The world has gone back from using chemical products to using natural and organic products in the last few years. There was a time when all these beauty and skincare products that were made with chemicals were gaining immense popularity. The general public was unaware of the harm these products could cause to them and their loved ones.
Suddenly the world came to a screeching halt in 2019 and the world realized that there were some things we were doing wrong somewhere. Since then the demand for natural and organic products has grown multiple times. The same demand rise has been seen in natural and organic skincare products.
The reason these products have gained so much success in such a short period is that they have produced amazing results in skincare throughout the world. We as Indians should be proud of the fact that we as a nation are the pioneers of this change that we see today. We have been using natural products for skin care for centuries. But since globalization became a thing, chemicals and chemical products flooded the Indian markets as well. Now, after seeing the aftermath of these chemical products, people have started shifting towards natural products again.
What are natural and organic skincare products?
These are the products that do not have any chemicals involved in their manufacturing process. They are manufactured using plants, fruits, vegetables and everything that mother nature can provide to us.
What are the benefits of natural and organic skincare products?
There are many benefits to using natural and organic skincare products. Let me try and explain the benefits to you
Provide nutrition to the skin:
as we all have learnt in our early school days; the skin is the largest organ in our body. Hence it should be given the highest amount of care as well, right? However, we have ignored our skin’s nutrition for decades now by using chemicals every day. These natural and organic products are rich in nutritional values which are great for our skin. They can provide vital elements such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to the skin. Using these products can have amazing benefits on your skin texture, quality and even skin tone.
Great for people with sensitive skin:
as these products do not carry any artificial chemicals, they are also great for people with sensitive skin. They don’t cause any irritation on the surface of the skin and are therefore the first choice for people with sensitive skin. They give much more benefits than any chemical compound present in the market today. And also, while using these products, there is almost 0% chance that you will get any infection or allergies.
During the production of chemical products, one of the main ingredients which is used is petroleum, yes, you heard that right. The same thing that runs your cars is in your skin lotion as well. But that’s not the point, the point I’m trying to make here is that extraction of this petroleum is a process that has been hurting mother earth for a very long time and it is not sustainable either. That is why we see a major shift from petroleum vehicles towards electric vehicles. The same goes for our skincare routine as well, instead of using harmful chemicals, we should use ingredients that our precious mother earth can readily provide to us.
Ethical production practices:
a lot of these companies that produce chemical-based products test their products on animals first. This practice has been going on for decades now. Imagine how many animals must have lost their lives during these testing procedures! On the other hand, companies that produce natural and organic products don’t test their products on animals. They choose compassion over profits and that’s why they are a better choice.
Having a glass of water is much healthier than having a glass of Coke, right? Why is that?
The answer is obvious, water naturally hydrates our body for a long time, whereas Coke is made by adding chemicals, therefore even if it’s giving you hydration for a short period, it is also harming you from the inside. The same criteria apply to natural and organic skincare products. They are much more environmentally friendly than chemical products. Thus, using them is going to benefit you as well as mother earth.
Q. What are some examples of plants used in these products?
A. plants like aloe vera, eucalyptus, and sandalwood are some examples of plants used in these products.
Q. How can we say these products are genuinely natural?

Q. I have oily type skin, what natural products should I use?
A. if you have oily skin, products that have aloe vera and aloe vera extracts would be helpful for you.
Q. which brand is the best for buying natural and organic compounds?
A. no one brand can be named here as almost all the brands that deal in natural products follow the same practices. You can try and choose from any website as they are more readily available online these days.
Q. Are there any side effects of these products?
A. no, there are no side effects of these products, however, if you are allergic to something that is in the ingredients list, then you must stay away from that product.
