I have been an advocate of raw skincare for years and I’m often asked what the difference is from organic and more conventional skincare, I wanted to give my view on why raw is a good option.
The skin is the largest organ of the body with many functions; one of these is absorption, taking in from the outside drawing into the body.
Many of today’s beauty products are made up of varying mixtures of synthetically produced chemicals which are undeniably toxic to our bodies. Individual ingredients vary in their ability to penetrate the skin, some are absorbed in tiny amounts while some can reach the blood vessels below the skin and be transported around the body. While one product may contain very small amounts of some of these harmful ingredients, it is the cumulative effect of applying various products regularly that causes concern.
Don’t underestimate the power of what you apply to the skin, as much as the skin is a protective barrier it obviously does absorb a substantial amount of what is applied to it as doctors use this method for administering drugs such as hormone and nicotine patches.
Organic skincare has become a staple to many savvy beauty product consumers; they know their synthetics from their naturals and some are genuinely concerned about what they are applying to themselves and family members. We know the importance of good, healthy nutrition, a balanced diet made up of cooked and raw, and all the sub categories of proteins, fibres and fats in-between. We know we are made up of what we eat, aware that steaming our vegetables is a lot healthier than boiling to death, including fresh fruit and vegetables in our daily diet is vital to good health along with our daily exercise, yoga or Pilates class.
This makes a raw skin food product sound more plausable and appealing, knowing that our skin absorbs what we put on it, it makes total sense to embrace a new, different kind of skincare to match our internal healthy lifestyle, an ethos wholly understandable and credible, ingredients that have not been boiled but kept as fresh and alive and active as possible that our skin will absorb what we put on it… is raw skin food the future of genuinely pure age defying, health lengthening products….. Maybe
