Overall good health involves a head to toe selection of the best organic beauty products for your body. It’s not worth investing in quality organic shampoos and other body/face products if you then use products filled with chemicals that can harm your skin, or worse, cause adverse health problems.
What’s In Your Bodywash?
If you aren’t already using organic products, there’s a good chance that many of the products you are currently using contain a huge number of chemical substances that are not only cheap and synthetic, but may also be linked to certain cancers. Although there is a much greater awareness of the dangers associated with parabens, they are still used in many face and body care products. Parabens are artificial preservatives added to give products a long shelf life. They have been found in breast cancer tissue and more reputable skin care companies will no longer use them in their products.
It is worth keeping in mind that your skin absorbs over 60% of what you put on it, and while it is the body’s job to filter out toxins, they are routinely found in various body tissues. Buying that $10 product made for the masses might seem like a bargain, but what are you really getting? What’s in the shampoo that’s being absorbed into your skin? What kind of toxic chemicals are you putting on your face? What about the deodorants, bodywashes and toothpastes you use?
The list could go on and on and even include products you use to care for your clothes that contain artificial perfumes that are known to be endocrine disruptors. Always remember that your body will absorb a large percentage of whatever you put on it, so it might be time to rethink your routine.
Why Do They Test on Animals?
It may also be very important to you to use products that have not been tested on animals. But, why was the practice of testing on animals necessary to begin with? To see if they would be toxic to humans.
You may your favorite products, but remember, beauty companies are in the business of making money and sadly, profit sings a better song to some than public safety. That’s why the best organic beauty products for your body are the ones made from purely organic materials.
They Are Too Expensive
For those who are convinced organic means outrageously expensive – think again! There are more and more companies offering quality organic or natural products at very reasonable prices. If you’re in the States, you can pick up a moisturizer from Silk Naturals for $11.99. In the UK, Hand Made Naturals offers a face moisturizer for £11.50, plus they hand make each bottle once you’ve ordered.
In Australia, you can’t go shopping without bumping into organic and natural skincare products, with Sukin Organics offering their basic organic facial moisturizer for $9.95.
Not only does switching to organic-based products help keep your skin healthy, it lowers your overall toxic load. With the number of toxins our bodies are exposed to on a daily basis, this has to be a good thing! And, as an added bonus, organic products are loaded with natural vitamins and minerals that are really good for your skin!
We need to remember the origins of beauty products. Where did the ingredients from beauty products originate from? From plant materials, from nature!
For your best health, always buy organic. Look for the products that don’t contain artificial preservatives, dyes or any other type of chemical. You’ll not only look fantastic, your body won’t have to pay the price for looking good.
