If you know us, you know that we are huge advocates of removing toxins from our lives. If this is your first time visiting our blog, WELCOME – and by the way – WE PREFER NATURAL.
Ok, now that we are all on the same page, let’s get down to the nitty gritty on why we need to keep our skincare as clean as we can.
1. YOUR SKIN AND BODY ABSORB WHAT YOU PUT ON THEM
Our skin is a living organ, and just as it can secrete (sweat, oil, etc) it can also absorb. Exactly how much of what we put on our skin is absorbed is unclear, but we don’t want ANY of the nasties invading our bloodstream. Spare some thought also to the products we eat or breath in – lipsticks, balms, perfumes, sprays and powders.
So reduce your toxic chemical load by keeping your skincare plant based and natural.
2. WE ARE BEING BOMBARDED WITH CHEMICALS EVERY DAY
By the time you wake up, shower, brush your teeth and put on your makeup you have likely been exposed to over 100 chemicals. Scary huh?
3. CHEMICALS ARE KILLING YOUR IMMUNE AND HORMONE SYSTEMS
Multiple ingredients in skincare, such as parabens (used as preservatives to make products last longer) have had scientific data proving that they disrupt our endocrine system. When you mess with this, you are more susceptible to reproductive troubles, cancerous growths, early decrease in skin cells and skin breakouts (ironic!)
4. NATURAL PRODUCTS FUNCTION BETTER IN YOUR BODY
Our bodies aren’t designed to have contact with chemicals, but since the world has evolved and we have produced man made substances we have had no choice but to be exposed. But this doesn’t mean we can accept them. Natural ingredients are metabolized better by the body, just the way nature intended.
5. THE PLANET IS BEING POLLUTED
It’s not just our bodies that are suffering, the environment is being filled with plastic bottles, water is being polluted by chemicals and the nano-particles in our personal care are disrupting marine life.
