Certified organic skin care products come from the earth and help to heal and cleanse the mind, body and soul. The whole person, which is what The Pushy Goat is ALL about.
Did you know that an average person smothers approximately 10 different skin care products on their skin daily. And since our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, it acts as a sponge, absorbing 80% of everything that we apply on it.
Grab the nearest skincare product near you right now! Got it? Great, now take a look at the ingredients list. You're probably going to see words you can’t even pronounce. RED FLAG!
Before you put anything in your body or on your skin you definitely need to know what ingredients they contain and whether or not they’re good for you.
Most chemicals in skin care products will contain parabens. Parabens can be a whole family of chemicals (methylparabens, propylparabens, butylparabens, and ethylparabens) that help preserve the shelf-life of products, but necessarily preserve your skin.
Parabens can mimic estrogen in the body disrupting our delicate hormonal balance. They’ve been linked to breast cancer and since they act as a hormone disruptor they can lead to reproductive and fertility issues.
Another big no-no is fragrance! This one doesn’t sound so scary, but “fragrance” is considered a trade secret which means that companies don’t have to disclose what ingredients are inside. Let me repeat, they do not have to disclose those ingredients. This is a sneaky one! It’s in sooooo many products! Often, the ingredients include tons of chemicals that can cause allergies, and again, hormone disruption leads to bigger health problems, reproductive issues, and infertility.
Organic skin care is also better for the environment.
Organic ingredients are grown and produced using sustainable practices. Since there are no harsh chemicals in these products, there is significantly less waste and toxins going down the drain and back into the earth.
When you choose organic beauty products you are not only doing wonders for your skin and internal health, but also making a positive impact on our environment.
So why should you make the switch to organic products? Organic skin care is rooted in a holistic approach to farming and production. When you choose organic skin care, you are using ingredients that work in harmony with your body, allowing your skin to better balance and heal itself. So when you’re applying organic skin care to your skin it’s absorbing only fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs, and plants. All which work to restore and strengthen YOUR body’s cells, naturally.
The Pushy Goat is about treating the whole person. We choose to use the brand Eminence in our spa. Those products are proudly free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals.
Come on in and give it a try. Schedule an appointment or shoot me any questions you may have. We want to treat the WHOLE you.
