Why Organic Products Directly Improve Your Health More Than You Know
When it comes to food and what we consume into our bodies, we are careful to opt for fresh foods or produce to ensure that it is free from unwanted pesticides, insecticides and other chemicals used.
Similarly, it is important to care for our skin as the largest organ in our bodies and keep it radiant, because healthy skin is one of the biggest indicators of our inner health.
For cosmetics or skincare products, while some authorities or large brands maintain that chemicals typically used (e.g. parabens, petrolatum, phthalates, synthetic polymers, synthetic fragrances) are safe in small quantities, no one really knows the long-term effects when absorbed into our system.
Besides taking a precautionary approach and avoid the use of chemicals in our daily lives, here are top reasons why organic products should be your natural choice:
- Gentle and kind to your skin
People with sensitive skin will know how easily irritated it can be, and products with chemicals and other strange ingredients often leave skin feeling dry, red and sore. Organic products are kinder to your skin, leaving it feeling smooth and nourished and will work just as effectively.
- Protects your health
Our skin is very absorbent, and the ingredients of what we use are getting absorbed into our bodies. American women use an average of 12 products a day – nearly 200 chemicals.
Chemicals like formaldehyde - found in some body wash and endocrine-disrupting chemicals like parabens and phthalates, can be destructive to our physical health. Studies have shown that exposure and use of chemicals may lead to health problems like allergic reactions, respiratory problems and fertility issues. It is best to avoid use of chemicals in our products for better health in the long run.
- Smells fresher and better
When ingredients are organic, everything is naturally-scented. Botanical extracts like Dew To Nature’s range of organic products are never an imitation. After a few weeks, you’ll be able to notice the difference between an imitation fragrance and a natural fragrance and you’ll never want to switch back.
- Friendly to the environment
Synthetic chemicals if exposed to the environment can bring bio-active components in the ecosystem which affect the health of animals, water species as well as plant life. Organic products are friendly to the environment since they are made from natural components. We can play a part to ensure our environment is sustainable for future generations.
