Organic September, the UK's annual celebration of all things organic. This years focus is on the campaign for clarity, to show the cosmetic industry that greenwashing bottles and labels just won't do. It's time to reclaim our organic! Organic has become a buzzword in beauty for brands to use, however it doesn't always stand true. Unlike organic food there is no legal standard in place for organic beauty. What can we do? Look for the Soil Association logo to ensure that you are truly being delivered an organic product.
IF I AM NOT CURRENTLY USING AN ORGANIC SKINCARE PRODUCT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AT THE MOST BASIC LEVEL?
There will be a multitude of synthetic chemicals in the product which are not for your skin but to increase shelf life, add colour, stabilize product, add smell and bind together oil and water as this is a much cheaper way to fill product up.
The reality is that daily cleansing, moisturising and deodorizing rituals can mean a cocktail of hundreds of different chemicals being applied to and absorbed into the skin.
Individual ingredients vary in their ability to penetrate the skin, some are absorbed in tiny amounts and others can reach the blood vessels below the skin and be transported around the body. Whilst one product may only contain very small amounts of a particular synthetic ingredient - it is the cumulative effect of applying various products regularly to the skin that causes concern.
We are absorbing a vast array of new synthetic chemicals in beauty products most of which have not had long term full testing on humans. at the same time allergies and skin disorders such as eczema are increasing.
The wider much more serious health impact of regular chemical absorption into the skin is still undergoing extensive scientific research.
THE SCIENCE OF ORGANIC SKINCARE.
Never be fooled into thinking there is no science behind organic skincare & that because Pinks Boutique products are not produced in a white bottle with medi-science terminology that they have not researched and found the scientific route to hydrated, radiant skin.
Branding with big chemical words and concepts is often much cheaper than actually having to deliver real natural extracts that work in harmony with your skin and body. Consequently this is why they do not do this but blind you with science instead.
If the product you are using does contain grown ingredients - plant extracts, oils, essential oils etc and these are not grown on organic land they could have been grown with the use of manufactured (synthetic) fertilizers, pesticides (which include herbicides, insecticides and fungicides), plant growth regulators such as hormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, genetically modified organisms, human sewage, and nanomaterials.
If you think about how plants grow the nutrients, along with these synthetic chemicals, in the soil will be absorbed through the root system and will continue up into the plant. Hence, any ingredient you take from it will also contain those additives. none of these are known to have any benefits for the skin and instead you build up toxins in your body. This is the same process for organic and non organic food.
Pinks Boutique care as much about what we put on our skin as what we put into our mouths. The organic cosmetic industry is younger than the organic food industry but its aim is the same - reducing the amount of chemicals toxins in our bodies.
Pinks Boutique Organic ingredients are the most potent due to their purity with vastly higher amounts of vitamins, anti oxidants and omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids to defect ageing free radicals, build healthy skin cells and reduce ageing.
Bioactive seed oils used in the Pinks Boutique products achieve results for the skin as they have a smaller molecule size and weight which can be absorbed more rapidly by the skin than a mainstream skincare product.
