What are the benefits of using organic beauty products?
One of the key benefits of using organic beauty products is to minimize exposure to chemicals. According to Pharmacopia, over 5,000 chemicals are used in personal care products and up to 60% of some ingredients in body products like moisturizer and bubble bath will absorb through the skin and into the bloodstream.
A study by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York found an average of 91 industrial compounds, pollutants, and other chemicals in the blood and urine of nine volunteers. Some of the chemicals detected were linked to beauty products.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and the first line of defense against many toxins. In my opinion, we should treat our outsides with the same respect that we treat our insides.
