California Pure Naturals skincare and hair products are made with at least 70% organic ingredients sourced from right here in sunny California, but why does that matter? Is organic really that much better, or is it just a bunch of hype? Here are some reasons why choosing organic products is better for you and the environment.
A lot of skincare products on the market today cut corners with synthetic or man-made chemicals such as sulfates, phthalates, parabens and others, which have been shown to be damaging to skin and hair or even toxic. Even when these products do feature natural ingredients, those may be grown using harmful pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers that may leave a residue in the ingredient itself. That means it can be applied on your hair or skin and may lead to irritation or other harmful effects.
Less Chance of Allergies
Because they use only natural ingredients that aren’t grown with harsh chemicals, organic products are less likely to cause allergic reactions. This can be a game changer for those with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema.
More Potent Actives
Plant-based ingredients grown under organic conditions and not diluted by other harmful chemicals have a higher concentration of beneficial components like antioxidants, helpful acids, and soothing lipid complexes. Think of it like nutrition for your skin. The less artificial chemicals are involved, the more concentrated the healthy active ingredients can be.
These products weren’t grown by spraying pesticides that kill insects and other foundational species for local ecosystems. These pesticides can build up in the digestive systems of larger animals and have a profoundly negative impact on the environment. Organic products are not only better for your skin, they’re better for the ecosystems in which the ingredients are grown.
What’s the downside?
There’s a reason many companies use synthetic ingredients and chemically grown plants for their products. These chemicals often mean that the products are “faster acting” and may achieve a more immediate result in appearance, but over time, they are often less effective and even harmful.
The use of chemicals also makes those products cheaper to produce, maximizing the company’s profits. However, we at California Pure Naturals believe that the surest way to achieve great profits is through great products that keep our customers coming back again and again. That’s why we guarantee that every one of our products is at least 70% organic and, wherever possible, we utilize local, renewable resources. And, of course, we never include harmful chemicals like parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial dyes, or artificial fragrances.
