We spread all kinds of creams on our body to hydrate us, wash us with soap to smell nice and use make-up daily to make us more beautiful. But what influence do these products have on our body? We often forget that our skin is the largest organ of our body. The skin is one of our most important organs, not only are substances drained through the pores, hair follicles and glands in our skin, but a lot of substances also come in. Our skin consists of several layers, is semi-permeable, this means that a small part of the ingredients that you put on your skin eventually reach your bloodstream.
It is therefore perfectly understandable that your skin will not be happy with added chemical ingredients that close the skin or that will interfere with the natural functions. Unfortunately, it is hardly known to many people that many conventional care products contain mainly chemicals and that these are bad for your health. Often these products consist for the most part of water, diluted with chemical compounds and surprisingly few active substances! Derivatives of mineral oils, parabens, bromine compounds, triclosan, phenoxyethanol, chlorine, silicones, propylene glycol, PEG, sodium lauryl sulfate and synthetic perfume: all ingredients that can not only irritate the skin. They stifle the skin, weaken the immune system, cause allergic reactions, are harmful to the nervous system, disrupt the hormone system, are carcinogenic or are absolutely toxic.
Natural cosmetics contain only natural substances and ingredients that are gentle to the skin, such as herbal and plant extracts, nourishing vegetable oils and natural fragrances and colors, essential oils and algae. These ingredients work in harmony with the skin and maintain its natural balance. Natural cosmetics are therefore guaranteed to contain no synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes or synthetic preservatives that can damage our skin and our natural immune system. Natural cosmetics respects your skin and does not interfere with its natural functions so the skin can continue to breathe and perform its function.
Besides the fact that natural cosmetics are better for yourself and much softer for your skin, is also better for the environment. Nature is less burdened by these products and no pesticides are released into the environment. Many of the synthetic ingredients in regular care products are not biodegradable and end up in nature. The biggest damage comes from the rinsing of these products through the sewer, so the environment is once again burdened by the chemicals. Natural care products, on the other hand, are biodegradable.
