That organic living is a conscious health choice
Cocoa and mango butters, lemongrass, vanilla and clove oils with avocado, papaya and macadamia might sound like the beginning of a healthy grocery list but they are just a few of the fresh ingredients we use. You can't judge a book by its cover, but you sure can judge your skincare and cosmetic products by its label. Most skin care products on the market today are made from ingredients that are not beneficial to the skin at all. Petrochemical by-products; synthetic fragrances; cheap chemical fillers and chemical preservatives are combined with one or two 'natural' ingredients - vitamin E, Shea or Cocoa Butter for example to produce products that are aimed to make you to believe you are looking after your skin.
As history shows, most indigenous cultures have used fruits, plant oils or nuts to heal and nourish their skin and also to treat sickness and aliments. Rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and emollients, nut, vegetable and flower extracts, as well as and clays and minerals, are wonderful sources of nutrition for the skin. On the other hand most skin care products on the market today contain only small amounts if any, natural ingredients.
Using products containing synthetic ingredients is like sustaining oneself on fast food, it feels and tastes good in the short-term but if consumed on a prolonged basis it only leaves you unsatisfied, while doing you damage you over the long-term. You can however help your skin by using genuine natural and organic skin care products made from ingredients that will support and complement your skin's natural processes.
