Choosing organic skincare products requires effort but is definitely worth it. You must remember that all products labelled natural may not be organic so you must keep an eye for products which are organic as well. Many brands have played with the term natural. They may advertise it as natural but you will be surprised to know that they are not organic, after checking out the ingredients.
Shubhika Jain, Founder of RAS Luxury Oils, has listed why you should go for organic skincare and ditch the ones infused with chemicals.
Your Skin Absorbs What You Put On It
Our skin absorbs 60% of what is applied to it and hence the chemicals in products that it comes in contact with, goes directly into the bloodstream. What we apply to our skin, should be good enough to put inside our body, as even in tiny amounts these chemicals can have a huge impact on our health and hormonal balance.
Also, remember we accidently ingest products through our mouth or inhale through our nose such as lipsticks, powders and sprays. Hence sticking to organic products will reduce your toxic chemical load.
The Planet Is Being Polluted

Not only is skin care affecting us, it is also affecting the planet. Sulphates, SLS, SLES, phtalates in personal care products make their way into the water, affecting the reproductive health of the fish population. These chemicals are washed down our sinks, which are then streamed to our lakes, rivers, and the water systems.
Chemicals Aren’t Regulated In Skincare

The beauty and skincare industry is highly unregulated, with claims, labels and ingredients lists being very deceptive. Brands also do not share their entire ingredient list and share only the key ingredients and manage to hide several harmful chemicals and preservatives. Companies do not have to test for safety, and only around hundred ingredients have been banned in India for safety concerns while the EU has banned over a thousand.
Natural Products Work Better
If a product is organic it will be natural, and research tells us that our body is better adaptable and able to metabolize substances that are natural. They contain everything that is effective and they deeply nourish and work in a sustainable fashion where in you might not see the result in 3 days but in the long term, the effect of the product will be positive.
Effects On Your Health
The harmful chemicals can have a long term negative effect on overall health of your body not only your skin. Hence making a conscious choice to exclude them and making a healthy choice of using organic products for overall well-being.
