Organic products are sprouting up in nearly every industry. It is well-known that what you put in your body is important. Did you know what you put on your body can make a huge difference, too? If you use standard hair and skincare products, you may want to change up your routine. Switching to organic has many benefits.
- Natural Ingredients
Organic brands like Elm ditch synthetic ingredients. Instead, they use natural components in their products. Ingredients that are naturally occurring or derived from plants like aloe, shea butter, and jojoba oil are easy to recognize on labels. Harsh chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and GMOs are not part of the growing process, so your skin won’t absorb anything harmful.
- Better Results
There are two major reasons that organic products give you better results. The first is that organic plants contain more antioxidant vitamins when compared to non-organic ones. Those nutrients are passed on to you. The second reason is that organic products have fewer fillers. While non-organic skin and hair care products only have 5-10% active ingredients, organic have approximately 95%.
The ingredients in organic products are naturally grown, so they are much more environmentally friendly. There isn’t a negative impact on the soil, groundwater, or air from chemicals, and wildlife doesn’t have to endure as much pollution. Organic testing is usually cruelty-free, as well.
Because organic products do not use harsh synthetic ingredients, they are gentler on your skin. Users with sensitive skin face fewer allergic reactions and less inflammation. If a reaction does occur, it would likely be easier to identify the culprit because allergies to natural ingredients are more commonly known.
- Long-Term Results
Non-organic products often give quick results, but, unfortunately, those results don’t always last. Some chemicals can be invasive, and your body treats them as foreign substances. Eventually, there can be damage and premature aging. Organic products tend to work slower, but they are much gentler. That results in more long-term success.
- Healthier Body
The products you use absorb into your body and bloodstream. Many non-organic goods contain parabens, phthalates, and sulfates. The chemicals can disrupt your endocrine system affecting immunity, development, hormones, metabolism, and growth. With regular use of products, the concentrations can increase in your body. Using organic products helps you reduce the risks.
When it comes to beauty products, you should select the best. Your whole body can benefit, and you can feel good about helping the environment.
