Organic Skincare Products – Fads or Fabulous?
By Soap Blogger
Perhaps the single most commonly asked question of all on the subject of organic skincare products is that of whether they’re the ‘real deal’ in terms of beneficial properties. There will always be those who both assume and preach to others that ‘organic’ is simply a badge that doesn’t mean a great deal at all, despite having no actual knowledge on the subject whatsoever. Of course, we’re never afraid to put our money where our mouths are and nor do we shy away from these kinds of questions.
So, as far as we’re concerned, what makes organic skincare wholly fabulous and nothing even close to a fad?
1 – Natural Ingredients
Well, for one thing when you look at the list of what goes into the average bar of store-bought soap, it’s pretty likely that you won’t have a clue what most of the ingredients are or even how to pronounce them. And when this is the case, you’ll also have no idea what they might or might not be doing to your skin and indeed your health in general.
It’s something of a no-brainer to state that rubbing harmful chemicals all over your body isn’t the kind of thing most would call a good idea, though is nonetheless what millions do day after day without giving it a second thought. With organic skincare, every last ingredient is 100% natural and 100% kind to your skin.
2 – A Dose of Goodness
What’s also worth bearing in mind is that while most of the skincare products and soaps on the market aren’t necessarily what you’d call directly dangerous, they’re also probably doing your skin no favours. Think of it this way – when you use a strong soap or cleaning product that uses chemicals and synthetic compounds to produce a cleansing effect, it’s inevitable that they will at the same time strip your skin of essential moisture and nutrients. You come out clean, but you also come out with lower natural defences and skin that’s more damage-prone than it perhaps should be.
With organic skincare products, not only are all of the skin’s natural defences left undamaged, but the gentle ingredients within the soap actually put an extra dose of the good stuff back into and onto your skin, strengthening its resistance even further.
3 – Lavish Luxury
Last but not least, along with the tangible benefits you’ll see and feel in no time at all by way of skin health improvement, there’s also so much to be said for the lavish dose of luxury you get to enjoy every time you use organic skincare products. The heavenly fragrances and rich moisturising properties take you to another world of relaxing, restful bliss, making your daily cleansing routines more of a pleasure than ever before.
This is precisely why organic skincare products make perfect gifts as they are the kinds of luxuries you often have to introduce others to before they can really understand the difference. Though suffice to say, once you’ve tried the organic way of life there really is no going back!
