Many consumers are geared towards shopping for natural items and that includes organic skin care products. However, you do have to be careful because the skin care industry tends to use these terms when they shouldn’t be. As a result, they continue to find their way on the packaging and in the marketing of tons of the different skincare products on the market. The problem though is that most of them aren’t all natural or all organic, so make sure you read the labels very carefully.
The reason why organic skincare products are so heavily promoted has to do with the amount of money to be made. The manufacturers are well aware of the shift in consumer trends. Therefore, they are going to offer what is being asked for if they want to make money. What they do though is advertise organic skincare products, but it is only when you do read the labels that you find out only a percentage of those ingredients are organic in nature.
I have done plenty of research and I am telling you now that there is nothing offered that is purely organic. That is because there has to be some type of processing that takes place for it to be delivered to you. However, that doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with certain types of processing either. Science can often enhance the benefits from organic skincare products so don’t turn your nose up at the concept until you know what it really offers you.
For example, herbal supplements are extracted from natural herbs and that process is one that is scientific in nature. Some processing has to take place with all of the various natural products offered out there. This process however, does ensure you are going to get the best you can from those ingredients found in organic skincare products. There are some harmful chemicals that are found in many organic skincare products and you want to be aware of them.
Never use organic skincare products that contain these types of ingredients as they will only result in further damages to your skin. Parabens are a type of preservative placed in skincare products. They allow you to be able to keep the product in the stores and at home longer. They have also been linked to causing cancer. You also want to avoid using organic skincare products that contain fragrances. They will cause skin irritations and you may have an allergic reaction to them.
There are also some very good ingredients you want to look for in regards to organic skincare products. By using the right products, you will start to love the look of your skin. It will be very healthy and you will feel confident about your appearance again. One of them that I use on a daily basis is called Phytessence Wakame. This is extracted from sea kelp in Japan.
One of the many benefits from Phytessence Wakame is that you will be able to stop your body from losing the Hyaluronic Acid. This is a very important part of helping collagen and elastin proteins to make healthy skin. You can also benefit from natural oils but you do need to choose them wisely. Otherwise, you risk clogging your pores with many that are found in organic skincare products. Mineral oil is the one that you want to make sure you avoid.
I have complied a list of some of the types of oils you should look for in organic skincare products. Babassu is one that you may have heard of before. This is a type of emollient that will make your skin very soft. This is perfect if you have dry skin underneath the eyes as this location is very sensitive to harsh chemicals. Avocado oil is a good one when you have very dry skin. It can also help to stimulate your body to make more collagen.
