    The Amazing Benefits of Using Organic Skincare Products


    Non-organic skincare products contain harmful ingredients

    Pick up a bottle of any non-organic skincare product and read its ingredients label. How many ingredients can you actually recognize? It can be kind of scary to reflect on how many mysterious and harsh ingredients are loaded into non-organic skin care products, and how popular a lot of them are despite how bad they can be for you. 

    Studies have found that non-organic skincare products can contain mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, and many other chemicals that, with long term use, can cause skin irritation, hormone imbalance, organ toxicity, and even cancer in more extreme cases. There is so much concerning information that most people do not consider when picking out skincare products for themselves. Here at Natural Radiant Life, we strongly encourage everyone to go the more natural, organic route as you can be confident in what you are putting on your skin, and therefore into your body as well.

    Organic skincare products are made of natural ingredients

    Now read the ingredients label of any organic skincare product. You'd probably recognize most, if not all of the items there. Not to mention, there are significantlyless ingredients in organic products, because of the simple fact that it takes less to make a quality product when it is entirely composed of quality ingredients!

    Certified organic skincare is derived from plants and other naturally occurring ingredients that are meant to be put on our bodies, and we can feel safe doing so without question. More importantly, those organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. With that, you can be sure your skin and body absorb only real, natural ingredients that aren't harmful. If you are interested in learning more about toxic ingredients to avoid in skincare, theCampaign for Safe Cosmetics has anextensive list of some of the most important ingredients to avoid.

    Organic products are non-allergenic

    Without harsh chemicals, organic skincare products are less likely to cause allergic reactions, inflammations or irritations. If an allergic reaction does occur with the use of organic products, it would most likely be due to a natural ingredient (such as peanuts or strawberries), which would be far easier to identify than some concoction of random chemicals that you have never heard of.

    Organic skincare products work better

    Plants grown organically are found to contain a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. Because they are grown without herbicides and pesticides, their organic ingredients are also free from that contamination, which means the same for your skin and body.

    Moreover, up to 95% of an organic skincare product's contents are active ingredients.In synthetic skincare products, on the other hand, active ingredients only make up 5 to 10% of its contents, making the remainder a bunch of unnecessary fillers and chemicals.


    Going organic is better for your skin

    The synthetic ingredients found in non-organic products may be fast-acting, but they are also invasive, causing harm that cannot be seen. Their chemical ingredients may provide instant gratification and visible results, but most of these only help you aesthetically by smoothing out wrinkles, removing sunspots, and diminishing blemishes. A quick fix in skincare typically never provides long term results and benefits, so you are really just working against the future and lasting health of your skin by indulging in these chemically-loaded products.

    It is imperative to remember that with prolonged use, these chemicals may damage and weaken your skin as your body tries to cope with these foreign substances. As a result, oxygen exchange to the skin is reduced, causing premature aging and increased risk of developing sunspots. When looking at it in that way, it all seems pretty backwards– a product that is supposed to fix wrinkles, blemishes, and other impurities, is actually just contributing to the problem, in hindsight. 

    Using natural, organic skincare products, though, ensures that you get the real nutritional benefits from its ingredients. Natural organic ingredients such as coconut oil, honey, aloe vera, and shea butter, for example, are known to soothe, nourish, moisturize and promote smooth skin. Even though the results may be slower, organic skincare products are gentle on your skin and you can be confident in knowing that they won’t harm you in the long run.


    You're helping to preserve the environment

    Because organic products use naturally grown ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides and fertilizers, they don't leave a harmful footprint on the planet, particularly the soil, water, and air. 

    Organic farming is also better for wildlife, causes lower pollution from pesticide and fertilizer sprays, and produces less carbon dioxide and less dangerous wastes. By using organic skincare products, you're helping to minimize your environmental impact and support the sustainability of our environment.

    I hope this has helped you understand the benefits of organic skincare products and how they're better for your skin and health. Better yet, going organic is sustainable and better for the environment, too. So invest in your health today and make the change to organic skincare products if you haven't already done so. You can rest assured knowing thatNatural Radiant Lifeonly uses certified organic ingredients, because we want nothing but the best for the health and wellness of your skin, at all times.
