Do you think beauty should worth applying cancer-causing and hormone-disrupting toxic ingredients on your skin? The skin is the largest organ, and it deserves to be treated with respect. The ultimate standard for beauty should be clean and safe.
The natural skincare industry is one of the fastest-growing markets in the beauty industry (Hubbard, 2021). Natural skincare products are made from non-artificial substances such as essential oils, plants extracts, minerals, salts, sugars, and fruit acids, which nourish and treat the skin naturally (Koskinen, 2020). Natural products have significant advantages over harmful chemical products, including the avoidance of potentially harmful synthetic ingredients that may cause health issues and side effects (Hubbard, 2021). These products are an environmentally beneficial solution since they are high in antioxidants.
Correspondingly, chemical skincare products are made up of artificial and potentially harmful synthetic ingredients. While some of the chemicals improve the product's effectiveness, they also raise the chances of developing skin allergies, rashes, irritations, and side effects. Chemical-based skincare products have the disadvantage of being harsh on the skin and too abrasive for those who have sensitive skin. These products inevitably create skin problems such as breakouts because the chemicals in the product generate impurities in the skin.
Why are natural products preferable to chemical ones?
Natural products are gentler on the skin and are unlikely to induce allergic reactions. They are not harmful to the skin and, thanks to the antioxidants in the product, they aid to slow down the ageing process. Additionally, they are safe to use on children and people with sensitive skin. Ingredients in skincare products should not cause health problems or increase the risk of allergies and negative effects. Skincare products should be clean and safe.
