Are Organic Beauty Products worth it?

A] They are better for your skin!  What you put on your skin eventually ends up in your body. Certified organic products are made with ingredients that are grown free of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms. They also don’t include harmful additives such as petroleum waxes, fillers and artificial chemicals. Simply put, certified organic products are completely healthy and natural, synthetic alternatives are not.

B] They work better! Think of beauty products like food. In today’s world, there are a lot of synthetic, or “fake” ingredients used in food processing. But if you go to a high-end restaurant, you generally won’t find “fake” ingredients on the menu. Top chefs know that creating a top-quality meal requires top-quality ingredients. They don’t use artificial flavors in their cooking, because real spices and fresh herbs create a finer, more exquisite taste. Producing a beauty product is not much different. Certified organic beauty products work better simply because they are made with superior ingredients.

C] They are better for the environment! Therefore you reduce your carbon foot print 🙂  Organic farming eliminates the use of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers, all of which have a destructive effect on our water, soil and health. Organic plants are also grown without the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as they may pose a significant threat to both human and environmental health. Therefore, through looking out for your own health, you’re also helping to protect our fragile ecosystem. That is what they call a “win-win” situation.

Zoya

The average nail care products contain a hefty amount of serious toxins in their ingredients, and conventional nail polish is basically nothing more than a refined version of automobile paint. Sure these products make your nails look gorgeous, but they contain toxic chemicals (dibutyl pthalate, formaldehyde, toluene), that can stay in your system and generate internal toxicity. Not entirely free of chemicals (it’d be great to have an organic nail polish at some point!), at least using natural nail polish alternatives such as Zoya if you must have gorgeous, well-groomed nails, ensures that you’re not absorbing the worst offending ingredients. Not only are they the longest wearing natural nail lacquers, but they come in over 60 luscious, fashion forward colors.
