Time To Ditch The Chemicals And Go Au Naturel With Your Cosmetics
We think it is time to make the switch to natural, organic and cruelty free makeup. Most of the cosmetics that we are applying on our face on a daily basis are filled with toxic chemicals that are seriously harmful to our health. The skin is one of the largest organs in the body so don’t you think we should be more conscious of what we are putting on it?
Products you put on your skin are absorbed into bloodstream and into the body. Going all natural ensures you will be free of harmful toxins and you can feel confident about what you are putting on your skin. Choosing natural cosmetics not only benefits your skin and well-being but it also means you are benefiting the environment and stopping cruelty to animals.
Below are the top 3 reasons we believe you should choose organic makeup:
- Good for your health: Parabens are the toxins that are found in almost all commercial beauty products on the market. It is said that using these products can increase your chances of cancer due to their carcinogenic and hormone-disrupting chemicals found in them. Therefore, it is advisable to use natural cosmetics derived from plant and mineral based ingredients. Many of these ingredients are ones that we recognize and can benefit your skin and complexion.
- Cruelty free: Because the ingredient list is natural there is no need to test on animals, which is a major bonus. Many animals that are tested on can experience harmful abuse from cosmetic companies due to exposure from the chemicals found in the products. Often animals are forced to stay in one place while toxic chemicals are poured on different body parts.
- Environmentally friendly: We are not only harming ourselves when using commercial makeup but we are also harming the environment we live in. Products that are organic and natural mean that less toxic materials are being leaked into our environment.
One cosmetic company that we highly recommend is HANAMI, a Melbourne based cosmetic company that is completely vegan (PETA certified), non toxic, palm oil free and make all of their products with organic plant and mineral ingredients.
