The world has changed for the better in many things. In recent years we have become much more environmentally friendly and we know the advantages of taking care of our planet. We have learned to turn off unnecessary lights, not waste water, try to eliminate the use of plastics and try to consume products that come from nearby places, in order to prevent transportation from affecting our environment. We know it’s best to eat organic fruits and vegetables, eggs and chickens from more natural farms, and fish that doesn’t come from crops.
In the same way, a lot of cosmetic products have entered the organic, ecological and natural note, which brings many benefits both for the planet and for our skin.
Today we are going to review the main advantages of using organic cosmetics.
1 Natural products
Organic cosmetics use natural and organic ingredients, but also eliminate artificial chemicals. That means that it uses not only healthier ingredients, such as natural and essential oils, clays, plants… and eliminates dangerous additives, parabens, paraffins and silicones and artificial emulsifiers, but also tries to make the ingredients come from organic productions.
2 Fair trade
This is the name given to the one that tries to eliminate intermediaries, enhances the participation of small companies, eliminates long-distance transfers with the consequent energy savings. That is why ecological cosmetology not only benefits the environment (less transport pollution because they are produced closer), but also benefits our neighbors (small producers who are close to our city) and also prices are usually lower, with the consequent personal savings.
3 Does not affect animals
Ecological cosmetology never tests products on animals. Any horror you might see in documentaries about how they apply mask, shampoo or dyes to animals to test their side effects is not followed in organic cosmetic products.
That means that no animal suffers so that we can use certain products.
4 Non-destructive packaging to the environment
Many of the industrial cosmetics spend huge amounts of money on packaging: the knob is made of thick glass, with a plastic lid, all painted in colors. Inside the container is a plastic lid to prevent spills. That goes in a very bright and very dyed box that inside, in addition, has several layers of protector. Outside the box, it is coated with a protective plastic. Wouldn’t it be better for the planet to use simpler packaging? Maybe they wouldn’t be that pretty, but they wouldn’t produce a lot of waste. Organic cosmetics try to make their packaging biodegradable and not contain excess elements and that those they have are recyclable.
5 Healthier skin
By eliminating chemicals, organic cosmetics are based on great raw materials, which eliminate the risk of irritations and allergies. They make the skin recover the ability to self-regenerate, since it uses non-abrasive elements. Being lighter products, the skin is not subjected to chemical excesses, the pores do not clog or clog. In short, your skin will appreciate much simpler and more natural products.
Check near your area which are the brands of organic products, keep in mind that their use will benefit the environment, your surroundings, your skin and also your economy.
