If you don’t quite get what all the fuss is about, let us tell you about some of the best reasons to be switching to naturally-based skincare products.
Firstly, we only have one planet. Consumers are becoming more vocal about demanding that big multinationals change how they are polluting the earth to produce synthetic products.
Unfortunately, when you have done it the same way for the last one hundred years, it is difficult to change the culture and the processes needed to reduce the environmental impact. It is up to consumers to choose with their wallets and support the brands that are working towards a sustainable future.
When you compare a natural ingredient product with a synthetic product, the natural products are much safer for your skin. Some chemicals that are added to products to extend their shelf life can cause irritations to your skin. Breakouts, rashes, and infections can be a common occurrence. Instead, stick to a natural ingredient product and know you will not have an adverse reaction to it.
There are so many brands that are still testing their products on animals. This inhumane and unnecessary practice will only stop when consumers band together and insist that these practices stop.
Natural ingredient products do not need to be tested on animals, do not harm any living beings, and are far more ethical in their manufacturing processes.
When you scan the ingredients list of products, you will notice that synthetic products contain unfamiliar and hard-to-pronounce ingredients. The lab-produced chemicals can be harmful to your body and should be avoided. On the other hand, natural ingredients are very familiar to you, like lemon juice, aloe vera, and argan oil.
Using natural products adds moisture to your skin and does not detract from your body’s biological functions. Some synthetic ingredients irritate sensitive skin to the point of allergic reactions. You should avoid ingredients like parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, synthetic dues, propylene glycol, and triclosan.
Natural products are packed with all the good nutrients you need for your skin, and the best part, they are all found in nature.
