Is it just me or does there seem to be a growing emphasis on using organic skincare products? Do we really need these products, or is this a just ploy by cosmetic companies to get us to give them more money? Well, since clean skin is the foundation of a good complexion, I decided to answer these questions by looking into organic face wash. Allow me to tell you what I learned through my investigation.
You see, the scientists who are developing organic skin care say a healthy, beautiful complexion can be achieved by supporting the underlying cell structure. When skin cells are kept functioning at healthy levels, they manufacture lots of structural proteins and fatty acids which keep the skin firm, smooth, moist and even-toned.
This healthy approach to skincare also pertains to an organic face wash. Instead of using harsh, chemical-based cleansers which strip out natural oils from the skin and deposit irritating chemicals on the skin, safe, organic substances like, Kaolin and bentone gel, gently pull dirt and grime from the face, with a mild disinfecting and drying effect. Your face is gently cleansed, blemishes are healed and new blemishes are prevented from forming.
But the benefits of an organic face wash don’t end there. In order to promote the health of the underlying cellular structure, scientists have added plant-based oils and emollients, enzymes, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, which nourish and stimulate healthy cell function. Substances like macadamia nut oil, shea butter, natural vitamin E and functional keratin give your cells the stimulating support they need to keep their production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid running in high gear.
You’ll never get this kind of skin-supporting cleansing from a chemical-based face wash. The artificial ingredients used in these products have nothing in common with your “organic” skin. As such, They can’t penetrate the skin, or deliver cell-supporting nutrients. Oh, your skin will be clean, but will also be overly-dry and left exposed to the irritating chemicals left behind. This can be especially troublesome if you have sensitive skin.
Now, when it comes to organic products being used as a ploy to make more money, all you have to do is read the ingredients label on a product. If it contains only one or two natural extracts in trace amounts, mixed in with the usual line up petrolatum, mineral oil, isopropyl myristate, trietholamine, glycerin, propylene glycol, alcohols and fragrances, you will immediately know this has nothing to do with true organic skin care.
However, if the label lists HIGH CONCENTRATIONS of natural extracts, like the ones listed above, you will know you have a product which will nourish and support your body’s ability to keep your skin looking healthy, young and beautiful.
Make no mistake about it. Science has proven we need organic skincare to maintain the health and appearance of our skin. With clean skin being the starting point, it only makes sense to use an organic face wash which has been specifically designed to lay the foundation for a young, beautiful complexion.
