Is Organic Skincare Really Worth It?

That’s a question you might be asking yourself in this challenging economy. I mean, let’s face it, who hasn’t had to make at least some minor lifestyle changes, right? Let’s dive into what sets organic products apart, and we’ll let you decide for yourself. 

Improved Regulation

One of the most significant benefits of using organic and natural skin care products is their improved regulation. What does that mean exactly? For products to be labeled as organic,” they must meet different regulations than nonorganic products. For example, products are restricted in what they can add and must follow tight guidelines. The operations that produce the organic agricultural ingredients, the handlers of these agricultural ingredients, and the final product manufacturer must all be certified by a USDA-accredited organic certifying agent. With that said, there are four organic labeling categories: 

  • 100 percent organic 
  • Organic
  • Made with organic ingredients
  • Less than 70 percent organic ingredients (This states it doesn’t meet the requirements and is therefore NOT organic.)

If you’d like to explore the nitty gritty of each, you can do that here.

Let’s break it down like this…you get peace of mind knowing you aren’t rubbing pesticides or other harsh chemicals all over your body. You’re trying to be beautiful, not unhealthy! As a bonus to going organic, natural products provide long-term results! 

Better for the Environment 

Ok, here’s one for our beloved tree-huggers (we’re right there with you; the Escape crew is one big happy tree-hugging family!) Organic products are also better for the environment. Because organic farms are regulated in the United States, they must follow strict regulations to protect the wildlife and biodiversity in the area. This means your skincare products won’t harm the soil, water, or air. Another simple way to lower your environmental impact!

Avoid Allergic Reactions

Finally, investing in organic skincare and treatments can help you avoid unpleasant allergic reactions. Because these products do not have the same harsh chemicals that can be found in other common beauty products, you do not have to worry about hurting your sensitive skin. 

Skincare made from organic ingredients is less likely to lead to inflammation and irritations.
