Why Choose All-natural Cosmetic Products

Why Choose All-natural Cosmetic Products

There’s a lot of talk today about organic and all-natural products. Organic foods and clean eating are often the first things people think of when going all-natural, but there are plenty of other natural products on the market today.

Clothing, household cleaners, and beauty products are other areas where making the switch to natural can reap amazing benefits to your health and well-being.

You might not think that switching to natural cosmetic products can have much of an impact, but when it comes to the good health of your body, they really can make a difference.

Are bad chemicals lurking in your beauty products?

Anything that you apply to your skin can get absorbed into the deeper layers and into your bloodstream. This is troublesome when you consider that there are several ingredients that can can cause skin irritation or major problems with the endocrine (hormone) system. Start reading labels and check for these ingredients that should be avoided:

  • Propylene glycol – the same ingredient in anti-freeze, is used to keep cosmetics soft at room temperatures
  • Formaldehyde – a preservative, added so that cosmetics can sit in storage for years, increasing profits for manufacturers
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) – inexpensive foaming agents often used in soaps and even toothpaste
  • Triloscan – a synthetically produced anti-microbial
  • Phthalates – commonly used solvent in fragrances
  • Synthetic colors and fragrances – usually the main cause of irritation and allergic reactions. Sensitivities can build up due to repeated exposure

All-natural cosmetic products are free from these additives and other ingredients that can cause skin irritation and put the body at risk from other complications. The best reason to use pure, natural ingredients is for the safety of your body, brain, and blood.

Healthy living means more than just hitting the gym and eating clean. It means avoiding synthetic products and using those that are kinder to you and to the planet. Botanical and natural beauty products are another step along the path to living well and being healthier.

    Made me think more things I took for granted-that all products in cosmetics would be good for you

      Like many other people I know, I was never concerned with the ingredients I was putting on my face. Only recently have I been seriously paying attention. I read the labels now and I won't purchase makeup that has anything but natural ingredients. I am grateful to the companies who have showed concern by changing their way of manufacturing their products. Thank you.

    I recently moved into a new place and broke out in hives from head to toe that lasted a week and were extremely itchy. I have a feeling they used a chemical of some sort that caused my hives when they cleaned the house.

    I think "all natural" products are a great option for some people. But if you have a medically-determined skin condition you may need to be careful, and may have to use a prescribed man-made treatment.

    I've been increasingly concerned about my cleaning products and cosmetics but it seems difficult to make a complete switch when it comes to make up. Natural seems to either come at a hefty price or not work very well... Or both.

    What's wrong with having an antimicrobial ingredient in products? It's there to keep items from spoiling so we don't get sick or die!

    • Utama Spice
      by Utama Spice

      Many of the artificial anti-microbials and preservatives are added to prolong shelf-life, so manufactures and retailers can keep products in storage for years after manufacturing to increase profits. If you use natural ingredients that already have natural anti-microbial properties (e.g. coconut oil rather than cheep synthetic oils) then these additives are not needed. The question is do you want to put a natural plant-based oil on your skin, versus a synthetic oil than needs added chemicals to stay safe longer. This needs to be a personal decision, since there is lots of conflicting evidence and opinion on whether these are equal options in terms of safety and results. But we strongly and absolutely believe the natural option is the better one.
