It is unfortunate that many people are buying highly promoted beauty care products in the hopes they can achieve great looks and beautiful skin. Unfortunately, many of the chemicals used in these products are completely unregulated by the government. This means most people have no idea what they’re putting on their skin. Here are some reasons everyone should choose organic cosmetics.
People Are More Than Just What They Eat
Just as when someone eats something, when they put something on their skin, it is absorbed into the body in much the same way. So just as a person should be careful about what they put into their body, they should also be equally careful of what they put on their body. Parabens and other common ingredients found in most beauty products have not only been proven to damage skin and lead to early wrinkling but has now even been linked to causing problems with a woman’s reproductive system.
Daily Chemical Exposure
Imagine going to work in an environment where the workers were all exposed to hundreds of harmful chemicals on a daily basis. This would likely lead to many who quit or go on some type of strike in order to improve the work environment. But with beauty treatments, people pay large amounts of money to put this junk on their body and face every single day. They are unwittingly exposing themselves to hundreds of chemicals known to cause skin cancers, thinning of the skin, and early aging and wrinkling.
It is not only the people who are putting this on their bodies that are at risk. Often a woman who is pregnant may unwittingly use these products on her skin which is then absorbed into her body and passed on to the child. Links have been clearly made showing these products sometimes cause birth defects. Even when there are no evident conditions caused by the use of these products in the newborn baby, those effects may show up down the road. Some of these products contain fragrances which have hundreds of harmful chemicals and even when a newborn or young child is no longer in its mother’s womb the baby can breathe in the fragrance and be exposed to the chemicals.
The use of chemical based beauty products contributes to environmental pollution to the Earth and to its water. Users flush the chemicals down the toilet or allow them to go down the drain when they remove the products from their skin. This pollution finds its way into plants and animals and in some cases, these are then consumed by humans further damaging their bodies.
The way to avoid the issues discussed above is by using organic cosmetics. They are healthier for the skin and body and for the environment. Even if they are a bit more expensive they are worth it to help ensure that harmful chemicals are not being used. It just makes good sense that anyone trying to make themselves look better with these products, use the ones that can promote healthy skin.
