Natural Skincare –
As more people begin to experience skin irritation from synthetic chemicals in skin care they are turning to products that contain natural products. Natural skincare products means that it doesn’t contain any synthetic ingredients. While some companies claim to be “100% natural” a closer look at the label may reveal synthetic ingredients. Our skin is our biggest organ, and skincare can and should be therapeutic on it’s own. Natural skin care, when made with organic ingredients are more earth friendly, and are never tested on animals. There are unknown chemicals, known irritants and unnecessary fillers in skincare products that are not 100% natural. As people continue to use these products their skin begins to show signs of irritation, it can be in the form of acne, redness, itching, hormonal disruptions, and even weakening of the immune system. In using natural and organic products you are aware of what is going on your skin. Chemicals that people haven’t heard of or can’t pronounce are unwanted by people that are seeking to be more compassionate to themselves and have control over what goes on their faces and bodies. Organic and natural products also don’t contain synthetic fragrances. You know by looking at the ingredients exactly what is going on your skin. Just as we care about what we put into our bodies, we should care about what we put on our bodies as well.
Natural skincare should not contain any talc or parabens, which are known carcinogens.
