Skin is the largest organ of the body and it needs to be well taken care
of as your skin reflects your personality and your personal hygiene
quotient. In fact, as a matter of fact your skin provides a better route
to toxins and poisons to your bloodstream rather through the food you
intake. Many popular brands of cosmetics use toxic substances as is seen
by the many serious ill effects of the cosmetics on the skin and health
of the people, for instance, skin infections, allergies, rashes, etc.
This is precisely the reason why people are getting inclined towards
natural cosmetics as being natural; they pose less threat to the skin
and the health.
Toxic substances like lead, nanoparticles, petrochemicals, artificial
fragrances or phthalates are not present in the natural cosmetics as
they don’t make use of toxic substances as well as FD&C dyes,
instead they contain mineral pigments. They use products completely
natural and herbal, made from plant extracts rather than using DEP for
texturizers purpose. They help to protect you from the harmful UV rays
by natural ingredients and not nanoparticles.
Natural cosmetics are herbal products and thus they are very safe to use
for the skin. There are many ingredients in the nature which can be
used without any side effects and thus the natural cosmetics make use of
such natural ingredients rather than the harmful chemicals. Things like
organic herb extracts, seeds, plant leaves, organic waxes, oils
extracted from the barks of the trees, etc are put to use in the
preparation of these natural cosmetics. The best feature of such natural
ingredients is that they can be used by people with sensitive skin as
well and they act as perfect astringents, toners, moisturizers,
exfoliating agents, sun blocks, etc, without providing any side effects
to the users.
