Natural products are definitely the better choice for yours skin. Here are some reasons why.
1. Environmentally better
Simply put: natural skincare products are better for the environment than are synthetic skincare products. The reasons for this are numerous.
Firstly, they do no harm to the animals or plants if they come in contact with them, and they are unlikely to have any consequences on ecosystems should the product seep into the ground. Whereas skincare products with chemicals or synthetic chemicals will do harm.
Secondly, manufacturing traditional skincare products requires extraction of certain ingredients, some which requires mining. Mining produces a great deal of pollution, which leaves a negative carbon footprint.
Natural Skincare products don’t necessitate such measures, and therefore cause no harm.
2. They're Safer for your body
When a lotion or balm is applied to the skin, ingredients can slowly sink into the bloodstream. From there they have a direct effect on many of the body’s processes.
A natural skincare has beneficial ingredients which do no harm, and are less likely to cause allergies or have adverse effects.
So, by using a natural skincare product as opposed to a synthetic one, you are essentially avoiding all negative health effects. This will result in you feeling and looking better.
3. Not Tested on Animals
Natural skin product manufacturers do not test on animals. There is no need to do so, as the ingredients are completely natural and are known to do no harm. So by using natural skincare, you are being more ethical and are safe in the knowledge that living creatures are safe and prevent you from contributing to malicious practices.
4. Packed Full of Top Quality Natural Ingredients
The easiest way to highlight the importance of using natural skincare is to compare ingredients between a natural product and a non natural product. The ingredients are very different.
In a non-natural product you will see such words as Triclosan, Glyceryl Stearate, Dye #4 etc.. These are made in laboratories and can be detrimental to your health.
Natural skincare products are filled with healthy sounding indgredients such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sweet Amond Oil, Organic Shea Butter etc… and they’re actually all good for you. They contain vitamins and compounds all which help the skin to function at optimal levels.
5. Much Better for your Skin
Natural skincare products are less likely to cause allergies. Some of the ingredients in non natural skin products can cause swelling, redness, itchiness, eczema and allergic reactions. As we get older, we are more prone to these reactions. They are best avoided.
Natural products are free of irritants and are beneficial to our skin.
