Do you suffer from any of the following skin conditions?

organic skin care product

  • acne
  • dry skin
  • psoriasis
  • dermatitis
  • itchy skin rash
  • aging skin
  • eczema
  • a skin allergy to synthetic chemicals

Ever thought that what you are using on your skin is part of the problem? Even worse, some of the conditions above can be caused by harmful synthetic chemicals in everyday skin care. Many of these have not been tested for your safety.

Using anti aging skin care, dry skin care creams and lotions may stop or suppress the symptoms. However, without addressing the underlying root causes of a particular skin problem such as poor diet, low levels of an essential nutrient, genetic vulnerability to allergens, lack of exercise, exposure to harmful synthetic chemicals and more, then you will only really be "managing" the problem rather than looking to "prevent" it.

Avoiding harmful toxins is one way to ensure healthy skin. You may very well see immediate improvements as prevention is the key. My husband became psoriasis free from switching to a mostly organic diet, taking a daily probiotic and using certified organic skin care products.

WARNING: It is said a woman getting herself ready for the day with regular products such as anti-perspirants, moisturiser, shampoo, and cosmetics has exposed herself to hundreds of synthetic chemicals. All from a few moments in the bathroom!

Some examples of toxic ingredients used in everyday skin care products.

These are found in bubble bath, hair conditioner, hand and body wash, shampoo, toothpaste, moisturiser, many cosmetic and personal care products, hand and body lotion, and skin care.

They are NOT found in a certified organic skin care product.

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
Potential effects - skin, eye and mucous irritation; dry skin; eczema; mouth ulcers; liver and gastrointestinal toxicity
  • Methyl Paraben (Preservative)
Potential effects - may cause allergic skin reactions; contact dermatitis; possible increase in the risk of breast cancer; irritation to eyes; skin and respiratory tract
  • Triethanolamine (TEA)
Potential effects - skin allergies; contact dermatitis; skin irritation; may react with nitrites to form nitrosamines which are carcinogenic and corrosive to the eyes
  • Propylene Glycol (PG)
Potential effects - contact dermatitis; lactic acidosis; skin rashes; dry skin; respiratory; immuno and neurotoxicity; delayed contact allergy

Just take a look at the back of your moisturiser and personal care items and see if you can find some of these chemical names. It can seem shocking and unbelievable, and I hear you ask "Surely they have been tested for safety?". Many have not.

I'll be honest and tell you I studied chemistry at college and some of the names on the back of skin care products I cannot recognise myself, let alone pronounce or know remotely what their chemical properties are.

So in search of making things simple for myself I have discovered a pocket size book called "The Chemical Maze - Shopping Companion", written by Bill Statham. It's a small and easy to follow guide to food additives and cosmetic ingredients.

Natural vs Organic vs Certified Organic

There is a large difference between natural, organic and certified organic skin care products. Unfortunately a "natural" product means very little these days. An "organic" product may be a combination of organic and non-organic ingredients. It is easy to call a product natural or even organic and then add synthetic ingredients. Whereas a "Certified Oorganic Skin Care Product" is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 95% of certified ingredients and no harmful synthetic chemicals.

These will contain high concentrations of certified organic essential oils, herbs, flower extracts, vitamins and minerals. These beautiful ingredients will feed your skin with essential nutrients. The perfect diet for healthy skin!

They will NOT contain toxic petrochemicals, propylene glycol, parabens, SLS, synthetic dyes or perfumes, fragrances, mineral oils, paraffin, chemical coloring, artificial coloring, animal fats or genetically modified(GM) ingredients and they will NOT be tested on animals. TIP: Some people may be sensitive, or have slight allergic skin reactions to essential oils such as eucalyptus and citrus based oils. I suggest you purchase one certified organic product initially that is in the sensitive skin care range or one that is gentle and mild enough to use on babies. Try it on a small patch of your skin first. This way you can test for any reaction without breaking the budget.

So what IS the solution?

Read the labels, always look for the certification logos, get your magnifying glass out and become an ingredient detective! It's essential.
