Three Things You Need to Know About Organic Skincare
By Soap Blogger
Whichever way you look at it, Mother Nature always knows best. Given the fact that we are 100% natural creatures ourselves, it stands to reason that 100% natural products or preparations represent the best choices for our bodies.
Nevertheless, the overwhelming majority of skincare products currently on the market are anything but 100% naturaland in most cases contain absolutely nothing organic. Instead, what is offered is a potentially harsh and in some instances dangerous cocktail of chemicals and toxins – none of which are particularly beneficial for our overall health and wellbeing.
Here at Simply Soaps, we believe that making the switch to organic skincare represents one of the simplest yet most rewarding lifestyle changes anyone can make. So specifically for those who may be considering hopping over the fence to the organic side of life, here are three things you absolutely must know about organic skincare:
1 – Organic Is So Much Better For Your Skin
As already touched upon, the average commercial skincare product can be loaded with an extraordinary array of harmful chemicals and toxins. While they may do a good job of cleaning your skin, they also have the potential to strip away the oils and nutrients the skin relies on for protection, replacing them with potentially damaging residues. In addition, problematic skin conditions can be made even more problematic by these synthetic ingredients and compounds. Doing what’s best for your skin means providing it with products that are as natural and gentle as it itself is. Suffice to say, the difference you will both see and feel in no time at all will come as quite the revelation.
2 – Organic Is Also Better For The Environment
Of course we cannot speak for every organic skincare product manufacturer, but here at Simply Soaps the way we create our products is uniquely environmentally friendly. Not only this, but when you think about what actually goes down the drain in the average household each and every day, you begin to realise just how many chemicals and toxins from synthetic skincare products are finding their way into the water system. But there are so many ingredients and additives that go into standard skincare and haircare products that are toxic to both wildlife and human beings alike. By contrast, when skincare products are made using nothing but the safest and simplest 100% organic ingredients, any runoff that finds its way back into the system is as harmless as the products themselves.
3 – Natural and Organic Are Not the Same
Last but not least, if you have made a decision to try organic skincare products for your own family, it is important to be aware of the fact that ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ are not in fact one and the same. The reason being that while natural refers to any product that is indeed natural, there’s nothing to say that the product in question might not have been packed with pesticides, chemicals and other toxic compounds while it was being grown, harvested and processed. 100% organic means that the products and its ingredients have been grown and processed using only 100% organic processes, with absolutely nothing synthetic or artificial creeping into the equation.
