The beauty industry has seen something of a revolution in recent years with many brands turning away from synthetic ingredients in favour of natural and organic alternatives.
As consumers become savvier about the products we put on our skin and into our bodies, we've begun to see more items carrying labels such as non-toxic, natural and organic creeping onto our favourite brands.
But do organic products offer us better results and healthier glowing skin than their non-organic counterparts and are they worth the extra cost?
The term organic means that any living matter used to create our beauty products is free from unnatural fertilisers, pesticides or other artificial chemicals often used to protect the crop against pests.
When we consider beauty products, we want to help protect our skin from as many chemicals as possible and to safeguard against harmful compounds that can cause a variety of skin issues and harm our natural environment, so organic products would undoubtedly be our first choice.
The beauty industry has been hard at work tapping into this new trend and is continually offering us safer, more environmentally friendly organic ingredients that provide great results for healthy, glowing skin.
However, the term organic is unregulated in many countries and is often misused to persuade consumers that the product they are considering buying are entirely free from chemicals. In some cases, the crop may be completely organic, but chemical preservatives can be used later on during the manufacturing process to ensure a long shelf life.
Therefore, it's up to us as consumers to educate ourselves on the best organic beauty products by asking the following questions before parting with our hard earned cash:
- Are all of the ingredients in the product 100% organic or just some of them?
- Is the manufacturing process completely free of potentially harmful preservatives and chemicals?
- Are the retailers of the product known for their commitment to organic health and beauty?
If you can answer yes to the questions above, then you can rest easy knowing that you’ve got a great quality organic beauty product that isn’t just kinder to the skin, but will also help protect the environment too.
