5 Reason to Switch to Clean Beauty


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. 

5 Reason to Switch to Clean Beauty

  • Benefits of plant-based ingredients

    Having plant-based ingredients in cosmetics and skincare gives your skin plump hydration without the use of nasty chemicals. This is why Aisling Organics uses aloe vera as one of its ingredients. The benefits of Aloe Vera on the skin are due to its chemical composition. It's made up of hydrating polysaccharides which are hygroscopic -  meaning they are water-loving and provide a type of moisture mesh over the skin. Plant-based ingredients can be used to calm redness, exfoliate, lighten skin, and boost antioxidants.

  • FDA doesn't regulate ingredients used in cosmetics and skincare

    Since 1938, no major law has been passed by Congress to regulate the thousands of products that are being used daily by consumers. The FDA has not made any significant progress in banning harmful chemicals - meaning they might be on your skin right now. The FDA does not require companies to provide safety data on their products or test the safety of personal care products before they are marketed. This means it's up to the consumer to know and understand what they're putting on their skin. 

  • Fragrance can contain up to 3,000 chemicals

Everyone loves a great scent. When was the last time anyone asked what ingredients were in their favorite perfume? The fragrance industry is by law protected due to trade secret laws, therefore ingredients are not listed on labels. There could be over 3,000 chemicals packed into one scent, and you wouldn't even know because it would only be labeled as "perfume" on your ingredient label. The law is set up to protect the fragrance companies from having to tell you what ingredients they are using. This is unsettling, and hopefully, this topic has made question what you are spraying on your skin. Sadly, this area in the beauty industry will remain largely unanswered. 
  • Free of animal testing

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. 

  • It takes 30 seconds for your skin to absorb toxic ingredients

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.
