We stock brands that create ethical, organic, vegan and zero waste beauty products that we can feel good about using.
There are many benefits of going organic with your skincare including;
Certified organic ingredients in beauty products are derived from plants and other naturally occurring ingredients. More importantly, those organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides or any synthetic fertilizers, so they don't leave a harmful footprint on the planet or your skin!
Often (as there are much less harmful chemicals) organic skin-care products are less likely to cause allergic reactions, inflammations or irritations. If an allergic reaction does occur with the use of organic products, it would most likely be due to a natural ingredient (such a shea butter or avocado), which should be easier to identify.
Better for your skin
Using natural, organic skin care products ensure that you get the real nutritional benefits from its ingredients rather than chemical ingredients. Natural organic ingredients such as coconut oil, aloe vera, and shea butter, for example, are known to soothe, nourish, moisturize and promote smooth skin. Even though the results may be slower, organic skin care products are gentle on your skin and are certainly better long term!
