5 Reason to Switch to Clean Beauty Aisling Organic Cosmetics
The top 5 reasons to make the switch to clean beauty:
Benefits from plant-based ingredients to your body
Using plant-based ingredients in cosmetics or skin care is wise. Plants are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, which have great benefits for the skin. Additionally, by using naturally occurring ingredients on your skin, your body will know intrinsically how to process them.
Uncertainty of ingredients used in cosmetics and skincare
Since 1938, no major law has passed to regulate the thousands of products that have been used daily from the consumers. This law stated that the brands’ labels had to be honestly labeled, but the rest of the law contains loopholes for any brand currently on the market. The FDA does not require companies to provide safety data on their products, they don’t test on the safety on personal care products before they are marketed, nor can the FDA force a brand to recall products if unsafe ingredients were used.
Fragrance brands are protected by law
Everyone loves a great scent, but when was the last time anyone asked what was in their favorite perfume? The fragrance industry is by law protected due to trade secret laws, therefore ingredients are not listed on labels. The law is set up to protect the fragrance companies from having to tell you what ingredients they are using. This is unsettling, and more questioning and scrutiny will hopefully lead to change in the industry, but for now this industry will remain largely unknown.
Free of animal testing
What does your morning routine look like? After waking up, you brush your teeth, shower, and go into your skincare regimen of lotions, perfumes, and cosmetics. Out of the twelve products I used during my daily routine, only three are not tested on animals. Two of these products are cosmetics, which I purchased because they were cruelty-free. Natural products are never tested on animals, there is no need to. Eliminating the brand’s dependency of lab-generated ingredients eliminates the need for animal testing. The ingredients utilized are the safest, and their exact origins are known. In your daily routine, how many of your products are cruelty-free?
It takes less than 30 seconds for your skin to absorb any ingredients
Our skin is the largest organ on our body that contains three layers. That being said, it takes less than 30 seconds for any ingredient to be absorbed by our skin and make its way through the three layers into the bloodstream. The skin is an amazing organ, and is equipped with enzymes meant to attack unknown chemicals. Every chemical or ingredient has its purpose within the skincare or cosmetics, so, they all act differently once they are absorbed. Some of these ingredients are made toxic by the exact enzymes equipped to attack unknown chemicals.
Clean beauty is not a myth. After all, centuries before we existed, generations upon generations marveled at natural elements to maintain their beauty. Beauty trends have come, and gone, but the concept is still the same. Age should not be feared, nor looked upon like a curse. Age represents wisdom, and honor. At what point did we become dependent on our youth for happiness, or beauty? Wear that wrinkle with pride because you have lived.
