5 reasons your skincare should be environmentally friendly

Using eco-friendly products has been all the rave lately and while this sounds like a good choice to make, there aren’t many sources explaining why. What exactly are the benefits of using these products and are they better for your skin in the long run? Let’s chat about it.

The safer choice 

Skincare has come a long way since the days of rampant paraben use along with other harmful substances. Now that we’re more aware of the damage these products can cause to the environment and our skin, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean that people have stopped using them as ingredients (even in small amounts) in skincare. Using products that are certified environmentally friendly, natural and cruelty free means you’re guaranteed safety from harmful products, making it the safer choice for you.

Better for the environment 

This is kind of a no-brainer, but let’s talk about why it’s good to care about products being better for the environment. With synthetic products, there’s a greater risk of harming plant and animal life  during manufacturing and when the packaging is disposed of. Natural skincare items take this into consideration and use packaging and ingredients that are better for the environment. This also means not testing products on animals.

Better for skin

Natural and environmentally friendly skincare is often packed with vital natural nutrients that are better for your skin and less likely to have adverse effects in the long run. What’s more, our range of products is free of irritants, which means that you can use it even if on the most sensitive of skin. 

Easier on the wallet

With natural and eco-friendly skincare products, often a little goes a long way, so you don’t have to worry about the constant restock and knock to your finances. 

Better for your health

Your skin absorbs ingredients, which overtime, make their way into your body. This means that if you’re using products that aren’t great for the environment (or you), you’re absorbing harmful agents and putting your health at risk. 

The truth is, humans make up part of the environment so if something is harmful to nature, plant and animal life, it’s probably harmful to you, too. Switching to a more natural and environmentally friendly skincare routine can help you improve your skin and maintain a clear conscience - we can’t think of a better way to live!
