Did you know that the average woman can apply 168 different chemicals on her body a day with her typical skincare routine?
The FDA is not strict about chemicals in skincare compared to other parts of the world. The U.K (E.U) is considered the gold standard in skincare. It is what Mahina Beaute adheres to.
With the plethora of skincare products out there, both natural and synthetic, it can be a little overwhelming in deciphering which to choose.
Products that incorporate synthetic chemicals do offer excellent performance in a shorter time frame, and sometimes at a more cost-effective price. But in the long run, they can cause wrinkles, dryness, and irritation.
It can also keep you in the same loop that you are trying to break free from, causing you to become ever dependant on the unnatural product. Synthetic chemicals are horrendous for your health, creating a toxic overload in your system, leading to skin sensitivities, allergies, and endocrine disruptions. Some lab-created ingredients to be wary of include the following, parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, propylene glycol, and triclosan.
Here are some of the amazing benefits that make natural skin care products a better choice for your daily beauty routine.
1. You Get What You Paid For:
Synthetic products tend to contain a lot of fillers and cheap ingredients. Being skincare formulators ourselves, we know how easy and cost-effective these elements are. Natural skincare uses products that are already abundant in nature and have been in usage for hundreds of years. Ingredients such as jojoba oil, kukui nut oil, pomegranate extract, and seaweed extract, for example, offer incredible anti-aging benefits that are nourishing and gentle for your skin.
2. Treat the Problem From Its Core:
Because natural skincare tends to use ingredients such as oils, different kinds of butter, hydrosols, and essential oils, they can penetrate deep into the skin's barrier while correcting cell damage with ingredients that mimic their own sebum.
This way, you are quenching your skin with the exact thing that it yearns for without any disruption to other areas of the body. Synthetic chemicals are foreign invaders. It offers a temporary fix while creating chaos that develops over time.
3. No Irritating Aroma:
The FDA does not regulate synthetic chemicals in fragrances. Fragrances are derived from petrochemicals and can cause a slew of health problems. Chemicals found in synthetic fragrances include phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors and benzene derivatives, aldehydes, and toluene, which are known carcinogens.
Natural skincare does not use these chemicals. Instead, they use essential oils, hydrosols, and extracts to give a pleasant smell while also adding beneficial qualities to the products.
4.Not Tested On Animals:
You may be shocked to know how many skincare companies test their synthetic products on animals. If a product is natural and only uses pure, wholesome ingredients, there is no need for animal testing.
5. Safe for the Environment:
Because there is no safe way to discharge toxic chemicals, there is the potential to harm people, animals and the ecosystem if it is released into the environment.
Because natural skincare does not use toxic ingredients, you can have inner peace in knowing that it does not contribute to the harm and deterioration of the environment and animals.
Switching to a natural skincare routine gives you peace of mind. You don't need to worry about harmful ingredients bombarding your body's ecosystem. Or the destruction of the plant and torture of innocent animals. Natural and organic skincare is the way to go!
