Five Ingredients that are Molding Your Natural Beauty Experience

In case you haven’t noticed, organic beauty is becoming a thing. People are becoming more conscious of what’s in those pretty bottles on their shelf and where that product is going.

It used to be that finding anything organic was a little like looking for a needle in a haystack. Most likely, the only place you were going to find it was in the produce section of your local grocer, but now the market has expanded so much, you rarely walk into a shop anywhere without seeing something labeled organic. And we’re not just talking about food.

Merriam-Webster defines organic as, “of, relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides.”

When discussing skincare, this means that your products are manufactured and processed without the use of “nasty” ingredients like parabens and silicones. Which puts our minds at ease knowing that everything going into our skin is beneficial and authentic.

So, if there aren’t any of these “nasty” ingredients going into our skincare, what is going into those prized bottles on the bathroom shelf? Glad you asked!
