With all the coverage these days about global warming and the green movement, it seems that everywhere you turn someone is trying to sell you natural beauty and health products. It seems that more and more businesses are trying to jump on the bandwagon in an effort to try and sell more products to you the consumer.
The truth is that not all ‘natural’ beauty and health products are truly natural. Some products are better than others. You will find that some products work and some don’t. Some natural products are less harmful to the environment and some are just totally damaging the environment, that everyone says they are intent on saving.
What to believe and what not to believe? With the credit crunch biting harder all the time, it is just not possible to try out all the products to see if they do what they claim to do. One way to find out how natural your ‘natural’ beauty and health product is to look at the label. Check through the ingredients if there are ingredients that you can’t pronounce and then the likelihood is they are chemicals or preservatives and you want to avoid these. This will give you a clue which ones are really natural and which ones aren’t.
One of the all natural beauty and health products that can have the most impact is women’s make-up. What seems to be all the rage these days is mineral make-up but, of course, as you can guess not all mineral make-up is the same.
As well as make-up, there are other natural beauty and health products available. These include, shampoo, perfumes, ointment for aching joints and soaps. These products can carry the natural label, but once again, are they? As previously said, read the ingredients to find out if they are truly 100% natural; highly technical terms in the list of ingredients – chances are we are back again with the preservatives, artificial stabilisers which are used to prolong the shelf life of the products. If you truly want to use natural beauty products then you will definitely want to avoid these products.
An excellent way to do something for ourselves and the environment is to use all natural beauty and health products. 100% natural products are safer for those who suffer from allergies as there is far less chance of being allergic to them. Many of the natural beauty products come from renewable sources and this lessens the strain on the environment.
