What’s in your body lotion? How about your face wash? Or your hand soap? When it comes to skin care, the way that most of the products on the market are made is a mystery. It may come as a surprise, considering these products are meant to be used on skin, but the truth is the Federal Drug Administration doesn’t have to regulate what goes into personal care products. That means that companies can put whatever chemicals they want into the products you buy for your skin, and they can put a sticker on it that says “natural.” At Sweet Grass Farms, we care about what you use to care for your skin. That’s why we create all of our skincare products with natural, soothing ingredients. There are many benefits to investing in your skin, and making sure your products are truly natural. And in this blog, we will discuss them.
No Harsh Chemicals
Many of the “safe” ingredients in traditional skin care products aren’t actually good for you. Many of them are endocrine-disrupting phthalates or parabens, which can lead to cancer and reproductive problems. The more frequently we are exposed to these chemicals, the more they have the potential to concentrate in the body. Products that are truly natural, meaning that the ingredients are minimal and actually come from the earth, are a great way to make sure you are actually exposing your skin to ingredients that will soothe it.
Those chemicals that sneak into our traditional skin care products and makeup can cause redness, irritation, and even increase breakouts. Not to mention that many people are allergic to these chemicals. Products with ingredients that are truly natural work with your skin, rather than irritating it.
No Side Effects
The reason that chemicals are put into commercial skin care products isn’t with the intention of harming our skin. It’s to preserve the shelf life of those products. However, the fact that they are synthetic means that they mimic the body’s natural hormones. This means that it can mess with the function of your body’s endocrine system, which causes adverse effects. Natural ingredients don’t do anything to disrupt your body’s functioning and are much more understood than these mysterious synthetic chemicals.
Light Natural Fragrance
With natural ingredients, you get a light, refreshing fragrance naturally! Essential oils in natural body products lightly fragrance the product without any harsh chemicals. Once you begin to pay attention, the difference between a natural fragrance and a synthetic one is astounding, and you’ll never go back.
Beneficial To The Environment
Chemical-heavy skin care products put the same harmful chemicals we just discussed into the air and water during the manufacturing process. Not to mention when you use these products at home, the chemicals find their way down your drain. When you choose natural skin care products, like those from Sweet Grass Farms, no toxic chemicals are released into the air and in water from production to post-use.
The natural skin care products at Sweet Grass Farms are made with olive oil, shea butter, and essential oils so you can be sure your skin gets nothing but the best. Shop our collection of natural lotions, soaps, and scrubs today.
