Several scientific studies found that the skin absorbs up to 64% of what is applied topically. Since our skin is the largest organ, it makes sense to stop slathering harmful chemicals on your skin. Here’s our top 5 reasons to switch:1. A natural alternativeOnly a small percentage of chemicals used in skin care have safety data. There are also many chemicals still used in Australia that other countries have banned due to safety concerns. Ingredients such as parabens, triclosan, and phthalates all have research showing they are harmful to our health. Whilst choosing natural skin care products does not guarantee you won’t have a reaction, they are less harsh on your skin and are tolerated by most people.2. Kinder to your skinMost natural skincare products contain nourishing antioxidant ingredients that your skin loves rather than chemicals that can potentially cause free radicals that can further age your skin. In the long run, you’ll reap the benefits of using natural skin care.3. Value for moneyThere is a misconception that natural skincare is more expensive than mainstream brands. Sure, natural skin care products may not be dirt cheap, but it does contain much more nutrients than highly toxic beauty products. You get your value for money by supporting natural beauty products!4. Don’t risk harming your body and babyEvery day we are exposed to a vast array of toxins and chemicals that build up in our bodies and contribute to our toxic load. According to The Lancet Neurology study, toxins in cosmetics can cause birth defect, miscarriages and brain development in children. Of course, it’s impossible to know which percentage of these are related to toxic chemicals in personal care products, but why take any risk?5. Save the environmentSome chemicals can be a negative impact on our environment. During manufacture, majority of the chemicals will end up in the air and water and let’s not forget what we wash down the drain during our own personal use. These harmful ingredients will end up in the soil and waterways and can harm microorganisms and sea life. One obvious example of harmful ingredient for the environment is microbeads, which can easily be replaced by natural blueberry seeds as exfoliator.At Florette Skincare we are passionate about protecting the environment, thus all our packaging are recyclable and we use only natural and certified organic ingredients that doesn’t harm the environment or your health.
