Women put an average of 168 chemicals on their body every day, according to a study by the Environmental Working Group. While men typically use fewer products, they still slather on about 85 chemicals each day.
With this many chemicals involved in simple beauty routines, it is no wonder people are looking to more natural ingredients. Using products with natural ingredients provides a peace of mind that simply cannot be obtained through unregulated products that use chemicals.
While our skin provides a protective barrier to keep out dangerous compounds, some chemicals can sneak past and be absorbed into our bloodstream. In fact, 60% of what is applied to skin can be directly absorbed. ☹️ Studies have found that our immune systems, moods, nervous systems and reproductive systems can be affected by commercial body care and beauty products.
People with sensitive skin also often react to the chemicals in conventional products. While some will still be sensitive to a few natural products, the ingredients in natural products generally will not aggravate skin. Plus, better-quality ingredients often mean better results. ✅
