The use of natural organic cosmetics should be the primary approach of the cosmetic industry. By now, I am very much in natural and healthy products, food, fashion, cosmetics, and everything natural organic, and sustainable you could think about. The reason is that I try to avoid all the toxic substances in the typical industrial products that disrupt our hormones and create diseases, among them autoimmune diseases.
To heal and stay healthy is my mission. I hope to reach many people with the message of treating themselves, others, and the planet in a healthy way. It is so essential for us to change our lifestyle, for ourselves and the Earth. Using organic cosmetics has become natural to me, like breathing, and for my age, I have beautiful skin.
Many beautiful products on the market consist of natural oils or butter, which will not burden you with toxic substances.
These cosmetics nourish your skin, and by combining them with healthy food and exercise, drinking lots of pure water, they will bring the most significant effect to your skin.
I use natural, organic skincare for my whole body. Sometimes, I get eczema in my ears and use neem oil, a disinfectant, and a fungicide, and the eczema is gone within two days.
My skin always looks good. Of course, my lifestyle of consuming lots of raw vegetables, fruits, seeds, and green powders complements my cosmetic regime, and I try to avoid my body’s toxic load.
When I started using cosmetics, I experimented with toxic cosmetics around 15 years of age because I didn’t know better.
My search for organic cosmetics started in my 40th, so you see, it took me a long time to get there. 🙂
The Use of Natural Organic Face Products
I think if you knew what kind of ingredients are in an industrial-made facial cream or makeup, you wouldn’t use it for sure. No one who knows about the toxic chemicals and their damaging effects would put such products on their skin, and I can’t imagine!
Otherwise, some ignorants don’t want to know, as long it gives them a good feeling, or they might be very young thinking it will not harm me.
I tell you, what you put onto your skin will penetrate the skin and can harm you. These toxic ingredients are stored in the cells and the tissues.
This should be already a big reason to switch to organic cosmetics. You can even make them yourself, but many great companies have done everything for you; you need only to purchase a product you like.
But even these companies are quite different, asking you all kinds of prices. So you have affordable and expensive cosmetic products on the market, but the cheap cosmetic is quite good.
My featured brand is CMD, a German organic cosmetic brand. They make great products and are not that expensive.
I have used them already for years on my face, in winter a thick caring cream, but in summer a light moisturizer. You can buy them online; Amazon.de has these products too.
Finding out what brand and products suit you is a lot of fun. By testing them, you will discover how comfortable the consistency of the cream feels.
Many brands send you test items helping you find out what feels perfect to you.
My skin routine starts with my use of first organic oil and then a protecting or moisturizing cream. In summer, I love organic Aloe Vera Gel under my moisturizer, which cools my skin. A perfect feeling! My skin is never dry.
There has been a time I had difficulties keeping my skin moisturized in winter. Being very dry, nearly flaky resulted from my transition period of switching to healthy food consumption. The body was detoxing and repairing, so my skin looked dry. After the transition period had finished, my skin looked perfect again.
I always end my skincare routine with organic makeup to balance my skin tone. If you buy a product with two to four natural ingredients, you are on the safe side. I already mentioned that these products are affordable nowadays, and you can always go for a trial before buying them.
Why is it Better to Use Natural Organic Products?
I already have given you one reason, your health. The chemicals will stay in your body, in your organs, under your skin; if you have a leaky gut, and most people have, these toxins will also reach your brain, which is a huge reason to avoid these products. What do you think? Do you have experience with organic cosmetics?
Another reason is, we are responsible for what we put on the skin of our children. They are young and vulnerable. I am sure you will not be the one who is making your family sick, contributing to the development of the chronic disease. Every care product bought in the supermarket will finally damage the body, and they are overloaded with toxic ingredients.
A further reason is our environment. The cosmetic industry is a massive polluter of our planet. Producing cosmetics leave too much toxic waste that our planet can’t handle anymore. By poisoning the Earth, the rivers, our drinking water, plastic compounds are found in the sea that let sea life suffer, and our planet drowns in waste.
They have found all kinds of chemicals in our bodies and the environment. Some substances can never disappear because our bodies do not detect them. It is worrying! Do yourself and others and the planet a favor by buying disposable organic products.
Chemicals like xenoestrogens are changing the hormone balance by occupying the estrogen receptors. You found them in plastics of the bottles and tubes, and now in the environment harming reptiles and other animals, and us. We are defiling our world.
Natural Organic Hair Products
I know that organic shampoos and hair styling products are also on the market, which are pretty good. I used to wash my hair with organic shampoo but changed back to commercial products due to the deficiency of organic hair products. Decades ago, there haven’t been so many organic brands in shops; trying to find products wasn’t easy. The Internet had just started.
But nowadays, there are so many natural organic companies that produce non-toxic shampoos, conditioners, and styling products, so there is no excuse anymore not to buy natural stuff. When you have finally found your brand, you will love the products, and maybe you will keep buying them when you have tried the products.
A reason to be dismissive of nonorganic products is that toxins penetrate the body via the scalp. Don’t underestimate the effects.
Organic shampoos have many different fragrances, which are lovely. I love fruity shampoos, like lemon, apple, mango, that smell incredible and make your hair look shiny. I usually color my hair using organic products, but I don’t have the courage to do it myself. My former experiences weren’t so successful, the reason I prefer visiting my hairdresser once in a while.:)
But there are enough organic products you can buy and use on your hair without damaging it. Maybe you have more courage than me.:)
Natural Organic Baby Products
I have no children, but I am a trained pediatric nurse, so I know what I say. If I had a baby or older children, I would certainly not buy toxic products for them, and children are very vulnerable.
Using natural oils is efficient enough to bathe a baby, needing no cream to protect the baby’s skin. It is all nonsense concocted by great industrial advertisers who want you to buy their products.
Babies are not getting dirty, and their skin is still intact and natural, needing no soap. Forget about all these so-called baby brands that are not necessary! Even in summer, don’t put toxic suncream on your baby’s skin, but a hat and a T-Shirt are good protection from the harmful sun rays. Better never leave your baby in the sun but under a tree or an umbrella, and use non-toxic sun protection.
Sun creams from supermarkets and pharmacies are primarily toxic, and the immune system of the little ones is not used to all these chemicals, which the body can’t get rid of anyway. An excellent organic cream is a better option, especially for the wintertime. I don’t know an organic baby product line, but I am convinced many are on the market. However, don’t put too many creams on your baby’s skin; it is not necessary. Our body is made perfect by God. And babies still have flawless working skin.
Luckily many companies are producing sustainable organic cosmetics that are non-toxic for us and the environment. The choice has become broad, and there is undoubtedly something for everyone among the products, skin and hair products.
It should become our lifestyle to use natural organic cosmetics to complement our skin, preventing our body’s damage. When we leave this planet, we should leave it in good shape for our children and grandchildren. Something to think about, and you can always make your products which are not difficult to produce!
Please leave a comment below, what you think about this topic. Do you already purchase organic cosmetics, or are you still using products full of toxic ingredients. I would love to hear from you!
To Your Health,

Hey Sylvia. It’s difficult once we start to question the way products are made. Because it’s not only what’s in the products, but also how they are packaged and sent.
I keep being amazed that so many organic products are packaged in plastic pots and bottles. And I dislike Amazon Spain for their way of sending everything separately and with lots of plastic involved. I heard Amazon UK deals with that differently. How is Amazon NL in that regard?
I started making cleaning products myself. Not a lot yet, because I want to have a lot of knowledge first, but it’s a very interesting trial. 🙂
You are very right, Hannie!
That is why I am always looking for products in disposable bottles and the best in a glass. Also, Amazon Germany sends them in a cardboard parcel, so there is no plastic involved. Amazon Nederland has just begun, till now you could only order books.
I made my own creams, and I use oil out of a glass flacon. I give you a link; you can check it out.
