Organic Cosmetics: The New Cosmetic Revolution
Most women might feel very incomplete without their kits of make-ups and cosmetics. Many of them might not even come out of the house without applying some powder and creams to their faces and bodies. True, cosmetics are used and worn by many people for enhancement and beautification. As a matter of fact, the usage of make-ups has been long recorded in history–with Egyptians being the first users around 3000 BC ago. Back then, make-ups were just simple coloring in the eyes derived from various plants and substances. In the present times, it is still the same, just that, more materials are now used and the applying became more sophisticated. Of course, not only do cosmetics generally beautify a person’s body, they also help in recovering scars and small skin distortions. Even after all these, cosmetics also build confidence in a person’s life. With the ongoing demands of cosmetics for professional, personal and protection purposes, synthetic and natural products have been manufactured. The question of which of the two is more effective and reliable is still highly debatable. Organic Cosmetics, however, are still more preferred to use by many men and women alike.
What are Organic Cosmetics?
Organic Cosmetics are just simply cosmetics that are solely made from plant or natural materials, or compounds that include minerals. This type of cosmetics is that which is not exposed or involved with the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. These products, however, still contain toxins and carcinogens that are found in the plants per se. They are very dangerous for the skin just like the chemical-produced cosmetics. Some minerals also include a high level of toxins which may harm the body when applied. Therefore, it is much recommended to check organic cosmetics if they contain such substances by verifying at the list of ingredients used. Organic Cosmetics can effectively work when one is certain that there is little to no traces of Carcinogens and toxins.
Why choose Organic Cosmetics over Synthetic ones?
Choosing Organic Cosmetics over Synthetic ones is still highly recommended simply because organic products are entirely natural. Since they are natural, we can always assure ourselves that no synthetic or artificial chemicals and materials are employed in producing the cosmetics. With this nature, Organic Cosmetics do not pose any destruction to the skin and body. In fact, they are even more effective since they are naturally and safely involved in the skins’ abilities to display fair whiteness and youthful look by influencing its normal rejuvenating process.
Some people say that synthetic products are far more effective, however, they are more dangerous than the natural ones and this is a proven fact. Artificial cosmetics make use of chemicals and laboratory experimentations which are not safe most of the time. Such cosmetics may give a desirable look for a span of time, however, perilous side effects may take place soon enough. Organic cosmetics are imperatively more safe and beneficial to the person’s skin and health than artificial ones.
Cosmetics is important for all people and industries, however, the type of cosmetics used will still play a vital role in a person’s life. It is then very recommended to choose Organic Cosmetics which will ensure a lasting, securing and reliable beautification.
