Over the last five years I have learned about the importance of supporting and using natural products. There are so many reasons, some of which include:
- Health & Well-being
- Sustainability & Environmental Protection
- Supporting Ethical Businesses
- Working Conditions
Health & Well-Being: Many commonly used brands of body care products include hundreds of chemicals and parabens which can lead to various health implications such as cancer. Whereas natural body care products have many health benefits and do not pose the same risks.
Sustainability & Environmental Protection:
Organic ingredients are those grown without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, which is healthier for the planet and healthier for our bodies. Better yet are botanicals grown using biodynamic farming methods, which go beyond organic by emphasizing an even more holistic relationship between the soil, plants, and animals. The USDA National Organic Program has been certifying personal-care products since 2003, and an increasing number of organic skincare products now bear the USDA organic seal.
