Organic skincare products are made up of natural ingredients. These ingredients are grown without using any kind of pesticides and fertilizers. Hence, going the organic way is not only an environmentally viable option but it is also a healthy option for our bodies. Our skin is a sensitive and thin membrane with good absorbent qualities. When you apply a cosmetic product, which contains chemicals, it can cause real harm to your skin. That is why it is recommended to go green and use organic products to beautify the skin.
Be very careful while buying cosmetic products from the market that claim to be organic. You should follow the given below checklist to make sure that you are buying a right product.
1. Simplify your Skincare Collection
We suggest you to not buy a variety of skincare cosmetic products. There is a variety of creams, lotions and potions available in the market, that make false claims of enhancing your skin. You should rather go for some good essential oils that can serve as a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, sunscreen protector, etc. all in one.
2. Ensure that Products are Natural and free from Toxins
You need to be very careful while buying skin care products from the market. Check the label of your product and also study what all ingredients it contains. Check the hazard scale of any product that you are buying on a scale of 10.
3. Be Careful about the Product containing Artificial Fragrance
Most of the cosmetic products contain artificial fragrances. These artificial fragrances are made up of a substance called phthalates that can trigger allergic reactions on your skin. Always go for fragrance free products.
4. Opt for Products That Come in Recyclable Packaging
If you have made up your mind to go green then also make sure that the packaging of the product that you are buying is also nature friendly. Avoid container that are made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), which is extremely harmful for the nature. If a container is made up of PVC, the letter ‘V’ is marked on that container. Check while buying the product and shun the product there and then. You can go for the containers that are made up of terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene, polycarbonate, bisphenol-A or BPA.
Choosing organic products is the best gift that you can give to your skin. While buying organic products from the market, check it thoroughly. Variety of products is available in the markets that make false promises to the customers and give no effective results. If you are opting for organic skincare you need to be cautious about everything from fragrance-free products to the containers of your favorite cream or lotion.
