Every day, you are bombarded with ads from large skin care companies, from online ads to magazine spreads, trying to convince you that their products are the “solutions to your skin care woes.” At the other end of the spectrum there are small companies which lovingly produce organic skin care and makeup products, and yet receive very little attention. Why the imbalance?
Your health includes your skin’s health
Over the last few years, people have gained a new sense of understanding as far as the importance of paying attention to the food they consume. There are still, however, a lot of people who give little thought to the products they use for their skin. If you avoid consuming food laden with synthetic chemicals, why then are you still using skin care products laden with synthetic chemicals?

The human skin is a miraculous organ with the innate ability to repair itself. Organic skin care products can help facilitate the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00R3B58VA” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”freshfaceclub-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]repair[/easyazon_link] of damaged skin without posing harm to the rest of body. A growing body of studies confirms that the skin can absorb chemicals applied to it, which then enter the bloodstream and are delivered to the rest of the body, and more often than not, the ill effects of these synthetic chemicals cannot immediately be seen. Skin irritation, allergies and hormone disruption are definitely just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
The reason behind the imbalance between the use of [easyazon_link identifier=”B001CL2LB2″ locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”freshfaceclub-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]organic skin care products[/easyazon_link] and products made with synthetic chemicals boils down to one thing: cheap ingredients. Synthetic chemicals are fairly cheap which means that big manufacturers have an ample budget to advertise their products. Certainly, the Food and Drug Administration’s lax standards regarding skin care and make-up products do not help the situation.
Read the lable
With a little sleuthing, you’ll discover that many of the skin care products that you find in store shelves use ingredients like DEA, Dioxane, Mercury, Nitrosamines, Alcohol, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate and Plyethylene Glycol, which are easily absorbed by the skin. On top of that, the human body is not fully capable of eliminating these once they wind their way inside the human body.
In contrast, you’ll notice that organic skin care products use natural ingredients derived from sources that are grown free from pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. Additives, if they are used at all, are sparingly used at most.
If you are truly concerned about your health and well-being, paying close attention to the ingredients used in the products you use for your body and skin is imperative.
