It's that same thought every time when finding that new product. "Is my skin going to rash, turn red, get itchy, become irritated, have an allergic reaction?". It can be an extremely difficult life, living with extra sensitive skin, and finding that right moisturiser is certainly no easy task. Next time you're shopping for your cosmetics, go for natural and organic, and here's why.
Less Skin Problems
Reading your product ingredients is paramount. Becoming familiar with ingredient terms is just as important, if not more, than understanding what the product is supposed to achieve for you. Many customers were a little surprised when they discovered their bodies were vunerable to skin sensitivities directly due to certain synthetic chemicals used in their cosmetics only to promote a much longer shelf life. Some of these chemical ingredients are being researched to prove that they maybe harmful to health, and great debate is swamping the industry in a desperate battle to continue using these nasty chemicals simply to ensure the product can survive 3+ years on the shops shelf.
Common skin irritants include a range of ingredients such as added fragrances, wheat based emulsifiers, dyes and artificial preservatives. Although natural and organic products are beneficial for your health and beauty, we also need to be very mindful that everybody's skin is unique, and some individuals may still suffer from reactions, even with natural ingredients. That's why here at FYF, we provide Australia's largest collection of samples available, a great method to conduct your very own patch tests and at a fraction of the full price. Our members love 'em.
Zero Nasty Chemical Exposure
The ingredients used in our certified organic Australian made range is without the use of antibiotics, herbicides or pesticides. Organic certification is a voluntary process that confirms and audits that the manufacturing process has reached a certain standard, which includes the creation of products without the use of harsh synthetic chemicals and man made preservatives, ensuring that the end result is nothing less than some of the best organic cosmetics in Australia.
Reduced Environmental Impact
The less chemicals manufactured into our cosmetics, the less the chemicals will find their way into our natural world, including local water streams, estuaries and coast lines. We often forget that the planet often pays the ultimate price for our selection of consumable products. Next time your shampoo, or conditioner disappears down the drain below your feet, it's an interesting thought thinking about where those chemicals will finally end up resting. If not in your body, then perhaps somewhere else?
