Clean beauty has been a recent craze in the last few years as people are starting to pay more attention to what they're putting into their bodies. Most of the conventional makeup products you have in your makeup bag came from the drug store, mall, or well-known online store. Do you really know the ingredients in those products or the long-term harm they might be causing? Making the switch to clean beauty means you'll be IN THE KNOW about what you're putting on your skin that's being absorbed into your bloodstream.
Making the switch definitely shouldn't be an overnight process - but it's something that should happen NOW. Making the switch to clean beauty means you're putting healthy and natural ingredients in your body that promote optimal well-being so you don't have to sacrifice health or beauty, or beauty for health.
The main way to tell if a product is not tested on animals is if it's labeled as "cruelty-free' on the label. Also, if you have a cosmetic product that is from China - it is REQUIRED that it's tested on animals before production. The Leaping Bunny Guide is a list of cruelty-free brands compiled by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics. The #BeCrueltyFree campaign is known all over the country to spread awareness to stop animal cruelty in all countries.
Our skin is the largest organ on our body which is why we need to take care of it with natural ingredients. It takes less than 30 seconds for any ingredient to be absorbed into our skin and make its way into the bloodstream. Skin is an amazing organ, and it is equipped with enzymes to attack unknown chemicals. Every chemical or ingredient has its purpose within the skincare or cosmetics. Therefore, they all act differently once they are absorbed. Some of these ingredients are made toxic by the exact enzymes equipped to attack unknown chemicals. Aisling Organic's ingredients are SAFE for skin absorption because they are naturally derived and made to deliver only benefits to the skin.
