I am often asked why organic is so important? My answer is purely simple. Considering the amount of contaminants in our foods, water and personal care products, it is to our best health interest to minimize this exposure by consuming organic foods and products.
Let me describe the term "organic". Organic crops, grains, herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables are grown and harvested without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or insecticides. The seeds are not genetically engineered and the farmers must have environmentally sound and sustainable growing practices. Sometimes farms are certified with certain organizations as organic to ensure integrity of their produce in the market.
Why is this important? Our skin is very porous and what you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. Many harmful chemicals such as paraben can end up causing damage to our organs after years of exposure to these substances. It is important to make sure the botanical ingredients we see in labels of products are of the highest qualities and certified organic.
When you think of all the chemicals that are in conventional products, specially the ones you can't pronounce, it is a little scary! Now think about those face creams and lotions being spread over your entire body everyday for most of your life.
The benefits of choosing organic ingredients in all your personal care products are numerous. Products made from natural and organic ingredients are nourishing and healing to the skin. They are formulated with great care. Some even formulate them "handcrafted" to retain its purity and avoid contamination with machinery. Purity is essential to maximize results on your delicate skin. You will know the difference after a few days of using a pure, organic product made with the sole intention of giving you peace of mind.
