I first discovered Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic last year when I was sourcing certified and organic essential oils to make my own natural skin care products at home. I had heard of the name before, in magazines and publications so I was delighted to see that the certified organic and natural products were within my price range. I had been doing my research and had been recommended them on several platforms and forums online. They are a multi-award winning pioneer of organic beauty since 1981, where the first shop was established in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden in London.
Today I am going to outline the fantastic benefits of chemical free natural skin care. Firstly, I will highlight the dangers of toxins found in regular, everyday cosmetics. Not many people know this, but there is a lot of leniency given to cosmetic brands as regards to what they put into the products in todays market. The skin absorbs up to 60% of whatever we apply so we need to make a conscious decision as to what chemicals, if any, we are applying.
“With the exception of color additives and a few prohibited ingredients, a cosmetic manufacturer may use almost any raw material as a cosmetic ingredient and market the product without an approval from FDA,” quoted by The Federal Food and Drug Administration.
