Lay on That Skin Balm! Don't Worry, It's Organic!

If you have not been hibernating for the last 25 years (give or take) no doubt you have noticed that everything is going organic. From our food, to our clothes to, well, just about everything…including our skincare. Organic products made with organic ingredients are better for us, period, but why is that so important for the products we put on our skin?  Natural and organic skincare offers numerous benefits.  Let's explore some of them:

Avoiding Harmful Chemicals: One of the primary reasons people turn to natural and organic skincare is to avoid potentially harmful chemicals found in conventional products. Many mainstream beauty and skincare products contain ingredients like parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances, which can be irritating to the skin and even disrupt hormonal balance. Natural and organic skincare products, on the other hand, rely on plant-based ingredients and are free from these potentially harmful substances. As a result, you will have a drastically lower likelihood of experiencing allergic reactions and skin sensitives, unlike products laden with synthetic ingredients and harsh chemicals.

Holistic Self-Care: Organic skincare aligns with a holistic approach to self-care, which must include thinking about and taking care of our largest organ, the epidermis, our skin.  

Dr. Marcelo Buzzi, who has spent the last twenty years working in the area of regenerative medicine and skin repair says: “Our nervous system, which controls hormonal balance, immunity, and various physiological functions of the body, is closely connected to the skin, as the cells that comprise the skin and the nervous system have the same embryonic origin. Therefore, any physical, chemical, or biological aggression to the skin could affect a range of physiological processes controlled by the nervous system.”  

In other words, by incorporating natural and organic skincare into your daily routine, you are not only caring for your skin's health but also taking care of you, your entire personal health system.  

Long-Term Benefits: Everyday use of natural and organic skincare products often provide long-term benefits for your skin. The plant-based ingredients found in these products have been used for centuries in traditional medicine and skincare rituals. They are known for their nourishing, healing, and rejuvenating properties. For example, ingredients like olive oil, and bee-based products like honey, propolis and beeswax, have moisturizing and soothing properties that can help improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. In some cases, the use of these products in skincare and healing can be traced back thousands of years ago, to the Egyptians and Ancient Greeks.  

 Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly: By choosing natural and organic skincare, you are not only taking care of your skin but also contributing to the well-being of the planet.Conventional skincare products often rely on unsustainable practices, such as excessive water consumption, deforestation, and other practices that contribute to pollution. In contrast, natural and organic skincare brands use ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides and fertilizers, which don’t leave a harmful environmental footprint on our soil, water and air.  

Going organic for your skin is not only wise, it is also becoming easier.  Be sure to look for Certified Organic products that have been vetted by a third-party organic certification agency, like the products made by Sweet Bee Naturals.
