Regardless of how sensitive your skin may be, using eco-friendly products will undoubtedly be a healthier form of skin maintenance. There are so many great benefits that come from using natural products for both you and the environment that surrounds you. Check out some reason to use eco-friendly products for your skin care:
1. No Chemicals
Research has shown that many conventional personal care and beauty products contain chemicals of concern that can disrupt your hormones, have been linked to cancer, and cause allergies. Just having these products in your home at all seems dangerous, much less using them on your skin! Eco-friendly skin care is a way that you can rest assured you’re safe from these harmful chemicals.
2. Safety Standards
When in comes to conventional skin care products and cosmetics, there are very few safety standards that companies must follow in the United States. These companies can almost make all of their own decisions about what’s safe enough to be put into their products. Even though these companies would never admit that their cosmetics are dangerous to use, unless they choose all eco-friendly ingredients, it can’t be trusted.
3. Irritant Free
Chemicals, artificial colors, and fillers in conventional products, especially beauty and skin care products, can cause irritation of the skin. Many people are even allergic to chemicals commonly found in conventionally produced products. Natural skin care products work with your skin instead of against it.
4. Future Health
The big concern with conventional products isn’t about the danger of using a single bottle of shampoo, but rather the exposure over a long period of time. The toxic chemicals can be compounded in a person’s body over time, causing long-term side effects. This is especially true when you’re using various cosmetics on your skin year after year.
Products made from conventionally produced ingredients typically have a poor impact on our environment. The manufacturing of chemical-heavy products puts those chemicals, and many more, into the air and water, and even more go down your drain in your own home. Switching to eco-friendly products will make a difference in preserving our Earth.
6. Animal Safety
While it’s tough to be guaranteed that a company hasn’t done any animal testing, typically natural products fall into this category. Natural products have no need to be tested on animals since they are completely harmless to humans. This is a benefit that improves both your life and an animal that would be otherwise helpless.
