5 Reasons to Choose Organic Cosmetics
Everyone wants to get the best possible skincare and results for the best possible price, right? For long non-organic brands were the only option on the market. Times have changed and the organic cosmetics industry is booming.
We have listed five reasons why organic products are better for you.
1. Organic cosmetics don't contain harmful ingredients
Skin is the largest organ of your body and up to 60% what you apply to your skin absorbs to your bloodstreams. That's why the products make a difference. Synthetic cosmetics contain human-made chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, laureth sulphate, and toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Studies show that they can contain mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, and other chemicals and, with long term use, can cause, for example, skin irritation, hormone imbalance, and even cancer.
If you've ever been wondering what your cosmetics contains, you can use for example Cosmethics app to detect your products and use them as a tool to help you choose non-harmful products next time you shop!
2. Organic cosmetics are efficient
Organic plants have a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. A study shows that organic crops are up to 60% higher in a number of key antioxidants than conventionally-grown ones.
3. By using organic cosmetics, you support cruelty-free brands
Organic products are never animal-tested. When you buy organic skincare products, you are buying cruelty-free skincare products and also supporting the move towards abolishing animal testing in the industry.
4. Organic cosmetics are better for the environment
Because organic products use naturally grown ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides and fertilisers, they don't leave a harmful footprint on the planet. By using organic skincare products, you're helping to minimise your environmental impact and support the sustainability of our environment. The ingredients are biodegradable and packaging minimal with maximum recycled content.
5. Everyone can use natural skincare
Because all of the above, most of the organic skincare products can be used by the whole family, which helps to keep the expenses (and the bathroom cabinet!) in order. For example, we keep ours and our toddlers' skin soft with Flow Organic Shea Butter which can be used since birth. Talk about convenience!
