle, we usually start with fitness and nutrition, but beauty products are most of the time, the last thing we think of. But there is no doubt in that what you put in your body is as important as what you put on your body. Beauty and health inside and out!

3) Organic ingredients have fewer toxins.

 Many conventional and some natural beauty products start with a base of petroleum glycols (butylene or propylene glycols like petroleum jelly products). Petroleum-based ingredients should be avoided due to their association with dioxane and other potentially harmful chemicals.
Other potentially harmful ingredients present in non-organic products are synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes due to concerns associated with endocrine disruption and parabens due to their link with breast cancer.

4) Organic products are more potent than their non-organic counterparts.

Research has shown that organically farmed materials have approximately a 30% greater antioxidant level than conventionally or naturally farmed crops.

We are firm believers that by formulating with an antioxidant and vitamin-rich organic botanical juice base, rather than petroleum derivatives or added water, and combining it with powerful skin care ingredients, we can achieve better results than conventional or natural products. Multiple clinical tests have validated this theory which has been extremely encouraging.

And of course, organic cosmetics go through the same testing process as conventional ones to be sold.

5) Organic farming is better for the environment 

Organic means working with nature. It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilizers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment, which means more wildlife.

Whatever you are buying, from cotton burds to carrot, when you choose organic food, drink or beauty and textiles, you choose products that promote a better world.
