We all, to an extent, are becoming more aware of the toxins around us and in the food we eat. Now, more than ever, people are moving towards eating organic, clean, and natural products and building their immunity. While we are being extra sure to avoid ingesting those toxins, we are still very complacent when it comes to lathering our skin and hair with them. 

Why Say No To Chemically-Synthesized Cosmetics?

Conventional or chemically-synthesized cosmetics are loaded with toxins and harsh and complex ingredients. Most of them are full of fillers and preservatives and they have very few nourishing ingredients. That’s why you need to be more mindful about what you are applying to your skin and hair. Being the largest organ in our body, our skin acts as the first line of defence when it comes to an infection, bacteria, or germs attack. When we apply synthetic cosmetics our skin simply absorbs them and sends them directly into our bloodstream. 

These complex ingredients that are present in synthetic skincare and haircare cosmetics are known to cause allergic reactions, skin irritations, and rashes and in the long run cause hormonal imbalance, cell mutations, and even cancer. Some of the most commonly used ingredients like parabens, phthalates, and petroleum by-products are the worst. The European Commission on Endocrine Disruption has called parabens endocrine disruptors because they mimic the hormone estrogen once they enter the human body and can cause hormone malfunction, fertility issues, and obesity. Phthalates enter the body through the bloodstream and can cause infertility, diabetes, and damage to the lungs, liver, or heart. While refined petroleum or petroleum by-products that are used in lip balms (very easily ingestible) and face creams are known to be carcinogenic when used long-term.

Besides these three, there are many such ingredients used in chemically-synthesized cosmetics that can do more damage than good to your skin, hair, and body. We have listed some of the common ingredients in skincare and haircare cosmetics you need to steer clear of:

  1. Parabens
  2. Phthalates
  3. Fragrances
  4. Aluminium compounds
  5. Formaldehyde
  6. Lead
  7. Refined petroleum
  8. Hydroquinone
  9. Triclosan
  10. Silica
  11. Oxybenzone
  12. Ethoxylated agents

 

So, you might be wondering what does this mean? Do you need to give up on your beloved face serum, those luscious red lips, or go makeup-free? Thankfully, no! All you need to do is switch to clean and natural skincare and haircare beauty products instead of chemically synthesized ones.

Why Switch To Natural Skincare And Haircare Products?

When it comes to switching to clean and natural skincare and haircare cosmetics everyone has their reasons. For me, personally, it meant doing my bit for the environment while making sure my skin and hair are pampered and nourished with some of the best clean and natural ingredients. Here are the five major reasons why you need to make this switch as soon as possible! 

1) Clean and Natural Plant-Based Ingredients

Natural cosmetics are made using clean and natural plant-based ingredients and 100% pure essential oils. Ingredients that are natural and easy to understand when you read the label. As a consumer, you need to be aware of what you are lathering on your skin and hair and with clean and natural beauty products, you can be assured that what you get is what you see. 

Unlike chemically-synthesized cosmetics that temporarily deliver super smooth skin or mask ageing, and make your hair shiny and smooth, clean and natural skincare and haircare beauty products help heal the skin from the inside and are super effective in making them healthy, glowing, and radiant. They make your hair stronger and work from the roots to give you naturally shiny and luscious hair.  

2) Toxin Free

Toxins are harmful substances that can cause health problems or diseases when in contact or absorbed by the body. Chemically-synthesized cosmetics have toxins in their harmful ingredients like parabens, and phthalates. While clean and natural skincare and haircare beauty products are toxin-free clean. Switching to toxin-free cosmetics is an important step towards improving your life and wellbeing. When you say no to harsh complex ingredients, you are actually protecting yourself from a host of long-term health implications.

3) Gentle On The Skin

Clean and natural skincare and haircare beauty products are just perfect for sensitive skin. They are made up of nutrient-dense, clean and natural ingredients that help reduce skin irritation, unlike chemically-synthesized cosmetics that are known to sometimes flare-up skin conditions. Natural beauty products have no side-effects and are also helpful in calming conditions like eczema, itchy or flaky skin, and more. 

4) Environment Friendly

If you are environmentally conscious, like me, then you would be happy to know that apart from helping yourself, you will also be helping the environment when you switch to clean and natural beauty products. 

Since they are toxin-free, there are no chemicals that are washed down the drain when you use them. This automatically minimizes the impact on the environment. It also helps restore our water supply resources and ecosystem. What’s more? As more and more brands are becoming environmentally conscious, they are even moving towards environment-friendly packaging. So no more plastic shampoo or lotion bottles lying in those landfills for years! Because at the end of the day we all want to leave behind a cleaner and safer planet for our kids, right?

5) Cruelty-Free

Clean and natural beauty products are cruelty-free. So unlike your chemically-synthesized cosmetics, they are not tested on animals.
