As a writer focusing on wellness, I have recently read a lot about skin care ingredients that are questionable or unsafe and the ones that are reported as safe and beneficial.
And as a woman and a Mom, I just like to use more natural and organic products nowadays.
I had no clue, until a few years ago, how many chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis, coming in all forms from inhaling, to eating, to putting on our skin.
So if we can make a safer choice, I'm all for it!
It's all about being an informed consumer and choosing safer ingredients.
I mean, why not right? It just can't hurt
Even if you choose just SOME organic products in your life, it certainly cuts your chemical exposure.
If you can buy just 15%-25% organic foods, same thing.It's a good start! This is not our great-grandmother's world.
This is a world of chemical sprayings and factories. We all know that.
So making some healthier natural living choices can only be said to improve our health. There are no guarantees it will stave off cancer or other illness but there is proof that eating "bad" and using a lot of chemicals can raise your risk of diseases. When there is a choice, choose natural or organic ( and there are usually choices)
