Using organic beauty and skincare products is more than just a trend. It really is worth the extra effort and the extra money to use beauty products that are made from certified organic ingredients. Using products on your body that are not organic can cause damage to your skin as well as your health. Here are three reasons to go organic.
Reason #1. Everything you put onto your body is absorbed into your body. When you use skincare products that contain synthetic chemicals and toxic ingredients they absorb directly into the bloodstream which can lead to potential health risks.
Reason #2. Your facial skin is very thin, making it vulnerable to irritation. Skincare products containing synthetic chemical ingredients are harsh on delicate facial skin. This not only causes skin irritation, but also makes skin prone to dryness and accelerated aging. Skincare products made from organic ingredients are gentle and work with the skin’s natural mechanism to maintain it’s health.
Reason #3. Organic plants are grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides. This results in ingredients that are not nutritionally deplete; and can, therefore, provide optimum therapeutic benefits to the skin.
How to Choose Organic
The term “organic” has become a marketing ploy on the labels of many beauty products. To ensure the authenticity of a product’s claim to be organic, look for product labels using the term these four ways.
- 100% Organic: Product contains only organically produced food ingredients. The label will have the USDA Organic seal.
- Organic: Product contains at least 95% organically produced food ingredients. The label will have the USDA Organic seal.
- Made with Organic Ingredients: Product contains at least 70% organically produced food ingredients. The label will not have the USDA Organic seal.
- Organic Ingredients: Products contains less than 70% organically produced food ingredients. The label will not have the USDA Organic seal.
