If only you knew the toxicity level of ingredients in any non-organic skincare
product, you would never apply them on your skin again. Simply because these
toxins, when absorbed by the skin, are not just causing damage to the skin but to
other areas of the body as well. It’s no different than with organic foods, the
organically farmed vegetables and fruits are free from any genetic modification.
Genetically modified organisms are the result of gene modification in a
laboratory. These are products that are also treated with untold amounts of
pesticides, which when ultimately consumed as the fruit or vegetable is
consumed with all of those chemicals, and are not at all beneficial to one’s health,
and on the contrary, can be detrimental to one’s health. As a matter of fact, these
genetically engineered foods even pass on the consequences to one’s offspring. In
just the same way, the skin being an absorbing organ absorbs up to sixty percent
of the non-organic skin applications very quickly, not unlike the digestive system
absorbing food nutrients.
As far as our modern cosmetics and treatments go, chemical formulas have been
the sole source for everyone. And that is why the question about the efficacy of
organic skincare. For some time, this has been an area of extensive research and
development of the purest organic skin treatments, demonstrating some shocking
results, far superior to the chemical alternative. Plant extracts and ingredients
from even the food we consume are some of the ingredients that go into any
organic skin care product, so logically, the things that are good to eat are also
good for the skin. Furthermore, all the extracts and ingredients that go into a pure
organic product come from plants and trees that are cultivated naturally without
the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
Organic skincare products are rarely the cause of any allergic reactions or any
other adverse reactions. A precaution thought would be, if one is allergic to a
particular food, do not use products that have extracts of that food; for instance,
if one is allergic to olives, then the way to go is to avoid skincare products with
olive extracts in it.
On close examination of the ingredients of any non-organic product will display
the active ingredient of the product’s specific purpose is five percent as opposed
to ninety-five percent in that of an organic product. What is “active ingredient”?
Well, if, for instance, one is looking for an application that clears acne, the
“active” ingredient in it is only five percent in a non-organic product, which means
five percent of its contents heals acne and the remaining ninety-five percent
serves no purpose at all. With an excellent organic skin care product, it will be the
reverse, ninety-five percent of its contents are active and aimed at healing the
acne. That should give one the confidence that the organic product, depending on
brand and quality, is far more effective than any non-organic product.
