Why should you choose natural skincare products?
~Natural: existing in or derived from nature; not made or caused by humankind.~ taken from Oxford Dictionaries
When it comes to cosmetics, natural is not a term that is regulated in the UK. However, when labelling a product as natural, the producers/ manufacturers must be able to prove that they are not misleading customers by calling their products ‘natural’.
Natural is trending...
Natural cosmetics are becoming more and more popular as people are starting to learn more about the effects of the ingredients that they are putting on to their skin.
Natural Products are better...
Products labelled natural normally contain plant based ingredients such as herbs, vegetable oils, flowers, essential oils, etc. The skin is the largest organ in the body and it can take in up to 60% of the products applied to it. Natural substances are generally much easier for the body to break down, when compared with artificial substances. They are also less likely to cause allergic reactions and irritation when compared to more artificial products.
Caution: Just like all other products, natural and organic ingredients can cause irritation and allergic reactions. To avoid such consequences you should do a test patch before using new a product. Knowing what triggers your allergies is also a good thing too.
