Did you know there are more than 10,000 unique chemical ingredients currently used in skin care products in the name of beauty?
The scary truth is that skin care products that are laden with chemicals and toxic ingredients subtly harm our health in the long run through allergic reactions, skin irritations, hormonal imbalance, cell mutations, and cancer in some cases.
However, with the growing awareness against toxic skincare products sold commercially, you can now make better choices for your beauty and health.
Here are the reasons why you should choose toxin-free all safe skincare.
TOXIN-FREE IS WORRY-FREE
Safe products use ingredients that work with the body instead of against it. By using safe products, we do not only improve ourselves, but we support a healthy balance within our bodies. We no longer have to worry about allergic reactions or possible skin irritations with excessive use.
TOXIN-FREE PRODUCTS ARE EFFECTIVE
It wasn’t that long ago that we would have used herbs and plants to cure ailments and diseases, and now with the help of science and modern technology, we are able to pin point which are the best for our health.
Clinical studies have shown that natural ingredients are rich in essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals, which can be found in the same healthy foods that we eat every day. They can delay ageing and aid the body to produce new cells.
TOXIN-FREE PRODUCTS ARE SAFE FOR OUR PLANET
Remember that whatever we apply to our body or wash our face with, once we take a shower, the chemicals go down the drain back to our water supply. These chemicals are not only harmful to us, but also to the environment.
IT’S UNSAFE FOR HUMANS AND FOR AQUATIC LIFE
There is no process currently in place to take these chemicals back out and no definitive standards for human safety and aquatic life either. Even beneficial microbial life that thrives in the water ecosystem, as well as fish, are affected with the presence of harmful contaminants that are introduced to the environment by us.
PESTICIDES ARE HARMFUL
In the US, about 1 billion pounds of conventional pesticides are used yearly, which is alarming.
To make skin care products, beneficial compounds from herbs and plants are extracted using water and other liquids. Unfortunately, if these plants were sprayed with pesticides, the pesticides also come with the extract and are fed to your body in the form of creams, serums, shampoos and conditioners, and tea bags.
BAD INGREDIENTS BUILD UP SLOWLY
Toxic ingredients are sneaky. Harmful ingredients even in small quantities affect your health as they build up in your body overtime. For example, continuous use of products that are made from plants that were sprayed with pesticides can cause thyrodism, hormonal problems, some types of cancer, and nervous system damage.
ACHIEVE HEALTHIER SKIN
Believe it or not, the skin absorbs up to 10% of toxins you apply to it. It is the largest organ of the human body and being mindful of what you put on it is the first step for healthy and younger-looking skin.
TOXIN-FREE PRODUCTS KEEP THE ENVIRONMENT CLEAR
By using botanicals from trusted sources, you are not only doing your body a favour, but you are also taking the first step to protect Mother Nature.
TOXIN-FREE INGREDIENTS ARE FOOD FOR THE SKIN
The products you put on your skin go directly to the bloodstream, so ensure these are toxin-free.
TOXIN-FREE PRODUCTS HELP THE BODY MEND ITSELF
Skin has the ability to mend itself by producing new cells and by disposing dead cells. If you choose safe ingredients, you are helping your body heal itself in the most natural way.
To sum it up; we have the option to choose what we ingest and apply to our body. We can make a better choice and start caring for ourselves in the most natural way by switching to toxin-free products that are not only beneficial to our health, but also to the environment.
