Natural Skin Care Products - Is 'Natural' Always Healthy?

Updated on October 13, 2017

Just like how you want your body to get the nourishment it deserve from organic-produced products, your skin also needs to be taken-cared off using organic beauty products. Many conventional beauty products available in the market these days are full of dangerous chemicals. Parabens (increases your risk to cancer), Formaldehyde (increases your risk to skin allergies and cancer) or petroleum waxes (increases your risk to breast tumors and could suffocate the skin), are some of the most common toxic materials found in your beauty products. You can otherwise avoid these harmful chemicals by using organic products. Here are some other reasons why you should start using organic beauty products, NOW!

1. Organic beauty products do not contain synthetic fragrances

Not everything about “fragrances” smells good. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), some companies refuse to disclose the materials used in their fragrances, as it is also known that commonly-used ingredients in fragrances contain harmful chemicals that are directly linked to cancer and other dangerous health concerns.

Likewise, these unspecified content found in conventional fragrances might cause skin irritation or could even trigger allergic reactions. Certain chemicals found in conventional beauty products can trigger the pH levels of your skin. In case you notice your skin peeling off without known cause, this might be due to the products you are using.

2. Organic beauty products work better

Organic products that are certified organic definitely works better just because of the superior ingredients found in them. Just like cooking. Great food does not include fake or artificial flavors. It is just the same with beauty products. Better ingredients found in organic beauty products can result to better changes. Consumers with sensitive skin will find it beneficial to use organic beauty products because they will not aggravate or worsen their skin condition.

3. Organic beauty products are good for your skin and health as well

What you apply to your skin definitely goes through your body. If you use chemical-infused soap, creams and lotions into your skin, you are just giving toxins to your body. That simply means that those commonly used toxic ingredients found in conventional beauty products like parabens, petroleum waxes and phthalates, all go to your body. Such chemicals are responsible for so many health related concerns.

Use organic beauty products certified by the USDA because it contain organic ingredients with the same standards as those of organic food. With that, you can be sure that you are using products that are free from harmful chemicals.

4. Organic beauty products are harmless to the environment

Specifically, this is not about your skin but for the good of the environment that you live in. The impact of chemical-infused beauty products are mostly neglected and forgotten. However, when you use organically-produced beauty products, you can help to minimize its effect to the environment. You won’t have to think of those chemicals going through your brain because none of it is present in the bottle itself. Most importantly, look for beauty companies that are using biodegradable materials for the packaging.
