Even if you don’t break out in a full body rash, the chemicals used to make conventional soap will most surely dry your skin. Unfortunately, many people wait until itchy, dry skin is a problem before making the switch to natural soap. Many people also use additional products to replenish and moisturize the skin after using conventional soap.
What most people don’t know is that soap you buy in stores is made with animal fat and chemicals. These chemicals strip your skin of its natural oils. That’s why many times you take a shower, you do not actually moisturize and your skin feels tight or dry.

Taking care of your skin is essential, after all it is the body’s largest living organ. However, many of the personal care products on the market contain toxins and chemicals that suffocate the skin. This is why Quincessentials has developed a range of natural and organic skincare products you can use for anti-ageing and to keep your skin looking smooth, supple and radiant.
Why should I choose organic skincare products?
Many mainstream products contain chemicals that are easily absorbed into the skin and can enter the blood stream. Many of the ingredients in these products also inhibit the skin’s ability to breathe and can be linked to conditions such as allergies and headaches.

There’s no question that a natural and organic approach makes sense when it comes to choosing your food. The same can be said for other products you put on your body. Specifically, skin care. Think about all of the products you may use on a daily basis that may come in contact with your skin.
As the largest organ of the body, your skin not only absorbs lots of nutrients, but it can also take in a number of toxins each day. Up to 60% of what we put on our skin ends up being absorbed in the body and when the products we use are made from harmful artificial ingredients these place an unnecessary chemical load on the body’s detoxification processes and on the entire immune system, including the skin. Some chemicals remain stored in the body for several months or even years before they are completely eliminated.
