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.
Healthy Skin Care
Many traditional industrialized skin care products contain endocrine-disrupting phthalates or parabens. While these poisons can cause reproductive issues, they’re also linked to increased cancer risk, and studies also suggest the more products you use, the higher toxic concentrations can get in your body. Since your skin acts as your body’s barrier against those toxins, it’s so important to be aware of just what you’re using! If you’re putting dangerous ingredients on your skin, you can be sure those are getting into your body, exactly where they don’t belong.
Many of us can use up to 10 skin care products each day, that could be 10 products full of toxic chemicals! Going natural and organic with your skin care routine will help your skin and body steer clear of those toxins and there are many other benefits as well. A recent study suggests using natural ingredients for skin care can help treat hyper-pigmentation and inflammation, while another shows it can help with reducing skin damage caused by the sun and other environmental aggressors which we daily face. Natural skin care is one of the best choices you can make for your health.
Harmful ingredients in cosmetics are not just a personal health issue. Each and every product we use on our skin will eventually end up in soil and waterways, where it can further negatively impact microorganisms and aquatic life. All the more reason for us to come up with better solutions which are effective and healthy for ourselves and the world around us.
The most active, pure, effective and beneficial cosmetic ingredients have undergone minimal processing and come from organic or bio-dynamic plants. Quincessentials exclusively formulates its products with such natural and organic ingredients and will never use parabens, synthetic fragrances, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, GMOs, non-organically grown plants, or any toxic chemical of any kind.
