Italian cosmetic companies that offer organic natural products are always growing. Industrial cosmetics can create skin health problems mainly due to the harmful components they contain.
The skin absorbs 60% of the ingredients that are used for cleansing or skin care, therefore also the harmful ones. In industrial products you can find many substances of petrochemical derivation, such as mineral oils, petroleum jelly, petrolatum, liquid paraffin, silicones.
In the long run, the cosmetic products we know can turn into a threat to skin health and beauty, but why use natural cosmetics?
In organic natural cosmetics, on the other hand, there are oils and waxes of vegetable origin, products that are much more tolerated by the skin as they respect the balance of hydration and the pH of the skin.
Taking care of our skin, in fact, is not just an aesthetic question: it is about taking care of our health.
The health hazards associated with the use of emulsifiers or preservatives of petrochemical origin are proven by scientific studies. For example, some compounds such as paraffin, petroleum jelly or dimethicone are blamed for being carcinogenic. Furthermore, they can interfere with endocrine functions. In addition to not bringing any benefit to our skin, other than to plug its pores, preventing it from transpiring and generating blackheads.
Organic cosmetics don't hurt. Aggressive chemicals, on the other hand, can cause annoying irritation. The formulas within them do not contain irritating or toxic agents since chemical products have been abandoned in favor of natural ones.
Unlike cosmetics with petrolatum and silicones, organic products do not work by blocking the pores but by freeing them, since none of the components are treated with chemical agents that can dry the skin causing irritation.
They are totally cruelty free, i.e. they are not tested on animals.
They contain up to 50% more active ingredients, vitamins and minerals than chemically modified cosmetics, precisely because their components remain intact and retain their natural characteristics.
They are not toxic, on the contrary, they help our body to eliminate toxins and waste products used previously. Most organic cosmetics help the skin to regenerate and regain its natural balance.
Among the most popular natural cosmetics are those with anti-aging effects: in fact, in organic ingredients you can also find aloe vera, extra virgin olive oil, donkey milk, snail slime that slow down the aging process of the skin.
We face a new awareness, which sees in the return to products made according to nature a real philosophy of life. Many believe that natural and ecological cosmetics are much more expensive and therefore are not convenient. It is not so.
Don't let the price scare you. Many buy cheap cosmetics, even in quantity, and then end up leaving them unused. Go shopping consciously and buy a few but good organic natural products. Usually you get stuck on famous brands of industry standard cosmetics, thus spending more money. Better then to spend the same amount for an organic cosmetic. The price is often indicative of high quality organic ingredients.
In summary, natural cosmetics are effective. The natural cosmetic product contains a large amount of active ingredients that have real effectiveness. Thanks to the presence of this type of ingredients it is possible to obtain really relevant results on the skin. On the contrary, conventional cosmetics by creating invisible films act only on the surface of the skin, organic cosmetics nourish deeply, leaving the tissues free to breathe and visibly improving them.
They are not aggressive. These products rarely cause allergies and irritation precisely because they do not contain aggressive chemicals, which are instead present in traditional cosmetics. Natural cosmetics do not contain synthetic surfactants develop little foam in contact with water: they clean equally deeply and at the same time cause less pollution.
They let the skin breathe. Cosmetic products never create an occlusive film on the skin: it is essential, in fact, not to block skin transpiration. Organic cosmetics not only let the skin transpire, but nourish it without causing any irritation.
They respect the environment. Their ingredients, coming from organic farming, respect the natural cycles of the earth; no chemical fertilizers or chemical pesticides are used to cultivate them.
They respect animals: they are 100% cruelty free.
