1. Going organic is better for your skin
There is no doubt that non-organic skin care products contain harmful ingredients. The FDA in the US is way behind when it comes to calling out harmful ingredients in women’s beauty care. In fact, many items made in the US are not accepted in the EU and other parts of the world as they have already defined and banned as harmful ingredients in skin care. Regulations were defined in the EU way back in 2009. An example of an ingredients banned in the EU and Canada but not the US is Parabens. Parabens are linked to reproductive problems, are ruled out in the EU but not the US, where they lurk in skin and hair products. Aside from the potential toxic and harmful ingredients in non organic skin care products organic skin care items are actually more safely absorbed into the skin.
2. Organic skin care products are made of natural ingredients
Organic Skincare requires that the ingredient is farmed (grown and prepared) without pesticides, chemical fertilizers, GMOs, sulphates/parabens or antibiotics. Natural ingredients are healthy and safe for not only your body and skin but for the environment. Many organic products are also packed in green packaging. Dark glass bottles (since there aren’t preservatives) and recyclable cardboard are commonplace. You can help get more beautiful while also reducing your carbon footprint.
3. Organic products are better for sensitive skin
Nearly 50% of the US population suffers from skin sensitivity. In a recent study done by the National Library of Medicine, 44.6% declared having “sensitive” or “very sensitive” skin. Women were more concerned than men (50.9% vs. 38.2%). Since truly organic products have transparent ingredient labeling it is much easier to identify any allergies in advance. Typically, organic ingredients are absorbed into skin with minimal difficulties.
4. You’re supporting cruelty-free products
Cruelty free means that the product and ingredients have not been tested on animals. Many organic products are also vegan. If a product is vegan products are free from animal ingredients and haven’t been tested on animals. Many cruelty free and vegan items have icons on there packaging but other smaller businesses may not have the official logos as they require payment and certification. A truly organic product has completely transparent labeling relative to ingredients and production processes so if you see a product that makes the claim but is not transparent in labeling then you should steer clear.
5. You’re supporting small business
Most of the 100% organic skin care companies are small businesses vs large corporations. They also tend to be owned and operated by women and minorities. Choosing organic skin care can do amazing things for you and for society overall.
In summary, organic skincare is best for your skin and best for the world around you. If you’d like to try some Amalie organic skincare products, please use promotion code NEWBIE when checking out and get 20% off.
