Organic Beauty Care - 7 Benefits of Using Natural Skincare Products

Organic Beauty Care - 7 Benefits of Using Natural Skincare Products

Certified organic beauty care has clear benefits for the individual user and the environment. People should be afforded the opportunity to try natural skincare products and decide for themselves, if it is suitable for them. The media has programmed us to trust a product simply because it is branded with the name of some big cosmetic company with lots of fancy packaging, it must be really good for us, right? Wrong.

I personally believe that products created using natural and organic ingredients are, in the least comparable if not better than their chemical and synthetic counterparts, utilising the goodness of nature itself. If in any doubt, just try reading the label of any cosmetic product you own and see how many ingredients you actually know about.This article outlines my seven core beliefs with respect to organic and natural skincare products:

1.Good for the environment
Organic systems aim to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources. Organic production aims at all times towards sustainability whilst having best management of the environment and wildlife as a priority.
2.Good for people
Organic based ingredients have been shown in a number of studies to contain more vitamins, nutrients and cancer-fighting antioxidants than non-organic ingredients.
3.No synthetic chemicals
Organic systems prohibit the use of artificial colours and fragrances, pesticides and fertilisers.
4.Good for the soil
Organic systems rely on a modern and scientific understanding of ecology and soil science, while also depending on traditional methods of crop rotations to ensure fertility and weed and pest control.
5.No GMOs
Certified Organic products are produced without GMOs, which are prohibited in the standards for organic food and farming.
6.No animals harmed
Organic products are tested on humans rather than on animals.
7. Socially Responsible
By choosing to use organic beauty care you make a conscious effort to do what is right by yourself and your planet.
