Why are organic cosmetics a good choice

 

Choosing organic cosmetics is sometimes seen as a trendy choice. But beyond being a style of life that continually increases its adepts, organic cosmetics do have real benefits for us, and for the environment.

 

Free from Petroleum

Organic products are free of mineral oils and fragrances that can lead to allergic reactions, clogged pores, or acne. Also, Petroleum can affect liver and kidneys.

 

Not tested on animals

Most of the organic companies don’t do animal testing on their products, and choosing organic cosmetics encourages this path.

Free from Parabens

More and more studies show that the parabens found in different cosmetics can harm the body’s natural balance. Choosing organic products, that are free of parabens, will save your body from dealing with chemicals that can produce different types of cancer and accelerate aging.

Environmental Benefits

Organic companies are more likely to use recycled or environmentally friendly materials. Also, the use of natural plants and oils don’t harm the planet’s equilibrium, like in the case of using fuel derivates.
