Why use Natural Cosmetics?
For most of us the use of cosmetic and personal care products is an everyday affair. We use creams, lotions, soaps and shampoos happily unaware that they may contain a cocktail of chemicals. Your skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body and has the remarkable ability to absorb applied products into the bloodstream. There are so many potential irritants in conventional cosmetics that can cause damage to your skin. Surveys show that an average consumer uses as many as 25 different cosmetic and personal care products, containing more than 200 different chemicals. Up to 60% of what we put onto our skin may be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Soaps are one of the oldest and most commonly used cosmetics. Most people use conventional soaps to wash themselves, not realizing that they contain many chemicals that are considered safe in small doses. However, these small doses of chemicals that are absorbed into the blood stream build up over a period of time, potentially causing all kinds of skin problems. Organic, natural and herbal soaps on the other hand gently clean and moisturize the skin without causing dryness and a great for people with sensitive skin.
Having an organic skin care routine and using natural cosmetic products can help you to avoid feeding your skin harmful chemicals. Natural cosmetics contain many natural ingredients that are easily absorbed by the skin, keeping it smooth and healthy. Using natural exfoliants like apricot scrub can help keep your skin radiant and glowing without stripping your skin of its natural oils.
Natural creams and body butters that contain essential oils are a great way to moisturize the skin and keep it glowing. In contrast to the conventional cosmetics found on the shelves of stores, natural cosmetics have been specially formulated not to hurt or irritate the skin.
According to the Dr. Hauschka, a leading pioneer in holistic skin care:
“The average woman absorbs 30 pounds of the ingredients contained in moisturizers over sixty years.”
We use only high quality natural ingredients that include the finest essential oils, herbs and native plant oils to create well-balanced and nourishing formulations that feed and nourish your skin.
