Natural Products – A Win for the Whole Family
It is no secret that products sourced from the Earth, are extremely good for our skin and even hair. The skin is our body’s largest organ and protective barrier. It protects our muscles, bones and even organs from disease and infection. And because our skin is comprised of three layers, we must ensure that we are feeding it with the right nutrients required for us to maintain its health. This is why it is a good idea for us to be careful of exactly what we are applying on to it.
Although it seems as if naturally derived products are “the latest trend”, this could not be further from the truth. For centuries, products such as aloe vera have been used to accelerate the healing of burns and even reduce dental plaque. Coconut oil has been used to fight acne. Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory benefits and several other natural products have come in handy throughout the years. The remarkable thing about these natural products is that they are great for the whole family!
Here are just a few benefits of these naturally-derived products:
They Are Earth-Friendly:
Products that are made in factories, with chemicals have very negative effects on the environment. These chemicals are unfortunately diffused into the air, water and back into the environment. This causes severe damage. On the other hand, ingredients that are natural use fewer chemicals when being produced, which means that the environment is saved, in the long run.
They Do Not Irritate The Skin:
Chemicals that are contained in skin care products can cause breakouts, redness, irritation and one may even find that they are allergic to certain products. Because natural products lack extra additives, you may find that your skin immediately agrees with the product that you are applying onto it, and works very well over a long period of time.
They Have No Strange Side Effects:
Conventionally products contain parabens, which are used to preserve the shelf-life of products. The parabens then attempt to replicate the body’s natural hormones and this can cause serious long-term side effects such as hormonal imbalance, skin allergies and acne. Natural beauty products contain natural preservatives. That means less harsh side effects if one chooses to use these products on your skin.
