It’s hard to believe that many of the beauty and skincare products that line our shelves are filled with chemicals and ingredients we cannot even pronounce. Each day, you could be exposed to over 200 chemicals and some of which could be affecting your bodily functions.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and therefore absorbs everything like a sponge, meaning what we use to take care of our skin matters. As we become better educated on skincare, we are realising the importance of looking after our skin for the longevity of our lives and using skincare that will allow us to glow on the inside and out.
To give you a better idea of how to best look after your skin, here are three ingredients you’ll never find in Organic Island products and should be mindful of when you’re next browsing the beauty and skincare aisle!
Sulphates are one of the most common ingredients you’ll find in mostly any product in your home ranging from dish soaps, laundry detergents, shampoos and face cleansers. Technically speaking, the definition of a sulphate is a salt or ester of sulphuric acid. It’s responsible for the foaming agent and they’re often associated with cleansing because of this foaming lather. However what many people don’t know is that this chemical is aggressive and strips back essential oils but it’s low-priced and easy to acquire and manufacture, making it a key ingredient in thousands of products.
Chances are that most of your skincare and beauty items contain silicon. When you apply your moisturiser or your face cleanser, the soft texture and formula are results of the silicon components in the ingredients. After time though, the silicon can cause bacteria and dirt to build up on top of the skin, causing breakouts. To steer clear of this, carefully read the ingredients label and any names ending in ‘cone’ or ‘oxane’ or of course, you can be assured that all of the Organic Island products are sulphate free.
In recent years, the demand for products that are paraben-free has certainly increased. This is because the stipulation around this synthetic preservative has become better known. Parabens are used in skincare and cosmetics to not only extend the shelf life of the product, but also to prevent bacteria and fungi from growing. So why is it bad?
The chemical has been found to mimic hormones within the body, causing the endocrine system and it’s functions to be unsettled and disrupted.
So if you are weary about what sort of chemicals you are using on your skin, then stay clear of unknown ingredients and use natural and certified organic products like Organic Island for peace of mind.
So why should you choose Organic Island instead?
The simple answer is that Organic Island delivers results and is free from the harsh chemicals just mentioned and more. This range promises to transform the skin’s appearance for results you’ll be able to see and feel with breakthrough formulations.
