Natural cosmetics: is it so good?

In the last couple of decades, the term “organic cosmetics” has appeared in the vocabulary of women. This means that shampoos, creams, and masks consist entirely of safe natural ingredients and therefore only benefit. In this article, we’ll help you figure it out really.

The advantages of “chemistry” and the shortcomings of “organic”

We would like to note at once that any kind of cosmetics, both natural and industrial, is best selected according to the individual characteristics of an organism under the guidance of cosmetologist or doctor (if there are any indications). In most cases, you can achieve the maximum benefit from care products by using organic and industrial products in one complex. Many natural ingredients enhance the positive effect of inorganic ingredients and improve the condition of hair, nails, and skin.

So, products marked “natural” often contain extracts of eucalyptus, sandalwood, mint, and menthol, as well as essential oils of citrus, lavender, geranium, ylang-ylang. They can cause irritation on the skin and serious allergic reactions. Skin and hair can react with the appearance of dryness, peeling, and inflammation. Natural shampoos will not help create volume, deeply clean the hair and can not cope with the “furry” stitches. In this case, products with silicone are recommended to women with porous hair, since it glues the flakes and gives it shine. Shampoos, which include sulfates, help to cleanse hair from skin fat and give it a volume. Many anti-aging creams and lotions with an extract of sea-buckthorn, current or orchids are not as effective as inorganic, enriched with synthesized hyaluronic acid and collagen. Organic creams cannot cope completely with skin pigmentation.

It is hard to find at 80% natural cosmetics on the shelves of shops. One of its shortcomings is short shelf life. This nuance does not allow to keep and use it to the end. Therefore, industrial brands often cunning, releasing organic cosmetics. 100% natural cosmetics is created in "home" conditions by mixing organic components. Without compliance with sterile purity, natural cosmetics can cause serious skin infection. Therefore, it is better to either create it yourself or buy from trusted brands who comply with the storage conditions of products.
