The Untold Secrets About Organic Skin Care

Jul 25, 2008
Organic skin care is the name given to natural skin care treatments such as herbs and products made of a blend of different organic plants. These products are simple and very effective. They have no harmless effects because of the fact that they are made with all pure substances.

Many people are now considering organic skin care as it has been proved to be successful for many skin disorders. There are now hundreds of companies that manufacture natural skin care products ranging from simple moisturizers to cosmetics, including foundations and concealers.

Seaweed, neem, lettuce, fenugreek, lemon and many others are herbs that are excellent for skin health. The kind of products to choose depends largely on your skin type. If your skin is oily you may consider buying a moisturizer system with a lot of oil in it. However, for oily skin the same moisturizers can be a nightmare.

The advantage of organic skin care products is that they are suitable for nearly all skin types. They might cause irritation if you have damaged or over-sensitive skin, but other than that, there are no side effects associated with their application. Vitamin C is good for dry skin. Similarly, collagen and elastin are good for aging skin and wrinkles.

There are some products that claim to be completely organic but in reality they are not. You should be aware of these products and choose only those that come from reputed manufacturers. A good way to know about the effectiveness of a particular product is to read user reviews about it. If customers are satisfied, it means the product is in fact very effective.

Another way is to look for manufacturers that have organic certification. Not all manufacturers are certified to provide natural skin care or organic skin care products to their customers. It's ok to have non-organic substances in a product, but the overall quality should be excellent in this case and should comply with international quality standards.

You should avoid ingredients such as parabens, which are added as preservatives to many skin care products and particularly organic skin care products. Since these substances contain carbon, many people list them as organic compounds but in reality they are not good for the skin. Be on the look out for such ingredients in a product before buying it to avoid health complications.

Organic skin care is being advertised massively these days but the above-mentioned points are some of the untold secrets that most people don't know about. Always keep these points in mind so that you don't put your health to risk just because a lot of advertisements are saying that organic products are the way to go.
