Best natural products without sacrificing performance or value
At Iris & Orchid, we understand what you put on your skin is just as important to your overall health as your dietary choices. Many conventional skin care products are a not so skin-friendly cocktail of chemicals that you’d never consider consuming, so why let your skin “drink them” in?
Natural products are more important now than ever. More than half of consumers in a recent Gallup poll would buy organic if they “could afford” to. The other half would too if they knew the real benefits of going green, and… if natural choices were just as affordable as man-made.
First, let’s go over the benefits of a natural and healthy diet… a University of Missouri study found that organic oranges delivered 30% more vitamin C. Plus, the British Journal of Nutrition found that organics contain 18 to 69 percent higher concentrations of antioxidants. This may be because insecticides, herbicides and fungicides actually block a plant’s ability to manufacture phytonutrients, such as polyphenols and antioxidants, according to Organic.org. And this is with a product that has skin; what about unprotected fruit and vegetables? Okay, but what’s the advantage of “green,” clean and safe skincare products?
In an article by Marilyn Gemino, she writes, “The skin is the body’s biggest organ, so it makes sense to consider natural topical products such as cosmetics and personal care items. The FDA doesn’t regulate cosmetics like it does drugs and biologics. As a result, many harmful ingredients are known to be endocrine disruptors, such as phthalates, and are a part of commonly applied products.”
Whether you ingest or apply unnatural products, they can have other profound effects. Not all, but certain synthetic ingredients have been shown, in numerous reports, to be linked to many chronic health conditions – including ADHD, respiratory problems, certain cancers and immune system damage.
Think you’re immune to these threats? Nope. There was an extensive study about harmful chemicals in newborns – you know, those beautiful little bundles, protected from the big bad world? They found that every single baby’s umbilical cord was contaminated with hundreds of industrial chemical compounds, including pesticides, stain repellents, flame retardants, plasticizers, and much, much more.
Yes, it’s impossible to escape from all the chemicals floating around in our lives but you can make choices for healthier alternative options. The Iris & Orchid skincare line is safe, healthy and pH balanced, because you deserve the best, without having to pay a fortune
