Read below to discover 6 good reasons to go for organic beauty products!
1) You avoid chemicals
Most of the traditional cosmetics sold in stores contain chemicals that have not been certified without danger to your health. For example, parabens and perfume (both very common ingredients in beauty products) are harmful to you. Going for organic cosmetics is a good way to avoid this risk.
2) Organic cosmetics contain more nutrients
Commercial products usually contain a very small quantity of nutritional ingredients. They mask the real issues instead of truly improving the health and the quality of your hair, your skin and your nails.
In the opposite, organic products contain vitamins such as Vitamin C and E that are amazing antioxidants and that fight skin aging. They are also rich in Vitamin A that is the dull skin best friend and that will make you shine!
Essential oils are the best example we could take. They are 100% pure and you are sure that they contain what you look for. That said, be cautious while using those. Most of the time they need to be diluted before use. You can browse our essential oil shopping page if you feel like giving it a try
