Why it's Better to Use Organic and Natural Skincare Products
Updated: May 8, 2019
Understanding the Natural Beauty Product Market
Environmentalism and green living are major factors why consumers have shifted towards organic and natural skincare products. The beauty and skincare industry knows this shift isn't just a trend, but rather it is here to stay for the long term. They realized very quickly that in order to keep a major percentage of these consumers they too needed to make some changes. And they have. The market is loaded with products claiming organic or natural ingredients. Like many emerging markets, there are a lot of misconceptions about natural and organic skincare products.
The biggest problem is the terms 'natural' and 'organic', are being used far too loosely. More often than not, a company promotes their product by saying they contain a particular organic or natural ingredient, leading consumers to believe they are buying toxic-free products. However, if you look closer you will find that most of these products still contain many other harmful chemical and additives such as formaldehyde, parabens and sulphates.
It is a well known fact that the skin absorbs topical products quickly and are stored in our tissues. Parabens (a preservative) is no exception. Studies at the turn of the century found that women with breast cancer often had high concentrations of parabens in their breast tissue. Formaldehyde (another preservative) has also been linked to cancer and leukemia. Sulphites have been reported to induce a wide range of reactions to sensitive individuals, ranging from dermatitis, abdominal pain and diarrhea and potentially even more serious affects such as life-threatening anaphylactic and asthmatic reactions. At Adagio Naturals we will never use any of these potential risky ingredients.
When buying organic and natural products its important to look for terms such as never been tested on animals, no chemical preservatives or additives, Non-GMO and all natural ingredients.
Having youthful and radiant-looking skin can be achieved by a combination of healthy eating, exercise, and by regularly using organic and natural skincare products. Adagio Naturals skin care products are created with this mind and are 100 percent handcrafted to ensure the highest level of quality. As an informed consumer it's important to review all the ingredients in a product before you purchase anything.
Adagio Naturals firmly believes that all of our ingredients should come from nature. We proudly share the ingredients of each of our facial cleansers, toners, makeup removers, bath milk, bath bombs, handmade soaps, lotions and creams online. Check us out for all your skincare needs.
