Why Organic Beauty Therapy

If you are considering clean living by improving your lifestyle, diet and choosing your food more carefully to reduce the amount of synthetic chemicals ingested via your mouth – what about your skin?
As the body’s largest organ, your skin has the ability to absorb cosmetics – some in tiny amounts and some can reach the blood vessels below the skin and can be transported around the body.
The reality is that cleansing, moisturising and deodorising rituals can mean a cocktail of hundreds of different synthetic chemicals being applied to the skin on a daily basis. We are absorbing a vast array of new synthetic chemicals in beauty products – most of which have not had long term full testing on humans. It’s the cumulative effect and layering of these toxins that causes greatest concern.
At the same time allergies and skin disorders and diseases such as eczema and cancers are increasing.
