Why Use Organic Body Scrubs?
What could be more invigorating than scooping out a handful of nice and fruity body scrub after a long and tiring day? Problem is, many body scrubs nowadays are just full of harmful ingredients that can hardly help your skin and even your health in the long run. They’re usually very harsh on the skin, stripping it of its natural oils and causing nasty irritation. Of course, those plastic microbeads are just totally bad for the environment, ending up eaten by aquatic life or polluting our waterways.
If you’ve been using popular skin products, you may have noticed oil buildup clogging your pores. This is the primary reason you should regularly exfoliate your face (once or twice a week is good). Not only does this unclog your pores, but it also gets rid of your dead skin cells, exposing newer, more beautiful skin. There’s no doubt that exfoliation is a must for maintaining flawless skin, but what about those harsh chemicals found in most popular body scrubs?
The solution is easy: go for organic. Below is why:
Adults usually deal with at least 168 toxic chemicals on a daily basis, from parabens to phthalates to mineral oils and more, in the cosmetic and body care products they use. These are all carcinogens, or cancer-causing agents. Read more about skin care at http://edition.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/personal/01/17/o.beautiful.skin/.
High Skin Absorbance
Your skin has a high capacity to absorb everything you expose it to. Your lipstick, deodorants, moisturizers, etc. — all of these end up in your bloodstream as though you actually ate them. As we all know, these things are chemical-laden and therefore bad for your health.
Increasing Autism, Birth Defect and Cancer Rates
This is no mystery, considering the huge amount of toxins that the general population is exposed to because of their daily use of cosmetic and personal care products.
Growing Infertility in Women
Studies show pregnant women and those of childbearing age have a greater chance of becoming infertile or having problems with their reproductive systems due o their continuous exposure to common chemical ingredients.
Studies have shown that unborn babies or fetuses can have as many as 232 chemicals in their umbilical cord blood.. This shows that exposure to chemicals begins in vitro, and its harmful effects can stay on for life.
Absence or Lack of Safety Testing
Most, if not all, mainstream skin and body care products — and that includes body scrubs by Weal Skin Yoga — are not tested for safety. In fact, only a total of 9 ingredients were banned or restricted by the FDA in the last 67 years.
Organic Just Works Better
Finally, organic skin care products are more effective simply because they contain nothing that can disturb your body’s natural state. As long as you’re sure that the product is indeed organic, it should be for keeps, go here!
