Going green whether it is in your diet or in skincare is not always easy. With so many different choices, labels and terminology, it’s often hard to understand and to know which is the best to buy. So let’s understand what Organic beauty actually is and why it is almost always more expensive to buy.
Here are some reasons that will help you understand why that pure, natural and chemical free organic skin care is best.
We are trained to understand that anything labeled organic is supposed to be better for us. Marketing has always shown anything that costs more should be more superior, more effective and of course better for us. But the question stands, are certified organic skincare products really better for our skin?
Based on our research, organic products generally have a shorter shelf life because of the pure ingredients used versus the chemicals used in drugstore brands - that is 12-20 months as opposed to three-plus years.
Typical over the counter brands are usually filled with emulsifiers, preservatives, fragrance, texture/feel improving chemicals - leaving a very small margin for the actual natural oils which are supposed to be the main source of nutrition for the skin, this is also why they have a longer shelf life. On the other hand, with organic natural products, you’ll use less of a more potent product since they have higher concentrations of good-for-your-skin ingredients.
Yes, you can buy non-organic products with botanical ingredients, but you will still get filler non-effective ingredients that you don’t need on your skin.
