The use of natural and organic personal care products is increasing dramatically... not just in the United States but throughout the world. People are becoming more knowledgeable and concerned about the environment and the effect of toxic chemicals on us and the earth. Properly formulated natural and organic personal care products are not only good for you but are actually more effective than their commercially mass-produced chemical laden counterparts.
Safer and Healthier
Why are people consuming more natural and organic foods? Clearly, the absence of unnecessary chemicals and pesticides in the food and drinks we ingest make them safer and healthier for us. The use of natural and organic personal care products is just as, if not more important than, consuming natural and organic foods. While the body's digestive system is actually designed to filter out impurities, the skin, as the body's largest organ, absorbs 60% of what is put on it, directly into the bloodstream.
In the United States, the FDA has banned only nine personal care ingredients in the past 67 years, compared with the EU, which has outlawed 450.
Natural is Effective!
Essential oils, for example, primary ingredients in any natural or organic personal care product, are the concentrated, odoriferous derivatives of therapeutic plants produced for their own survival and protection from disease. These precious oils influence the plant's growth and reproduction insuring a long and healthy life. The molecular structure of essential oils is very close to that of the fluids and oils of our skin, accounting for our skin's natural affinity to them. They are readily absorbed and penetrate to the deepest skin layers. Regular use of essential oils in skin care has been proven effective in helping correct problems such as wrinkles, excessive oiliness, dryness, blemishes, and tone. Essential oils have the capacity to promote the elimination of dead cells, regenerate new ones and to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
Better for the Environment
Organic farming is safer for the environment. It helps to give back to nature by maintaining and replenishing the soil rather than depleting it. Organic farming is better for all of us in the long run. The use of natural ingredients over cheaper synthetic ingredients eliminates the release of hazardous bi-products released into the environment during the production of synthetic chemicals in laboratories and factories around the globe.
