What exactly is organic skincare and why should you join the growing movement towards these products?
The ingredients used in organic skincare are grown without any chemical additives and come from a variety of sources such as herbs, trees, bark, flowers and oils. Benefits abound for making the switch so here's our top 3 reasons;
Effective: Organic skincare products can be more effective due to the lack of chemicals and synthetic ingredients. They can treat a number of skin conditions and are less likely to cause adverse effects.
Your Health; Organic skincare products are better for your health, as what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body and bloodstream.
Our Environment: Organic skincare products are better for the enviroment because organic farming eliminates the use of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers, all of which have a destructive effect on our water and soil.
Here at bellabox, we place an importance on being kind to our skin while also being kind to our environment. We stock a number of eco-friendly skincare brands featuring beautiful organically-derived products and here's our top 10 favourites!
