Your skin serves as a protective barrier, and it’s also the largest organ in the body. But that doesn’t mean that your skin is impenetrable. Using products on your skin that contain toxins and chemicals will enable them to be absorbed into your bloodstream and into your organs, even if you don’t feel anything.

We are surrounded by dozens of potential irritants that get into our skin on a daily basis. From deodorant, shampoos, soap, fragrances, and other personal hygiene products; there are many toxins lurking in the form of fancy-sounding chemicals that have been linked to health problems.

Here’s why you should use all natural products for your body:

  • Prevent irritation: Personal hygiene products contain artificial colors, fillers, and chemicals that cause irritation and breakouts. You might not know it, but you could be allergic to the toxins found in many conventional body products. On the other hand, natural products use only ingredients that are derived from nature; making them a much safer alternative.

  • No side effects: Artificial ingredients such as parabens are used in most conventional body care products with the intention of preserving its shelf life – no benefits for you. Parabens are synthetic and have been linked to disrupted hormone and endocrine function, causing several side effects.

  • Environment-friendly: Conventionally-made body care products harm the environment. They contain chemicals and toxins that go down the drain each time you wash them off. Using natural ingredients are much more gentle on the earth, and on your body.

Making the switch to all natural products for your skin, body, and hair is the best way to ensure you’re protected from irritants and contaminants that can cause harm in the long run.
