Most beauty products are made up of mixtures of synthetically produced chemicals. Some of these chemicals can penetrate your skin, the largest organ in your body, and some can even enter the blood stream.
There have been many media reports of health scares due to certain cosmetic ingredients in recent years, which have led more and more people to choosing organic products. For instance, infertility is rising in women under 25, cancer, autism and birth defect rates are growing rapidly and even unborn babies have been found to carry thousands of chemicals.
Those who suffer from certain conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or even asthma, may find that their conditions are exasperated when using products that contain certain chemicals. Some already eat organic food and as such, choose to use organic beauty products. For all of these reasons and more, the use of organic products is on the rise.
