" /> 10 Great Reasons To Go Organic - Ecowell

1. Caring for Your Largest Organ
Your skin is your largest organ and acts as a barrier for other organs inside your body and protects organs from dirt and other foreign matter. Skin breathes and absorbs liquid and products we use on our skin. Hence, everything in our surrounding elements is absorbed into our skin and into our organs and bloodstream.

2. Cancer-causing Chemical Elements
Organic products do not contain petrochemicals i.e mineral oils, sodium laurel sulfate, propylene glycol etc. which are potentially toxic. Petrochemicals are mistaken by the body as oestrogens and hence cause menopausal symptoms and cancers. Oestrogen overload from xenooestrogens is one of the main causes.

3. Daily Dose of Harmful Chemicals in Daily Products
Women use an average of over 200 chemicals on their skin every day contained in shampoos, conditioners, anti-perspirants, skin care products, and makeup. Over 60% of these chemicals are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. Most of these are known to be carcinogenic, neurotoxic and hormone disruptors.


4. Natural absorption and Integration
Organic products contain natural ingredients which are in fact similar to those produced by our own body which keep us healthy and supple. Skin reacts positively to the high absorption rate of natural ingredients and combines with its natural properties to keep skin younger.


5. Active Nourishing Ingredients
Organic products are more ‘active’ containing up to 99% active ingredients (excluding water). Most everyday personal and skin care products contain only 5% of active ingredients which are rarely extracted in the proper way to effectively glean their natural benefits.

6. Feel and Look Healthier
Natural, organic products contain antioxidants, amino acids, botanical extracts, pure essential oils, fatty acids, clays, floral extracts and more which are highly compatible with the human body and enrich skin from the outside in.

7. Animal-Friendly
Animal testing is neither done nor necessary as natural, organic products are compatible with skin.

8. Step Out of the Toxic Cycle
Many skincare products are toxic to the environment as well as to you. The cycle of toxic by-products from those products flows into drains, the sea, farms, and water supplies; ultimately, bringing it back into our bodies.



9. Save Your Skin and The Environment
Organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilisers. Not only is this great for your skin, but great for encouraging eco bio-friendly sustainable farming practices.



10. Younger…Naturally
Enjoy younger skin by becoming healthier as you reduce the absorption of harmful toxins and lessen the risk of rashes, eczema, asthma, cancer and more as you feed your skin with natural nutrients from organic sources.
