I know this should seem patently obvious but it really isn't. First of all, many teens suffer with acne. Hormone changes in the body bring on this condition and because people deem it visually embarrassing , there is almost nothing that parents and children wont try to tame an outbreak and help clear skin. This said, many of them are doing more harm than good without even realizing it.
Most skin care on the market is filled with chemical fragrance, chemical additives and chemical preservatives. Many of these chemicals have been shown to interfere with reproductive systems, hormones and some are shown to cause cancer. Due to the fact that they are deemed safe by the FDA, they are allowed in our skin care. Lax regulations has been causing health concerns in humans for several generations in this age of instant gratification and immediate results.
The good news is that there are alternatives. Organic skin care is making a huge impact on the cosmetic market and taking the beauty world by storm. People are concerned with the side effects of all these chemicals and awareness has caused them to look for alternatives.
Of course we want you to buy our products. They are organic, 100% Vegan and Cruelty free. However, as a consumer you have other choices in organic skincare. Make sure that you look at the ingredients on the skin care products. Key words to avoid are the following :
