Why are natural cosmetics better?
I believe that the best skin care is skin-deep care. Not only to look better, but also to feel and act better.
-1- NATURAL AND EFFECTIVE
Natural cosmetics are effective and provide quick results. Over time, the advertising industry came up with the stereotype that synthetic molecules have certain magical properties and are therefore more potent. But the main active substances that affect the skin, such as vitamins, antioxidants, proteins, enzymes or, for example, hyaluronic acid, come from natural sources. Both human and plant cells belong to the same group of cells and use the same active substances to maintain life. Therefore, cosmetics made from natural raw materials have the highest concentration of biologically active substances.
Plant antioxidants provide powerful anti-aging protection, polysaccharides moisturize, and fatty acids in natural oils nourish the skin. Instead of chemical synthesis, the active ingredients used in natural cosmetics are derived from natural ingredients using innovative extraction and processing methods.
-2- THE BASIS IS SAFETY
Natural cosmetics are made using natural and organic raw materials, which are generally safer for both the human body and the environment. Many raw materials from chemical synthesis negatively affect human health and the environment. Since the boom of the chemical industry in the 1950s. In the 1990s, more than 100,000 new synthetic formulations used in cosmetics and household products entered the market. However, the safety of these chemicals has never been properly tested. For example, it has been scientifically proven that parabens, which are widely used as preservatives, bind to estrogen receptors and disrupt the endocrine system. It only takes a small dose of parabens for the body to trigger a biochemical reaction. The highest plasma concentration of parabens was observed 3 hours after applying the cosmetic product to the entire body. Parabens have also been observed in breast milk. Substances derived from chemical synthesis always contain various impurities, such as by-product generation and trace amounts of solvents and reagents. Some amount of these impurities will always be in the cosmetic product, as it is technologically impossible to separate them completely. Some of these substances can have highly undesirable effects even at very low concentrations. Effects can be neurotoxic, mutagenic or teratogenic, where chemical contaminants negatively affect skin cells locally, as well as systemically throughout the body. However, the natural ingredients are carefully selected and developed to ensure maximum performance and safety.
-3- FREE OF GMO AND NANOPARTICLES
Raw materials for natural cosmetics are obtained without the use of substances from genetically modified organisms, nanoparticles or irradiation, due to conflicting research on the safety of such raw materials. Another major issue that has been the subject of much international discussion is related to the risks and benefits of genetically modified plants. These risks include adverse effects on the environment and living organisms.
Ingredients of natural origin degrade quickly in nature, thus reducing pollution of water bodies and the environment. For example, the microparticles found in synthetic scrubs, toothpastes and other products do not break down once they enter bodies of water, but accumulate toxic substances on the surface. Fish living in these waters eat toxic sludge. The synthetic particles and various other chemicals then pass through the food chain and end up in people’s diets.
-5- CLEANER PRODUCTION
Production of natural cosmetics is cleaner and more environmentally friendly. Raw materials are extracted and processed without the need for a series of chemical reactions that are harmful to the environment and the human body (such as halogenation, irradiation or mercury treatment). Clean production means responsible use of natural resources and careful treatment of the environment at all stages of production.
-6-PACKAGING VS. RECYCLING
Natural cosmetics should use recyclable packaging. Many forms of plastic packaging are not recycled at all or have limited recyclability. Manufacturers of organic cosmetics are increasingly beginning to use recyclable packaging.
BIOSOMA natural cosmetics contain highly active natural ingredients. The main raw material for production is certified cold-pressed vegetable oils. The cosmetics are packaged in glass and paper, which is FSC-certified.
