In recent years, there’s been an upsurge in awareness surrounding organic products, from produce and other food items to beauty and self-care. In an effort to be more conscious and healthy, we’re becoming more and more aware of what we eat and use. But when’s the last time we asked ourselves...
🌿 Is organic really healthier?
Our bodies and health are affected by so many internal and external factors, some we can control and others we cannot. From the thoughts we think and the air we breathe to the foods we eat and the moisturizers we apply, and even down to the products we use on the most intimate parts of our bodies, these factors play a significant role in our lives.
While eating organic foods and applying natural makeup has become quite the norm, many are unaware of the benefits from using organic feminine care products. Lawmakers and consumers alike have been demanding transparency from major brands, but bills advocating for women’s health are constantly denied and, unfortunately, the FDA doesn’t regulate ingredients listed in product packaging.
🤔 Did you know?
Many recent studies found toxic chemicals and harmful ingredients in non-organic feminine care products? These ingredients include, just to name a few:
👎 Styrene, also used in car tires
👎 Chloromethane, also used in petroleum refining
👎 Acetone, most commonly known as nail polish remover
👎 Chlorethane, also used in styrofoam
👎 Various carcinogens, which is linked to cancer
