There is a multitude of beauty products on the market that promise to beautify or rejuvenate the skin. While this is helpful to many people, there is one problem that likely isn't as concerning to as many people as it should be. The majority of beauty products out there contain a lot of chemicals. The government says these products are harmless as well as the companies who make them, but it really isn't known how these chemicals affect a person over time. Considering how many products one person uses each day, there is no way of knowing how much damage a person could be doing to their skin.
There has been a big push lately for organic products, and not just food, but in skincare as well. Superfoods like pomegranates and other fruits, vegetables, and other botanicals are being used to comprise skin care products. There are obvious benefits to using these products as the ingredients are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can naturally beautify skin and enhance overall skin health.
There are several websites devoted to natural skin care and like products, such as www.velvetskincare.com. This and other like sites are dedicated to health and beauty, but only with organic, chemical-free products. These passionate estheticians realize the potential dangers of cosmetic chemicals and their side effects over time, which is why they are in the business that they're in.
It should be noted that most of the stated benefits of these products is just that, stated. The FDA usually doesn't evaluate natural products, so it is up to the company making claims about organic products to deal honestly and the consumer to do research about the ingredients in these beauty products. However, the benefits of these organic creams and related products certainly outweigh the risks as they are completely natural, so unless the consumer in question has an allergy to an ingredient, there is no danger and no worry of side effects from cumulative chemical exposure from rubbing the product into the skin, where the product is absorbed.
There are documented health benefits to many of the fruits, vegetables, and other botanical ingredients in these organic beauty products and validated by doctors and experts all over the world. It is ultimately up to the consumer to research them and determine if the products are right for them, but the worse that can happen is that the consumer in question doesn't get all of the stated results or benefits. This is surely preferable to soaking unknown chemicals into the skin with unknown long-term effects.
Making better choices when it comes to nutrition is a great start towards a healthier life. Beyond eating more nutritious foods, there is the question of food safety and sustainability. How the food you consume is grown or raised can impact both your health and the environment.
It is but the nature of our rationale minds to question and seek answers as to our basic actions, hence this effort to find a clear justification for the propagation of the organic ‘movement’ as a solution to many issues created by the modern industrialized food systems. Here, we aim to break down the ‘organic talk’ and offer a simplified understanding.
Before we start about why organic, we’ll begin with a clear understanding of what the term ‘organic’ actually refers to on various levels.
At the farm level
When the produce is being grown, no chemical based fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides are used, the seeds are not genetically modified, no artificial growth enhancers are used upon harvest and artificial ripening is not done, which is a common practice for most fruits. Livestock must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones or any animal-by-products.
