Being health conscious isn’t only about what you put in your body in terms of the healthy food choices you make. It’s also about what you put on your body, in terms of the skincare products you use, and the ingredients they’re made of.
And when you consider that up to 70% of what you put on your body is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, you’ve got to wonder about how the toxins in non-organic products are affecting your health.
Organic skincare is more in demand than ever, and when the benefits include more radiant healthy skin, a happier planet, and more money in your purse, they’re hard to ignore.
So, what does organic mean? When a cosmetics company uses the word “organic”, it means the ingredients are organically farmed and don’t interact with synthetic chemicals like pesticides, additives, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or antibiotics. Soilassociation.org says that “organic” means the ingredients are also grown without the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Non-organic skincare products are dangerous for your skin because of the risk of carcinogens, and the fact that there is a cumulative effect as we use these products every day.
