What comes to your mind when you hear “organic makeup”? Let us guess the first 3 things you think about… 1. Natural 2. Healthy 3. Safe! Are we right, or are we right? If we can just lay it all down and simple, we’ll merely just tell you, you should switch to organic makeup because they are flat-out good for you. There’s really no going around it that much.
Not convinced yet? Here are 3 main reasons why you should make the switch and invest in organic makeup.
They are double-purpose!
More than providing you with color and coverage, organic makeup also helps you heal and restore your skin’s best condition. Organic makeups are usually made of natural ingredients such as fruit, herb, vegetables, and plant extracts. Unlike mainstream makeup, they do not contain harsh chemicals, and toxic ingredients. They have shorter shelf life but that’s because they are not infused with too much preservatives and chemicals.
Cosmetics are not well regulated all over the world!
Come to think of it, there is really no governing body that takes care of strictly regulates cosmetics. While technically, cosmetics are under FDA approvals, it still does not cover each and every cosmetic products widely and precisely. Today, it is only Europe who implements a stricter set of regulations on cosmetic products. Even in America, cosmetic companies are allowed to use almost any chemical without government approval- just like here in Manila. While the rise of many homegrown cosmetic brands here in Philippines can be seen as something good for the economy, it is still better to lean on to products that contain safer ingredients.
Mainstream Cosmetic Products usually contain dangerous ingredients
If you are using mainstream cosmetics and do not believe this statement that we just shared, it could be because you are not aware of the harmful ingredients you should be avoiding in your cosmetic products. These dangerous chemical ingredients are usually found in products like lipsticks, foundations and other cosmetic products too like nail polishes, and creams.
Formaldehyde, Lead, Parabens, Nitrosamines, Phthalates are just some of the most dangerous ingredients you could find in your cosmetic products. These ingredients are contributing factors to increasing chances of getting cancer. They are also found to disrupt hormones; decrease sperm count and contributes to hazarding the environment too!
