By favouring these ingredients rather than the chemical active ingredients of conventional cosmetics, organic and natural cosmetics minimizes their impact on the planet < / b>, in terms of sourcing of ingredients, harvesting, production or packaging method.

In addition, these assets are respectful of our health because they replace any harmful ingredient for our body such as parabens, silicones, sulphates, dyes, and fragrances of synthesis, derived from petrochemicals.

Need 5 arguments to let go of your conventional favourites?

Most conventional cosmetic products are made from synthetic ingredients derived from petrochemicals or from animal sources and contain very few natural raw materials. Instead, they are predominantly made of agents that are harmful to the skin and the environment.

1️⃣ Your favourite mascara is surely composed of mineral oils , which you can recognize on the labels by these pretty names: POLYISOBUTILENE OZOKERITE, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM … They are petroleum derivatives , also present in face and body creams, foundations, sunscreens… What they will do is deposit an occlusive film on the skin which will prevent its dehydration. On top of that, they are comedogenic oils. These petroleum derivatives are responsible for skin irritation and allergies, they and may contain potentially carcinogenic polyaromatic hydrocarbons . Best of all, they are non-biodegradable : therefore, very polluting.

2️⃣ Maybe there are also some emulsifiers ? Recognizable by these names: POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG), POLYPROPYLENE GLYCOL (PPG), PEG-6, PEG-100, STEARATE, DISTEARATE … Mainly used as an emulsifying or humectant agent, they provide consistency and smoothness to creams. They are found in liquid soaps, moisturizers, shampoos, hand sanitizers ... They make the skin permeable allowing greater absorption of the product, including the impurities present in the PEG compounds (ethylene oxide, 1, 4-dioxane, polycyclic aromatic compounds and heavy metals: lead, iron, nickel, cadmium, arsenic) . For this reason, they are suspected of being carcinogenic.

3️⃣ Silicones , such as AMODIMETHICONE, OLYSILOXANE, DIMETHICONE … They are widespread and are found in almost all cosmetics. These petroleum derivatives arise on the surface of the skin and hair and give them a smooth appearance. However, they are believed to have a semi-occlusive effect on the skin, preventing it from breathing. The "real" care can then no longer penetrate. These molecules take many years to disintegrate in nature and disrupt ecosystems.

4️⃣ Preservatives and antioxidants , such as parabens . These preservatives are used in many products. They penetrate the skin and are suspected of being allergens. Considered endocrine disruptors, they can cause allergies, cases of infertility, and even trigger cancer.

5️⃣ And finally, the sweet synthetic smell from perfumes is usually a complex mixture of dozens of chemicals . Many can be irritating and in some people trigger allergies , migraines, and symptoms of asthma . People with environmental illnesses and multiple chemical sensitivities are particularly vulnerable.
