Many people focus on their internal health through diet and exercise, striving to fuel and treat their bodies with beneficial products. What many people don't think about is the health of their skin and how beneficial their skincare products are. Skin is a living, breathing organ that absorbs approximately 60 percent of topical products into your bloodstream. Depending on how many products you use on a daily basis, that's a lot of absorption of unnecessary chemicals. It's time to focus on what products you use on your skin and discover the positive benefits of using organic skincare products.
1. Organic products are made of natural ingredients.
Organic skincare products are made of natural ingredients, most of which you are likely to recognize. Only certified organic products are made from plants and naturally occurring ingredients, and they must meet the same growing requirements as organic food. Pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, and other chemicals never come into contact with organic ingredients. Organic skincare products are always derived from natural, non-harmful ingredients.
2. Organic products work better.
The plants and naturally occurring ingredients found in organic products have a higher level of important antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. The lack of herbicides and pesticides used when growing organic plants means they are pure and free of chemical contamination that can affect their naturally occurring ingredients. Approximately 95 percent of an organic product's ingredients are active, compared to only 5 to 10 percent active ingredients found in non-organic products.
Once you experience the invigoration and rejuvenation of organic skincare products, you'll quickly make the switch from non-organic to organic products.

3. Organic is better for your skin.
Synthetic and chemical ingredients in non-organic products are fast-acting and known for instant, visible results. While you may find instant gratification with the smoothing of wrinkles, diminished blemishes, and reduced sunspots, these synthetic ingredients do more harm than good. Over time, synthetic chemicals damage and weaken your skin by reducing oxygen flow and cause premature aging and further risk of developing sunspots. Cheap filler ingredients can even cause irritation, increased skin sensitivity, and clogged pores.
Natural organic ingredients are full of actual nutritional benefits. Common natural organic ingredients like coconut oil, honey, aloe vera, and shea butter soothe, nourish, and moisturize your skin. Organic products may not have instant results, but they are gentle and work harmoniously with your skin so that it can balance and heal itself.
4. Organic products are better for the environment.
Organic farming methods result in lower pollution levels from chemical sprays, produces less carbon dioxide, and less toxic waste. Sustainable farming practices produce significantly less waste and toxins that are put back into the environment, which is far better for wildlife.
Another reason that organic products are better for the environment is that they are cruelty-free. Natural organic ingredients are known to be safe and harmless, meaning organic products will never best tested on animals. Using cruelty-free organic skincare products supports the movement toward banning animal testing in the beauty industry.
5. Organic products are better for your health.
Ingredients like phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens are all known carcinogens that damage your immune, reproductive, and endocrine systems. Using a range of non-organic products daily that contain these harmful ingredients exposes your body to higher toxic concentrations that can build up and cause health problems.
Organic products are non-allergenic due to their lack of harsh chemicals that cause allergic reactions, inflammation, or skin irritations.
Organic skincare products are effective, good for your health, your skin, and the environment. There is no better time than now to discover the benefits of switching to organic skincare products.
