You shouldn't have to choose between your health and beauty products that work

By Sponsored July 21, 2022

We’re constantly reminded that organic fruit and veg helps us remain strong and healthy, but did you know that using organic beauty and skincare products is just as beneficial for your skin? 

Choosing organic products isn’t just skin deep – it can be better for you on both the inside and the outside. Every day we hear more and more about the toxic, carcinogenic ingredients in things we use all the time, especially most skin care products. Your skin is your largest organ and since it is very porous, it absorbs over 80% of whatever you put on it. Many studies have found that your face is several times more permeable than the rest of your body, making it that much more critical to be cautious of the products you use daily. I mean really, does it make any sense to put to dangerous chemicals on your lips and eyes??

In my quest for products that would be the most effective and least harmful to my skin, I discovered Neal's Yard Remedies, an organic botanical skincare company that began in England in1981 and is now available in America. So if, like me, you are worried about what you put on your skin, let me give you 5 reasons why switching from non-organic skincare makes perfect sense for your overall health and wellbeing.

5 reasons to use organic skincare

If you’re looking to improve the look and feel of your skin, there are so many reasons to choose organic products. Green, clean beauty is bigger and better than ever, so there’s no need to compromise on your skincare routine by using synthetic ingredients. 

1. You and your family deserve safer products

The United  States has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938! Over 1,400 chemicals and ingredients that are banned from personal care products in Europe, but guess how many are banned in the United States? Only 30!!  There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don't have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. Companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients and make their own judgments about their safety.  We all deserve better and safer products.

2. They are made with natural ingredients, not harsh chemicals 

Organic products use raw, natural ingredients that are sustainably sourced and grown organically, using non genetically modified (GM) ingredients, which means they haven’t been altered in any way.

Neal's Yard Remedies products never contain any of the following: synthetic dyes, colors or fragrances, silicones, parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, DEA, EDTA, nanoparticles, genetically modified organisms (GMO), petroleum or BHT. Why? All of these things may have a detrimental impact on your skin and body.

NYR operates on the precautionary principle which simply means that when in doubt about an ingredient's safety, they simply leave it out.

3. They are better for your skin

Organic products naturally contain higher levels of glow-boosting antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Once these ingredients absorb into your skin, they do good from the inside, working alongside your body’s natural abilities to increase collagen production, prevent free radical damage, and improve blood and oxygen flow to the skin.

All of these things have a long-term impact, helping you feel just as good as you look. As a result, you’re more likely to notice a reduction in redness and irritation, and you may also see your skin’s feel and appearance improve.

Neal's Yard Remedies products are LUXURIOUS PRODUCTS THAT WORK! Over the years, I have tried a lot of natural or organic products. Some were okay, but frankly, most were disappointing. I love that NYR products are not only organic and healthy, but they actually work! Their eye cream feels so luxurious that you would swear it came from a high-end boutique, my skin has never looked better, plus all their products smell heavenly!

4. They are Cruelty-free

Organic, natural ingredients don’t need to be tested on animals because they’re already safe and harmless for humans to use. This means organic products allow you to look good and feel good naturally without any guilt.

When you buy organic products from Neal’s Yard Remedies, you can be sure that they haven’t been tested on animals. They  never have, and they never will. That’s why they are Leaping Bunny approved.

5. They are more likely to be sustainably sourced

Organic products are kind to the earth. They’re picked where they’re grown, minimizing their impact on the planet. They’re also grown without harsh chemicals, so they’re more environmentally friendly than synthetic ingredients.  

Not only that, but natural ingredients benefit the people we source some of these ingredients from. For example, we source our chiuri butter ethically from Nepal, helping around 60 women from the village of Nayapanizufa who harvest fruit from the chiuri trees. We also source organic honey from Chiapas in Mexico, supporting indigenous communities in hard-to-access villages with selling their produce.

To get you started on your natural and organic journey, start with NYR's most-loved organic skincare collection, Rehydrating Rose: This kit is for normal skin types, that may also have a shiny T-zone or occasional blemishes. Perfect for most adults as well as teens.

These products use the essence of damask roses. The richly fragrant Turkish damask roses are grown and distilled in farming co-operatives, while the Lebanese roses grow at high altitude on Mount Lebanon.  Both the Turkish and Lebanese damask roses are handpicked in the early morning and kept cool before being distilled within hours of being picked to maximize and preserve their benefits and precious aroma.

Rehydrating Rose Skincare for Normal and Sensitive Skin Types

Begin with their best selling, gently foaming Rose Facial Wash that cleanses normal and sensitive skin types by washing away everyday impurities. This refreshing blend of organic rose otto, soothing pink rose petals and antioxidant-rich aloe vera leaves contains the essence of 120 organic rose petals in every bottle to leave your skin feeling soft, fresh and clean.

Balance and refresh your skin with the Rehydrating Rose Toner. Fresh damask roses are distilled to create this fragrant toner to cleanse and leave skin feeling beautifully refreshed, rehydrated and ready for moisturizing. 

Next, give your skin a natural revitalizing boost with Rehydrating Rose Facial Oil which replenishes your skin’s natural moisture levels while helping protect it from future moisture loss.  Rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins, facial oils are useful in cold, dry weather when chilly winds and central heating may take a toll on your skin as well as during the summer months when your skin may be feeling particularly sun-parched.

Finish with Rehydrating Rose Daily Moister to smooth and help restore skin's natural radiance in a light, easily absorbed antioxidant-rich lotion which has been proven in clinical trials to provide moisture for up to 12 hours.
