Why Natural and Organic?

I have not always been a believer in Natural and Organic beauty. As a member of the diverse retail beauty industry we are often times overloaded with false science and claims by the thousands of brands we represent. For years, I embraced Natural brands and their philosophy but never truly believed what they were doing was better, or safer than the typical brand.

I did extensive research on the topic of ingredients in beauty products and the effect they have on the body and found overwhelming reason why I should avoid such products and ingredients. I also began to think about things in a logical sense. Just because a Big Mac has some lettuce and onions does not mean it is good for me. It contains mostly gunk and fillers. Same thing with most mainstream beauty products.
A cream may claim to contain Vitamin C, but only contains a small percentage; the bulk of the product contains unnecessary fillers, silicones, health hazardous preservatives and chemicals.

I realized that beauty products should be viewed in the same way as healthy eating. Just as organic fruits, vegetables and whole foods that are unprocessed, without preservatives are the best for internal health, the same goes for what we place on our skin. Take a little time to learn the nitty gritty about the ingredients in your beauty products and I guarantee you will at least think twice before slathering it on.

What we place on our skin is absorbed and should be clean, nutritious and free of useless, unknown or harmful ingredients.

    • That we do! I am so passionate about organic health + beauty products, as the traditional are just loaded full of harmful and unnecessary ingredients. If we really stop to investigate these ingredients, it’s truly shocking how its even legal to have them inside the products we use and love. I have personally noticed a difference in my skin and health since making the switch. If you have any questions please let me know! It can seem a bit tedious and overwhelming at first, but it is actually easy and affordable, and you will notice a difference.

      • That’s so true, I think some of us are worried to find out the ugly truth because we love our beauty products too much to give up. Thanks a lot, I will do! x
