Advantages of Environmentally Friendly Products in Skincare Products and Washing Detergent
Environmentally friendly products are not only good for the environment; they are also safer choices for our health. Frequently used products like washing detergent and skincare products are traditionally loaded with toxic chemicals which are harmful to the environment and our bodies. Environmentally friendly products are a great option for protecting both.
Washing detergent is one of the worst culprits of toxic chemicals. Residues of these chemicals left on clothes and linens can be absorbed into your skin, causing a host of potential health issues. Millions of tons of washing detergent are used every day, contaminating groundwater, lakes, and oceans.
Traditional washing detergent contains phosphates. High phosphate levels kill life in rivers, streams and oceans by causing “algae blooms” that are dense enough to suffocate marine life. Washing detergent is one of the silent killers that could destroy some of the most scenic and valuable water sources. Fortunately, many countries have banned phosphates from washing detergent.
Not only are chemicals a concern, but washing detergent often comes in bulky plastics that are considered hazardous waste, so they cannot be recycled. Fortunately, there are environmentally friendly products that don’t sacrifice quality.
Washing detergent made with plant and mineral ingredients are far healthier and safer for consumers and the environment. Those that are biodegradable and contain no brighteners, dyes or artificial fragrances are the most environmentally friendly products.
Traditional skincare products also have a harmful impact on the environment and our health by ending up in rivers and waterways. The exposure of skincare products may even be more harmful than exposure to pesticides since they are constantly infused into our environment. Bulky packaging of skincare products is also an environmental concern.
Natural skincare products are environmentally friendly products; if they end up down our drains, they won’t contaminate important water sources. Environmentally friendly products for skin care use organic ingredients so are far safer than chemical products. Beyond health benefits, most natural skincare products are sold in recyclable containers so do not end up in polluted landfills.
Environmentally friendly products protect wildlife as well as our environment and health. Natural skincare products are animal friendly, unlike traditional brands that often use animals for testing. There are many advantages to choosing environmentally friendly products every day of your life, from the washing detergent you use to wash your clothes to the skincare products you use to nourish you body.
