Up to 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed by the body and when the products we use are made from harmful artificial ingredients these place an unnecessary burden on the body’s detoxification processes and immune system. Some chemicals remain stored in the body for months or years before they are completely eliminated. Every product we use on our skin will also eventually end up in soil and waterways, where it can further impact microorganisms and aquatic life.
The most active, pure and beneficial cosmetic ingredients come from organic or biodynamic plants and have undergone minimal processing. A long ingredient list tends to mean that the product only contains minimal amounts of each ingredient: whilst they might have great properties, if only tiny quantities are present they are not going to work as well. It’s best to stick with those products that can define their main uses and benefits with only a few ingredients.
Why buy organic?
- Organic farming is the production of products without the use of synthetic chemicals or genetically modified components.
- Organic products are not necessarily completely chemical free, but the pesticide residues will be considerably lower than those found in produce manufactured with synthetic chemicals.
- Organic farming is better for the environment and more sustainable.
The use of the word ‘organic’ is not regulated in Australia, so it is important to make sure that products you buy come from certified growers and producers. Our organic products are certified by accredited certifying organisations.
We live in a toxic world and whilst some things can’t be avoided, there are many ways we can reduce the toxins in our environment. We have a great range of toxin free products to help you reduce or eliminate many chemicals in your environment and to assist in actively detoxing your body and life on a daily basis. Any steps you can make, no matter how small, to a toxin-free lifestyle is a step in the right direction!
Eco friendly and sustainable products are those products that provide environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health and the environment over their whole life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials until the final disposal. We support the use of eco friendly and sustainable materials and where possible provide products that meet this criteria.
People choose to be vegan for health, environmental, and/or ethical reasons. Many vegans choose this lifestyle to promote a more humane and caring world. They know they are not perfect, but believe they have a responsibility to try to do their best, while not being judgmental of others. We stock a range of vegan friendly products available at a glance under our lifestyle category.
