Why is skin so important?
Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It provides support to your immune system by protecting your body from germs, bacteria and viruses. Skin also blocks rays that cause pigmentation, sunburns, and can lead to cancer. Skin is vulnerable to environmental factors and natural aging. Your skin creates your appearance to the world, and it is important to keep it healthy to heal quicker, avoid skin issues, disease and infection and slow the signs on aging.
Why natural and organic skin care?
According to the Environmental Working Group, nearly 90 percent of skin care ingredients have not been evaluated for safety by the Federal Drug Administration. There are 10 personal product ingredients banned in the United States, while the number exceeds one thousand in the European Union. The reason for these bans includes research correlations of these ingredients causing birth defects, reproductive toxicity and cancer.
Just like a nicotine or hormone patch, what we place on our skin absorbs into our bloodstream. Following a natural and organic skin care routine is necessary to avoid harmful chemicals and possible carcinogens.
