Go Green ... Go Organic

Aug 27, 2008
Whilst most people seek out organic skin care for the sake of their bodies, there are benefits to organic products other than letting your skin go all natural. Organic is less allergenic and its feels good to know that chemicals and synthetic materials aren't getting plastered over your body. The ultimate benefits of organic products to your skin are not finite and although it can't be a bad idea using toxin-free products, other factors should influence the purchase of organic cosmetics.

The typical woman uses more than two hundred chemicals on her skin a day and recent research has reflected that over 60% of these chemicals are absorbed into the bloodstream; why should we take risks with chemicals when nature provides us with the organic means to care for our skin. Our skin is exposed to harmful elements everyday in our homes and environments and the amount of people suffering from allergies, eczema, and skin complaints are on the increase. It is so easy to protect our skin and stop bombarding it with the chemicals and harmful toxins that are so prevalent in standard non organic skin care products.

Organic products are also environmentally friendly in several ways. Organically plants eliminate the need for chemicals to be used in the growing of ingredients. Industries are constantly tampering with genes and hormones, trying to make fruit and veg huge, shiny, and long lasting. The use of pesticides and weed killers douses top soil with poisonous chemicals which take a long time to break up - if at all.

There have been many publicised cases where pesticides have damaged whole groups of animals and ecosystems like in the case of DDT being responsible for the decline of the bald eagle, brown pelican and peregrine falcon. Although now the agricultural use of DDT is banned in most countries, many others are still in use.

Essentially, using organic products reduces the amount of harmful liquids that circulate in the environment. Strategic planting and the use of other methods to keep away weeds and harmful insects can allow organic plants to flourish and be just as effective as treated plants without the need for toxins.

Organic products too eradicate the possibility of animal testing. Although recently it has become less common, animal testing still occurs for cosmetics and can be incredibly painful and distressing for the animals. The tests are done to determine whether specific ingredients or combinations would be harmful to humans; there are tons of organic ingredients which are completely safe, thus eradicating the need for animal testing.

Organic products can also be used when the body is full of toxins and requires a detox, eczema, tiredness, mood swings, hormonal in balance, allergies, constipation, mouth ulcers, sallow skin, nausea and even depression can all be indicators that the body needs to detox, using organic products will ensure that at least in regards to your cosmetics you are toxin-free.

It's a good idea to research products to find the ones which use a large proportion of organic ingredients - there are several companies which create mostly organic cosmetics on Scin Boutique. Not only will going organic give you beautiful, healthy skin, but you can relax and enjoy a clear conscience knowing they have at no point come into contact with toxins and have never been near a cute little rabbit!
