From the 6th until the 14th of June, it's Bioweek again.
The perfect moment to answer the following question: why bio skincare?
Organic skin care works in harmony with the skin and supports its natural ability to balance and repair itself. Only natural ingredients in their purest form – such as plant extracts, vegetable oils, floral waters and essential oils – are full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids and can truly nourish your skin. Conventional cosmetics often contain petroleum and minerals oils that leave a film on the top layer of the skin. As a consequence thereof, the skin can no longer breathe and eliminate toxins (the skin is responsible for a quarter of the daily detoxification of the body), which leads to clogged pores and a dull skin.
Moreover, a very large part of the products you put on your skin, enter the bloodstream directly. On average, a woman uses 12 to 20 personal care products a day as part of her beauty routine. In order to minimize the absorption of potentially hazardous chemical substances, it is therefore advisable to choose for natural personal care products.
The word ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ is not legally protected, so any producer can use this without the product being truly natural and organic. Always look for the certificate of an independent certification body, such as Ecocert, Natrue or BDIH.
You'll notice the difference, just give it a try!
