Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.
For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?
So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to grow the vege patch? Hydroplanting is an option.
I, for one, still consume non-organic vegetables and pray for the best.
Having said that, products in their purest form can be messy to use. I'm sure you know that turmeric is good for the skin but would you prefer to smear the paste on your face or find a product that uses this ingredient packaged nicely? Thank goodness there are lots of companies who now offer nicely packaged organic products.
So where can we get our organic skincare products? Check out this list I've compiled in no particular order:
