In this day and age, we are increasingly aware as a society, how important it is to eat organic and as natural as possible. Unfortunately, we sometimes fail to apply this rule to the outside of our body. We are simply not aware that our skin is the largest organ in our system; absorbing toxins and nutrients by whatever products we put on it. The general rule of thumb that applies to food, should also apply to our skin care products; if it’s over 3 syllables or you can’t pronounce it, it’s not worthy of being on your body!
Many of our rashes and skin problems are often an allergy or sensitivity to skincare products we’re using. A majority of the products on the markets today contain chemicals and ingredients that are harmful to our environment and bodies – all in the name of saving the manufacturer a few dollars. For instance, mineral oil / petroleum are by-products of gasoline and are known carcinogens, yet we are advised by professionals to use products that contain these items, for relief of skin irritations on ourselves and even on our infants!
