Why I Use Organic Beauty & Skincare Products

Growing up in 80s and 90s in Poland, I didn’t have many chemicals or toxins around me. Nowadays, sadly, they are everywhere around us. Having Earth Day this past Monday, I’ve had this idea to write why it is better to choose organic skincare and beauty products over non-organic ones.

Organic Skincare Is Better For Your Skin And Your Health

Whatever you put on your skin, eventually ends up in your body. You often hear: “listen to your body”, but do we really do this?

The human body understands ingredients that comes from the earth (natural resources). However, once you use something man-made, like synthetics or chemicals, your body reacts. As a result, the sensitivities and irritations begin.

Better For Environment

Organic farming practices are more environmentally friendly. Eliminating the use of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers protects our fragile ecosystem. Chemicals and fertilizers have a very destructive effect on our water, soil and health.

When you choose to use organic skincare, at the same time, you make a conscious decision to support the health of our planet. It’s a “win-win” situation.

When I’m at the grocery store, I always reach for organic fruits and vegetables and other products that are mostly in eco friendly flexible packaging. It’s important for me to “feed” my skin and my body with the good stuff. Let’s be clear, it doesn’t happen always, but I always try.

Complements Healthy Lifestyle

I didn’t make any resolutions for 2019, but some new, healthy habits. One of them was that I’ve started integrating more and more organic products into my daily living. It has started with food way before this year, but now extended to household and beauty products. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in an overall health and how my skin looks like. V is impressed every time he looks at my face, noticing how it got more youthful.

As far as I am concerned, what you put in your body is as important as what you put on your body. I always love choosing the simple way, the most organic way and healthy equals happy :).

That’s why, I’ve also come up with the series of posts about clean beauty products, because I find that they are not that hugely promoted as other major brands.

Beauty and health inside and out! πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you for this! I didn’t think I used many beauty and skincare products until I read your post and then started mentally listing the products I DO use. I have been striving to make more environmentally-friendly choices in my life but had overlooked this particular area. It is now on my radar πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

  2. I have a few relatives who use Clinique but because of having very sensitive skin. Going organic is a great idea as long as it suits for the person concerned and of course, if it would also be easy on the pocket,considering inflation nowadays.

    1. I think it’s actually cheaper in a long run, because it’s way more effective πŸ™‚πŸŒΊ

      1. True,especially if you stick to just a few products that work for you instead of spending more money experimenting with all kinds of cosmetics,not knowing of any sure results from them.

  3. Buying organic is a worthy goal. For men’s health products, though, some natural brands are superior, others…not so much. As with everything else, be a good shopper!

    Now, food has a much less ambiguous record. Close to 100% of the fruits and veggies I buy are natural/organic. Chemicals have their place, certainly, but not inside us!

  4. It has worked for you Ula, you look much younger than you say you are. I think eating a healthy diet also plays a big part.

  5. You have to do what you think is right. You have the base that needs nothing, You are able to keep it that way by using the least chemicals to sustain your base. Keep doing what you feel is right.

    1. I’m glad that there are more and more available, it’s getting better πŸ™‚πŸŒΊ.

  6. For three months and counting, I’ve been making my own facial cleanser, using apple cider vinegar and jojoba oil as toner and moisturizer, respectively. This is to avoid the need to have single-use plastic every time I buy drug-store skincare products and I must say that my skin loves natural ingredients better! Thanks for sharing this, it inspires me to share mine soon.

  7. Great post! You are so right about organic products. I made the switch to eating organic foods and using natural skin care products 6 weeks ago and it really does make a difference.

  8. I love this post. I have been using vegan, clean products for a while now and think that everyone needs to see how bad the ingredients are in products nowadays. Thanks for sharing!

  9. It’s funny how a lot of people are conscious about buying organic food, but when it comes to skin care we are not.
    I am defenitly a fan of natural ingrediens in beauty and skincare products, but if something non-organic shows up that I LOVE, I will still use it nontheless.
    Great post and great arguments ☺️

  10. That’s a great decision. When we utilize what nature has to offer, the results are delightful and permanent, not only for ourselves but for the nature as well.

  11. Great post! this is why I have started my own all natural organic skin care company to help those who can not make their own.
