It goes without saying when it comes to choosing our food, opting for the most natural and purest form is best for our health and consumption. Likewise, it can be believed that the best way to treat your skin is with natural ingredients. Even though we might not always choose to eat organic, our liver is capable in ridding of harmful toxins and chemicals. But when we put it on our skin, the story becomes a bit different.
Up to 60% of synthetic chemicals may enter the bloodstream when we apply something on our skin. Hence, using chemical-free natural organic skincare products makes perfect sense. While we’re no strangers to seeing the label ‘organic’ what does it truly mean? Organic skincare refers to organically grown ingredients that are pesticide free – ridding you the risk of building chemicals that may enter your body through the skin. So, if you’re in the market for a new skincare regime, why not checkout these organic beauty stores?
