Organic Products: Go or No?
Organic skin care products and items are very popular now, and they can be seen and bought online and from physical stores. However, there is still an ongoing debate whether going organic is really safer or not. Here, we list some of the reasons why you should consider using organic products.
No Harmful Chemicals That You Can’t Even Pronounce
Organic products are produced without the use of artificial fertilizers or pesticides as conventional ingredients. With that, you can be sure your skin and body absorb only real, natural ingredients that aren't harmful. While this is generally true and good to know, experts still advise, especially those with sensitive skin, to be cautious. While some natural ingredients may not cause an allergic reaction, they can still make some people itch and develop a rash.
Going Organic is Better for Your Skin
Using organic skin care products ensures that you get the real nutritional benefits from its ingredients. Coconut oil, honey, aloe vera, and shea butter, are known to soothe, nourish, moisturize and promote smooth skin. Though it takes a while to see the results, they are gentler on your skin compared to products with chemicals that damage and weaken your skin with prolonged use.
You’re Supporting a Good Cause
When you buy organic skin care products, you are buying cruelty-free items and also supporting the move towards abolishing animal testing in the industry.
You’re Helping Mother Nature
By using organic products, you also support local farmers who are using practical models for addressing climate-friendly production of food and beauty ingredients. Organic farming doesn’t just benefit the end users of its produce, it’s also better for the environment.
