We never realized how many chemicals we put onto our skin until we took a hard look at the products in our medicine cabinet.

Here are tips from SKiN on how to find safe, natural products:
Did you know that when products are made from harmful and synthetic ingredients...
- It places an unnecessary burden on the body’s detoxification process.
- It places an unnecessary burden on the entire immune system
- It places an unnecessary burden on our skin
With all of that information alone, why would you risk harming your skin?
Natural ingredients are much safer
The purest, most beneficial ingredients have undergone minimal processing (look for first cold pressed extra virgin plant oils and steam-distilled essential oils) that come from organic sources. SKiN looks for those ingredients!
So, how do you find safe skincare?
Choosing safer skin and body care products will mean your have to read labels. As you become familiar with ingredients your skin will know the difference. The environment will too! If you find that you can’t decipher the ingredients in your products without a PhD in chemical science, chances are that your body might have trouble knowing what to do with those ingredients as well!
Be aware of products with a very long shelf life and excessively long ingredient list. This usually means that the product contains only minimal amounts of each ingredient. (They might have great properties but if only tiny quantities are present of each ingredient, they are not going to work as well.
