7 reasons why organic skincare is better for you

Your skin is the largest organ in your entire body, covering an average area of two square meters and counting for about 15% of your body weight.

It’s size is a perfect representation of its importance, not just to our mental, but physical health as well, so it’s only common sense that you treat it with the best products available.

However, evidence points out to the fact that many conventional skin-care may actually do your harm a lot of harm in exchange for a little good. To drive this point home, here are seven reasons to use organic skincare products instead of industrial.

1. Non-Organic Products Can Actually Do More Harm Than Good.

Pick up your nearest moisturizer and read the label, there you will find toxic man-made chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, Laureth sulfate, and even toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Long-term use of products that include these toxins can cause skin irritation, hormone imbalance, organ toxicity, and even cancer.

 2. Organic Products Are Made Of Natural Ingredients 

By definition, an organic product is made from naturally occurring ingredients like veggies, fruit, or seeds, and what's most important, have no chemical conservants or pesticide included in the recipe. That is to say with an organic skincare product, your skin is not absorbing anything it is not already equipped to absorb.

 3. They Are Non-Allergic

Without the harsh chemical ingredients your skin is not prepared to take in, organic skincare products are not as likely to cause allergic reactions. That is not to say it is impossible to have an allergy to certain ingredients like peanuts, though they would be much easier to identify.

4. Organic Products Just Work Better

Although faster acting, many industrial skin-care products come with a series of side effects that come as a result of their invasive methods. This is not the case with organic solutions. For example, ingredients such as totarol bark and green tea are excellent for fighting acne and cleansing the pores, they may take a longer period of applying it, but in exchange, you’ll suffer no collateral effects.

 5. Your Skin Will Thank You

Plants and other ingredients contained in organic products are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients essential for healthy skin. Taking care of your skin with organic products will also ensure your skin maintains elasticity and remains pretty for longer. This is because, unlike industrial products which only give you aesthetic benefits, organic ones are actually bringing nutrients into your system, strengthening it.

 6. Organic Products Are Cruelty-Free

In the recent past, the beauty industry has received a good amount of backlash over bad practices such as testing on dogs and rabbits which are done without regard for the animal’s well-being. Organic products, on the other hand, do no such tests (always check for a vegan symbol), and you can use them with a clean conscience that your skin’s beauty was not bought with the suffering of innocent creatures. 

 7. You’ll Be Helping The Environment

Since the ingredients used in the production of organic skincare products are grown without the use of toxic pesticides or fertilizers, they don’t cause as much of a negative impact on the environment. For example, did you know that the use of certain pesticides causes them to sink into the earth and poison groundwater reserves?

 Hopefully, this article served to show you all the ways in which organic skincare products can not only help you but even the planet as a whole.
