At PamBam Organics we are all about empowering our girls and having fun, but we are super serious when it comes to skin care. Our entire range has been designed with so much love and is full of nothing but natural and active ingredients. But what exactly are the benefits of natural skin care? Is it all just hype, or is there actually a method in the madness of buying all natural and organic? Well, listen up babes, because we are about to give you the rundown on everything you need to know about natural cosmetics.
You’re Basically Saving The Planet
Buying all natural cosmetics mean you can sleep easy and with a clear conscience. Why? Because natural beauty products are packed with plant-based ingredients that have been sourced from nature, so no nasty chemicals! Using products with unnatural ingredients mean sending harmful chemicals down our drains and into our waterways. These eventually end up back out in the world and can wind up damaging the environment and the animals that live there.
You might think that using a few products with chemicals wouldn’t have much impact, but consider just how many products you use on a daily basis. Even if we only consider the basics there’s your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, moisturiser, face wash and make-up just to name a few. Now imagine the entire population using that many products every single day, and then washing it off into the drain. This all adds up and makes an impact! So next time you purchase, consider the environment lovelies.
Your Skin Will Thank You
When it comes to putting things on your skin, going natural is a must. Most regular beauty products contain chemicals that are designed to make the product last longer, smell better and even look differently. These kinds of chemicals can cause skin irritation and often end up causing more problems than they solve. Cosmetics that only contain natural and organic supplies feed your skin pure and fresh ingredients the way nature intended. This is especially relevant to people with sensitive skin as the better-quality ingredients are less likely to worsen any conditions. Using plant-based ingredients means being gentle on your skin and using only the highest quality products. Your skin deserves that kind of loving!
Natural Fragrance Is The Bomb-Diggity
If you didn’t already know, natural fragrance is kind of the ‘bees knees’ when it comes to skin care. Products that use natural fragrance like essential oils not only smell amazing, but the scent lasts longer. Plus you get all of the added health benefits that come with it. For example, essential oil ylang-ylang is not only one of the most popular smells there is, but it also helps to reduce acne and skin irritation and is even a natural antiseptic. Other essential oils have scents that can change your mood. Lavender, for example, is known as a scent that can calm you down in times of stress or anxiety.
Besides the fact that using synthetic fragrances mean you’re missing out on all the added benefits, they can also cause skin irritation and upset the PH levels of your skin which can cause health problems. Some companies often attempt to hide their synthetic fragrances in the ingredients list with fancy words, so make sure you have a good read of the packaging before making your purchase.
It’s Better For Your Overall Health
You already know that eating unnatural and over processed foods isn’t super great for your health, so why would you put it in your skin? The pores in your skin absorb all of the ingredients you put on there. So it makes sense that you probably shouldn’t put anything on your skin you wouldn’t put in your mouth. In fact, absorbing chemicals this way can be worse than eating them. The skin isn’t designed to filter things out the way your digestive system is. The chemicals you put on your skin are eventually absorbed into your body. This can cause all kinds of health problems… scary! Keeping it natural means caring for your skin the way nature intended. While we believe it’s best to avoid chemicals at all costs, at the very least please make sure your products are paraben and sulphate free, that stuff is not good.
At PamBam organics we are so passionate when it comes to educating our customers about natural and organic skin care. We believe that the more people that move over to using natural products, the more of a positive impact we will have on the environment and our overall health. Just be sure that when you purchase ‘natural’ products that the ingredients are sourced in an environmentally friendly manner. We are proud to say that all of the ingredients in our range are environmentally friendly. If you are thinking of making the switch to natural skincare, check out our range of products here.
