We all hear about organic food and beauty products being so much better for us. And believe me, I’m a HUGE advocate – the more simple and the more natural, the better. But why is it so much better? Always good to question things, beautiful ones, never stop asking questions!
Natural and organic products are better for you and for our environment because:
- They are more earth friendly. Using products with loads of chemicals means these very chemicals pollute our precious air and waterways, and contribute to the huge, global pollution problem.
- They are kinder to our skin. Chemicals, artificial colors and fillers used in certain beauty products can cause allergies, redness and breakouts, whereas natural and organic ingredients work with our skin, not against it!
- Fragrance – this is a kicker. The FDA does not require the ingredients that make up a fragrance in a product to be disclosed, as it can be a signature facet of the product that the producers don’t want copied. Which is fair enough if everyone is honest, but unscrupulous manufacturers can hide any ingredient they want to under the simple title ‘Fragrance’. Natural scents are subtle, beautiful and not harmful!
- To ensure products have a long shelf life, preservatives and parabens are used. Studies are still being conducted on this, but it is likely this can affect our endocrine system over time, as these preservatives mimic our own, naturally produced hormones. A little scary!
So, it’s wise to look for natural and organic products and ingredients whenever you can!
