Natural and organic food products seem like the perfect choice when it comes to our health. But, when it comes to our skin, we are not always conscious of our decisions. Skin is the largest organ of the body, and every day it comes in contact with makeup, fragrances, soaps, detergents, deodorants, and so on. Many non-organic skincare items contain synthetic chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde, and petroleum waxes, which may enter our bloodstream, build up in our bodies over time, and hinder bodily functions. Therefore, it is essential to look for ingredients while buying beauty products, so we choose products suitable for our skin type and do not cause any harm. Certified organic and natural products serve as the perfect alternative to chemical-laden beauty products since they help maintain healthy, glowing, and beautiful skin without causing any negative impact. Here are the top reasons you should incorporate organic beauty products in your beauty routine.
Provide sustainable results
While organic products contain up to 95% concentration of active ingredients, most synthetic skincare products contain a 5-10% concentration of active ingredients. Organic products work on the root cause of the problem and may give slow results, whereas synthetic ingredients in non-organic products may be fast-acting but cause harm that cannot be seen. With prolonged use, organic products help rejuvenate skin cells and heal problematic skin to provide last longing results. Since organic skincare products are gentle on your skin, they are suitable for even sensitive skin types.
Good for overall health
Look at the ingredients of non-organic skincare products; you will realize that they contain hazardous chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, mineral oil, petroleum, phthalates, sodium Laureth sulfate, parabens, and other toxins. With the persistent application, skincare products with synthetic ingredients can cause skin irritation, hormone imbalance, organ toxicity, reproductive issues, and even cancer. On the contrary, ingredients in organic products are grown without pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals; thus, they are entirely safe for the skin and overall health. Besides, organic products do not cause allergic reactions, irrigation, or inflammatory issues.
Organic products are nutrient-rich
Organic products are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients essential for healthy skin and hair. Most organic ingredients like cocoa, coconut oil, turmeric, pomegranate seeds, shea butter, argan oil, coffee, rose water, and green tea, among others, provide anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and anti-bacterial benefits. They help to keep the skin nourished, moisturized, and youthful. Moreover, organic products help reverse the damage caused by free radicals found in the environment to prevent skin disorders. Mineral-based ingredients like titanium oxide, zinc oxide, and iron oxide found in organic sunscreens help protect the skin naturally from the UV rays and thus prevent premature aging and pigmentation. Organic products are formulated with potent bio-active ingredients and work on a cellular level, unlike regular skincare that provides temporary smoothness but harm the skin in the long run.
Promotes healthy hair
Regular application of chemical-based hair care products can leave you with adverse issues like split ends, irritated scalp, premature greying, hair fall, etc. Right organic products can solve common hair care issues and help nourish the scalp, provide shine, stimulate hair growth moisture roots, reverse greying, and restore hair health. Organic hair products maintain the correct pH of the scalp and do not strip your hair of its protective oils, thus preventing breakage and leading to beautiful locks.
