Organic agriculture has been around for many years and organic foods can be found in most supermarkets. More recently however (in the past twenty years) the use of organic ingredients in skincare products has grown and been developed into almost every area of cosmetics.
We know the benefits of eating organic, sustainability, cleanliness and nutrition of foods, but unlike food, skincare is less regulated and the use of industrial chemicals and mineral oils for the skin is common. By replacing mineral oils with vegetable oils we improve the base of our products and by going one step further and replacing these ingredients with organically grown oils and organically derived ingredients we nurture the skin, effectively slowing its ageing process and speeding the healing process. Anything you put onto your body is absorbed and can potentially enter your blood stream!
Without ‘pure petroleum jelly’ and similar mineral oil derivatives our skin will dry out less allowing us to use less and nourish with organic vegetable and nut oils. Without synthetic aromas we won’t damage and mislead our olfactory system. Without synthetic preservatives and colorants we won’t potentially upset our hormone system.
So let’s stop harming our body and move back to basics.
And when using products certified organic and natural you can be certain that there’s been no animal testing – because certification bodies do not allow animal testing.
