Organic beauty products ’popular because of concerns about harsh chemicals’
The popularity of organic beauty products has grown in part because of concerns over the presence of harsh chemicals in many cleansers, toners and moisturisers.
This is the opinion of freelance beauty editor Zara Stone Rabinowicz, who pointed out: "Organic skincare has been on people's radar for some time now, with many people choosing to go the natural route as they are worried about what they are using in their skincare.
"Recent stories about toxic ingredients in some beauty products - like nail varnish and the Keratin blow dry - have made people more likely to go the organic route," she noted.
While not everyone will find switching to natural beauty products improves their complexion, those with easily irritated skin are most likely to benefit.
"People with sensitive skin may find organic products kinder on their skin, but for the most part, the benefits are all in the individual products themselves and can't be classed as a whole," Zara added.
And with Earth Day being held around the world this Sunday (April 22nd), what could be better than to ditch the products that make your skin flare up and instead opt for cleansers containing naturally derived ingredients that don't have such a damaging effect on the environment as artificially created chemicals?
If you're feeling generous, you could treat a friend to eco-friendly gifts in the form of organic skincare products. Fushi's cold pressed coconut oil is fair trade and sourced from micro community projects in Samoa, as well as being certified organic by the Soil Association.
Meanwhile, research from the Fairtrade Foundation last month revealed that women in the UK are more likely than men to invest in ethical products, with a survey finding 63 per cent of females believe strongly in the principles of fair trade and other ethical issues.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
