Natural cosmetics naturally stimulate the self-regulation of our skin - and also give us a few more reasons why we should use them:
Natural cosmetics and the environment
Over and over again, we hear about the effects of microplastics on the environment. Unfortunately, this can also be found in many conventional cosmetic products such as peelings, shower gels or creams. As soon as you take a shower or clean your face in the evening, microplastic enters the wastewater system.
Once in the wastewater, microplastics are difficult to filter out, which is why they can end up in our natural waters and thus in the environment. In natural cosmetics, the use of microplastics is prohibited. Thus, you not only protect the environment, but also your health.
Natural cosmetics and your health
For your body care, you may use a wide variety of cosmetic products every day. These are often mixed with mineral oils or parabens. These substances are suspected of being harmful to health. Natural cosmetics do not contain these additives.
Natural cosmetics and care effect
With conventional shampoos and shower gels, you create wonderful foam that makes you feel really clean. However, this foam has a decisive disadvantage for your skin. The substances that create the foam are also the ones that dry out your skin and wash away your natural oil layer. In the long term, this can possibly lead to skin irritation and negatively affect your skin. Since these substances are not used in natural cosmetics, you will not experience a comparable foaming effect. However, this does not matter for the cleansing effect.
Manufacturers of natural cosmetics products usually pay attention to fair partnerships.
The manufacturers of certified natural cosmetics products not only protect your health and the environment. They often obtain their raw materials from agricultural cooperations in developing countries or have set up their own raw material projects. In this way, they want to create the basis for ecological production, fair wages and good working conditions and exert a sustainable influence.
Natural cosmetics contain no parabens
In 2014, according to a study by the environmental protection organization BUND, every fourth cosmetic product contained parabens These can have undesirable hormone-like effects on your body. Despite legal limits, you are exposing yourself to additional hormonal stress every day by using products containing parabens. If you switch to natural cosmetics, this burden is eliminated.
