5 Ways You Can Benefit from Natural Personal Care Products
Most people are well aware of environmental dangers such as secondhand smoke, lead, and pesticides. Until recently however, few were aware of the
dangers that common products pose or that there are alternatives. With the increased interest in all things green, natural and organic personal care
products are taking center stage. All products on the market are under greater scrutiny as consumers gain awareness of the benefits of using more
natural personal care products.
One of points often posed by the manufactures of chemically based products is that products labeled "natural" are not regulated to the same degree
as other products. However, they do not mention that chemically based skincare products and make up are not strictly regulated or tested.
Government regulations are surprisingly lenient regarding what ingredients are allowed to be used in the manufacture of products used for the hair and
skin, and do not have to meet the same FDA regulations as food and medications. Shockingly, many of the products consumers use daily contain
chemicals which are absorbed easily through the skin, yet difficult or impossible for the body to rid. Over time, many of the chemicals build up and
spread throughout the body.

â€¢ Our body absorbs everything we inhale, ingest or use on our skin. The ingredients used in chemically based products are difficult for the body to
expel. Using organic products avoids the effects of harmful chemicals.
â€¢ Consumers tend to think of chemically based products as a first or superior choice because of marketing. However, thousands of dollars have
been spent trying to duplicate what already occurs in nature. That cost is reflected in the cost of your purchase. By usi
