Generally speaking, “organic and natural” ingredients are derived from natural sources with no synthetic compounds. Taking it a step further, “organic and natural” ingredients are supposed to contain only plant-sourced ingredients that are cultivated without the use of synthetic chemicals, irradiation, or pesticides. However, a question always pop up as to whether or not these products actually are made according to the claims about their formulations. Even more to the point—does any of this actually make them any better for your beauty?
The short answer is: There is absolutely something about natural or organic that reflects the quality of a product when it comes to protecting or making you look younger, healing your acne or dry skin, controlling your oily skin, or addressing other beauty concerns.
There are increasing studies showing the connection between illness and chemicals. We need to eliminate or reduce exposure to synthetics. Synthetics are simply not necessary in skin care and in many cases synthetics are downright scary. These ingredients are often fast acting and invasive. Sometimes they are causing harm we cannot see. Often this exposure rears its ugly head as skin irritation, chronic headaches, cancers, breathing disabilities, hormone disruption, etc, etc. The range of symptoms is too vast to list everything, but you can see how it covers minor symptoms right up to life threatening consequences.
I hope that this has been an enlightening introduction as to why organic and natural beauty and skincare is important. There are many benefits to using organic and natural beauty products, but most importantly, they are better for your health. And work in a way that lasts a lifetime.
