Nature is the Largest Store: Reasons Why Organic Skincare is preferable

 When it comes to choosing our food, a natural and organic choice and lifestyle make perfect sense. Each time we eat, the food is broken down by our digestive system, and the liver is flushing away harmful toxins. However, when we put something on our skin, up to 60% of the synthetic chemicals may enter the bloodstream and build up in our bodies. Using chemical-free products (natural and organic) for our skincare routine therefore makes perfect sense.

So many products we use everyday on our skin. These include - make up, lotions, creams, oils, fragrances, soaps etc. It is not only what we eat what matters, but also what we put on our skin! Everything we could ever need to stay healthy and happy nature has already created for us! Nature is the largest store !  

Your skin needs to be nourished with Organic products. Many non organic beauty products available to us contain many types of chemicals which react with out bloodstream. Up to 60% of what you apply on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream, which then gets circulated around your whole body. Therefore more and more people are switching to organic products.

Let me list some benefits of Using Organic Products-


  1. Non-organic skin care products contain harmful ingredients: Non-organic skin care products contain synthetic, man-made chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, Laureth sulfate, and toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Studies have shown that the presence of these products can cause skin irritation, organ toxicity and even cancer. Skin irritation is being the most common.

  2. Organic products are non-allergenic: Without harsh chemicals, organic skincare products are less likely to cause allergic reactions, inflammations or irritations. If an allergic reaction does occur with the use of organic products, it would most likely be due to a natural ingredient (such as peanuts or strawberries), which would be easier to identify.

  3. Organic skincare products are made of natural ingredients: Have you read the ingredients on the back label of the products you buy? I am sure it would be difficult to recognise. Now try and read the ingredients mentioned on the Organic Skincare products; you will recognise most. Organic ingredients are derived from plants mostly. More importantly, those organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. With that, you can be sure your skin and body absorb only real, natural ingredients that aren’t harmful.

  4. Organic skincare products work better: Plants grown organically are found to contain a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. Because they are grown without herbicides and pesticides, their organic ingredients are also free from that contamination, which means the same for your skin and body. Most organic skincare products contain 95% active ingredients while synthetic/ chemical based products contain only 5-10% active ingredients.

  5. Going organic is better for your skin: The synthetic ingredients found in non-organic products may be fast-acting, but they are also invasive, causing harm that cannot be seen. Their chemical ingredients may provide instant gratification and visible results, but most of this only helps you aesthetically by smoothening out wrinkles, removing sunspots, and diminishing blemishes. While organic is something which you can use without worrying much.  

  6. You’re supporting cruelty-free skincare products: Organic products do not need to go through the process of animal testing and therefore these products do not get categorised as 'tested on animals'. All this for the simple reason that the ingredients procured are completely natural and plant derived. Most chemical based skincare and beauty products for many years have been getting labelled as 'tested on animals'. Hence, when you buy Organic skincare, you are buying cruelty free products and supporting the move towards doing away with animal testing.

  7. You’re helping to preserve the environment: When you follow the practice of buying organic products you are supporting Organic farming. All organic ingredients are grown without these of pesticides, chemicals; hence cause lower pollution to the environment. Thus, you are also supporting a sustainable environment.

To conclude- With prolonged use, chemicals may damage and weaken your skin as your body tries to cope with these foreign substances. As a result, oxygen exchange to the skin is reduced, causing premature ageing and increased risk of developing sunspot, pigmentation and other skin ailments. Thus, buying organic skincare will promote the use of sustainable skincare and support the environment and support your good living.
