Due to all of the many studies that have been conducted in recent years, we are finding out that ninety percent of the man-made chemicals that are in our skin care products are highly detrimental to our health. This has led to a wave of new, organic facial cleansers and other skin care products. These products are becoming very popular very quickly. In fact, their popularity is growing almost exponentially. There are still many companies that are using man-made chemical ingredients in their skin care products, but these products are diminishing as the organic products take precedence. In the following article, we will review some of the many dangers of chemical ingredients and why organic products are the wave of the future in this market as well.

Skin care may possibly be the fastest growing division of the beauty industry. Within this industry, there are good products and there are bad products. Without even realizing it, most of us apply or are subject to hundreds of chemicals on our skin every day. There are a myriad of different facial cleansers and other skin care products that contain cancer causing agents. They also include other ingredients that may irritate the skin or aggravate any skin conditions that one already has. Even lanolin, which is in many lotions, can be harmful. Lanolin comes from sheep wool and most of the time sheep wool will be riddled with different types of pesticides. Many fragrances have also been found to be generally detrimental. These fragrances can even cause skin allergies that never existed before.

Preservatives can do the same thing. Preservatives and fragrances should always be avoided if possible. Fragrances and preservatives are man-made chemicals that are in a great deal of mainstream skin care products and facial cleansers. Of course, there is also the problem of an ingredient label on most of these products. Companies are not required to show an ingredient label, so you have to do the research yourself. Skin allergies developed by fragrances or preservatives can lead to minor problems like inflamed skin or watery eyes, but they can also lead to more severe problems like depression or even memory lapses.

Luckily, mainstream skin care products are not the only option any more. Organic skin care is being embraced by people around the globe. Organic facial cleansers have the ability to detoxify your skin, which will exfoliate it. Exfoliation is very important because it keeps your pores open. When your pores are open, the toxins in your skin can be released. Releasing these toxins will boost your skin's natural ability to heal itself. Organic facial cleansers can also help to reduce wrinkles over time. Organic facial cleansers can also help both teenagers and adults alike conquer their acne problems. Organic facial cleansers can be used with any skin type, which is the basis for any good facial cleanser or skin care product. Some organic cleansers may be a bit more pricey than some other mainstream products, but they are well worth the investment if you have the money.
