Eliminating The Toxic Chemicals In Your Skincare And Beauty Routine

Eliminating The Toxic Chemicals In Your Skincare And Beauty Routine

In your commitment to natural beauty, you have probably started reading the ingredient list of your skin-care and beauty products. Between the label and the ingredient list, it can be difficult to tell if a product is truly all-natural. At Natural French Soap, we are committed to helping you achieve all of your skin-care and beauty goals – without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals.

 

How Many Chemical’s Do You Apply To Your Skin Each Day?

Many men and women are searching to, at the very least, reduce the number of chemicals in their daily skin-care and beauty routine. The average woman uses around 12 external beauty products each day, containing an average of 170 different chemicals. This is split between soap, lotions, lip balm, hair products, deodorant, toothpaste, make-up, nail polish, and a long list of additional body products.

 

Your Skin And Your Body Deserve Better!

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. What you apply to your skin, is just as important as what you eat. Many of us have switched to a cleaner diet, but have yet to consider what we put on our skin each day. The benefits of natural products, made from ingredients found in nature are many. Not only are naturally derived beauty products chemical-free, but they allow you to address your individual beauty concerns.

 

The Reasons To Go Natural Are Many

The reasons to go natural are many. Some of the most common reasons people switch to, or never stray from, naturally derived skin-care solutions include:

  • You are trying to go chemical-free
  • You have sensitive skin
  • You want family-friendly products
  • You want to address specific skin-care or beauty solutions
  • You want to take a proactive approach to ageing
  • The signs of ageing are starting to show, and you want to slow them down

 

General Rule Of Thumb

As a general rule of thumb, if you can’t pronounce it, or if the ingredients look like they come from a lab, it is likely not a truly natural product. That is not to say that some of the ingredients are not natural, but that not all of them are.

 

Natural Products Tend To Have Shorter Ingredient Lists

Another thing you will notice once you begin reading labels is that natural products tend to have a much shorter list of ingredients. This is likely because nature effortlessly provides us with the skin-care and beauty solutions you require, so a small combination is often all that is needed. However, this is not the case with all natural products.

 

It Doesn’t Have To Be 100 Percent

Whether speaking of your diet, or your skin-care and beauty routine, your commitment to natural does not need to be 100%. We all have a favourite pre-packed, or less than healthy, food we like to enjoy – and the same goes for skincare products. Many aim for somewhere between 80 to 90 percent natural and then indulge in some of the less than natural beauty products they love.

 

A General List To Avoid

As mentioned above, the average woman applies around 170 chemicals to her body each day. While learning or remembering all of these chemicals would be a challenge, here is a short list to avoid:

  • Parabens
  • Petroleum
  • Phthalates
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Formaldehyde
  • Aluminium
  • Synthetic Fragrance
  • Synthetic Colour

 

Natural Products Are Often Animal-Friendly Products

Much of the mass produced and over-the-counter skin-care and beauty products you use each day have been tested on animals to ensure that they are safe for humans. However, almost every natural skincare company out there has a strict anti-animal testing policy. At Natural French Soap, all our products are tested on friends and never on animals.

 

We are dedicated to providing you with nature-made, chemical-free skincare and beauty solutions and we are constantly adding to our product lines!
