What Makes Organic Skincare Products Better?

If you’ve spent any time browsing organic skincare ranges, chances are you’ll have noticed these products tend to cost more than their non-organic counterparts.

However, the old saying “you get what you pay for” has never been more appropriate as these organic products are superior in practically every way.

So why are organic skincare products better quality, and perhaps even more importantly, why are they more expensive? Let’s find out.

Gentle Ingredients

One of the primary advantages of organic skincare products is their kind, gentle formulations.

These skin-friendly creams, soaps and moisturisers are crafted using only natural and organic ingredients, meaning they avoid the use of harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances and synthetic additives.

The gentle ingredients frequently found in organic shower gel help to hydrate, calm and nourish, without causing irritation.

Soothing And Hydrating Properties

Organic skincare products often boast unbeatable soothing and hydrating properties. Packed full of nourishing ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil, shea butter, chamomile, lavender and calendula, to name just a few, natural skincare possesses anti-inflammatory and calming attributes.

These can be life-saving for dry or sensitive skin, nurturing the epidermis and alleviating redness and itchiness.

Packed With Antioxidants

Many skincare products are enriched with a variety of ingredients that are jam-packed full of antioxidants like green tea extract, vitamin E and rosehip oil, which can each provide nutrition for the skin.

Moreover, antioxidants attack those pesky free radicals which contribute to the destruction of your skin’s cells, which also helps to support the healing process. Green tea extract is especially abundant in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it a powerful tool to have in your arsenal.

No Harsh Chemicals

Although we’ve touched on the gentle nature of organic shower gels, it’s worth doubling down to remind ourselves why avoiding harsh chemicals is important for those with sensitive skin.

As well as causing breakouts and severe irritation, harsh chemicals can strip the skin of its natural oils, which only serves to harm the skin further.

Conversely, with organic shower gel, the absence of harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances is a real game-changer for sensitive skin. In most cases, organic products tend to be free from sulphates, parabens and phthalates, all of which can cause allergic reactions and make the cleansing experience a hazardous one!

Environmentally Conscious

As well as being beneficial for skin health, organic skin care products also espouse environmentally conscious practices. So if you’re concerned about the ecological impact of your skincare products then this is another reason to go organic.

By opting for natural, sustainably sourced ingredients and eco-friendly production methods organic products lessen their environmental impact, promoting not just better skin but a healthier planet too!

Costly Production

Organic farming for the ingredients used in these products involves a lot of hard work. Instead of using chemicals, farmers will often pull out weeds by hand and use natural ways to keep pests away. 

They also take extra care of the soil. Even though these methods are good for the environment and make healthier ingredients, they need more time and effort. 

This extra work increases the cost of making organic skincare products. But, it also means you get products with much fewer chemicals and less impact on the environment, so many consumers will feel this is a price worth paying.

Cost Of Certifications

Another aspect of producing organic products that will incur higher costs is obtaining organic certification. To be certified organic, our products must meet strict standards and go through regular inspections. 

This process involves a lot of paperwork, fees and an adherence to specific guidelines. While these certifications ensure the authenticity of organic claims, the expenses involved contribute to the overall higher price of organic skincare. 

Again, though, many of our customers see this as a cost worth paying as they know their skincare products are high quality and kind to both their skin and the environment.

So those are the main reasons organic products are better – and more expensive! As you can see, a lot more work goes into producing these products, and they’re packed with premium ingredients that cost more to produce and source.

So the next time you’re browsing organic natural moisturisers and you notice they cost quite a bit more than those cheap, non-organic alternatives, now you know why!
