Organic is the way forward – there’s no doubt about that! Choosing beauty and skincare products made with organic ingredients is always a good option. Why? This is because organic ingredients contain the highest levels of minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients, which are highly beneficial for our overall health and well-being.
Organic ingredients are beneficial for our planet, the soil and wildlife too, seeing as they are free from chemical fertilisers and toxic pesticides.
A blog post published on Herb and Hedgerow very clearly covers the reasons why choosing organic for your beauty and skincare products is important. The article further explains the anatomy of our skin, and how the absorption rate of ingredients into our bloodstream can affect us. This is why we, at Bee Green, believe in the power of nature and organic farming.
Here are some of the harmful ingredients to avoid in your beauty and skincare products:
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS)
- DEA (Diethanolamine), MEA (monoethanolamine) and TEA (Triethanolamine)
- Propylene Glycol
- Synthetic Fragrances
We’ve covered the harmful effects of these ingredients and more in a separate post.
The Soil Association works hard to ensure that only the highest quality organic ingredients are certified. This means that the Soil Association logo on any product is a guarantee that what you see is good for you to buy, use and consume. Look out for their logo on the packaging to be certain that what you’re buying is truly organic.
