"...What we put on our body is just as important as what we put into it..."
Think of all the patches available for weight loss, quitting smoking etc, they all work by absorption through our skin. Since our personal care is also absorbed through the skin, so to do the chemicals that are carried in the personal care items. Organic skincare products work effectively without all of the chemicals, which can cause health problems. As with organic food products, organic skincare products come from all natural ingredients and contain no harmful chemicals.
Organic skin care should be made from ingredients certified to organic food industry standards. Each country has its own measure and regulatory agency on the production of anything that proclaims to be organic. If a product proclaims itself to be organic, it must contain all organic products. However, if a products packaging says it is simply "organic" it can contain up to 5% of material that would be considered non-organic. It doesn't sound like much and granted most people don't mind. However, 5% IS 5% and this can make all the difference to some.
"... PLEASE, Go Organic...Its not rocket Science. We are killing oursleves with "Kindness". If we don't wake up to the poisons we infect ourselves with on a daily basis not only will it be our own future health to contend with but our childrens also as we pass on genetic imbalances to our kids..."
