WHAT IS ECO MAKEUP?
- Products containing high-quality ingredients free from toxins and chemicals.
- Eco makeup is sustainably sourced.
- Not tested on animals.
- Our skin is the largest organ of our body, absorbing 60% of what is applied to its surface.
1. ECO MAKEUP
While choosing to wear makeup may help enhance one’s personal appearance and self-esteem, it also exposes the wearer to a range of health concerns. products use petroleum-based ingredients. These compounds are typically harsh substances, like petroleum, aluminum, and lead, all of which require extensive mining. Much of this is done in some of the world’s most beautiful and sensitive areas, like the Amazon rainforest, and miles of land are destroyed and stripped of vital wildlife every year.
2. HARSH CHEMICALS
chemicals in conventional makeup are often very harsh on skin and may promote irritation or allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Parabens and phthalates are two common examples of substances that are used extensively in cosmetics. Both of these compounds have been linked to cancer and type II diabetes, the Environmental Protection Agency warns against their exposure.
3. NATURAL FRAGRANCE
Man-made aromas expose the body to a number of toxic effects, and some research has linked them to cancer, nervous system disorders, allergies, and birth defects. Not only do humans inhale these chemicals into their lungs, they also expose their skin to these toxic compounds. When choosing beauty products, always make sure that the scents are derived from 100% natural ingredients. Essential oils are perhaps one of the best natural perfumes in the world and the most concentrated in terms of aroma.
4. NUTRIENT RICH
Your skin has the ability to absorb certain compounds; however, a protective barrier is able to keep dangerous compounds, to some degree, out of the body. Even then, research still concludes that personal care products, when applied topically, can damage bodily systems and lead to untold health consequences. One of the key rules for makeup, and any beauty product is basic and straightforward: if you can’t eat it, don’t wear it.
5. PROTECTION FROM PREMATURE AGING
Makeup made with natural minerals generally provides a certain level of sun protection. The skin on the face is thinner and more susceptible to UV-related skin aging, so choosing a mineral-rich organic cosmetic product may help support healthy, youthful-looking skin. Three common organic mineral ingredients are:
Titanium oxide: Provides SPF 15 protection against the sun’s harmful effects.
Zinc oxide: Protects against both UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) types of light.
Iron oxide: Also provides ultraviolet light protection.
Many herbal extracts also provide antioxidant protection, and vitamin C has been demonstrated to provide sun-shielding benefits. Choose makeup that contains these ingredients if at all possible, especially during the summer when the sun is at its strongest.
6. GENTLE ON SKIN
My sixth reason for being an advocate of organic cosmetics is that they’re gentler on the skin. Of course, this statement is really just a summary of the other five reasons you should choose organic cosmetics.
THE BOTTOM LINE
It’s obvious to me that true beauty comes from glowing health, with cosmetics simply being an adjunct. When it comes to your food and your makeup, always choose organic. This way, you can be sure you are doing yourself, and the planet, a great deal of good. To promote a beautiful, radiant glow, it’s important that you consume a diet rich in raw vegetation, drink plenty of water and to get plenty of physical activity every day. Also, by getting enough sleep, managing stress, and practicing positive thinking you can transform your personal attitude to that of serenity. Beauty comes from within, and it starts with you!
