Content Editor: Alice On
Do you have sensitive skin? If so, whats your type? There are many factors that effect skin. Emotional and environmental factors can trigger sever reactions in sensitive skin - stressor like weather conditions, family, pets, dust or skin care products can result in skin flare ups. Some people become allergic to something that they had no previous issues with for many years. Skin can become allergic to a substance after repetitive exposures or with just one exposure. Allergen tests can help reveal general triggers in your diet or allergies caused by things like dust mites.
if you have irritant Contact Dermatitis, Allergic Contact Dermatitis, Rosacea, Urticaria, or other more severe skin conditions it is best to consult a physician to understand your options for skin care procedures and get support on implementing changes in your daily life to give your skin the love it deserves.
1. What are Organic Skin Care Products and Cosmetics Exactly?
#If you’re suffering from skin sensitivity, I recommended looking for organic detergent products - products with mild detergents (composed over 95% with natural ingredients). But not everything labeled “Natural” is organic! One of the world’s leading expert on “organic certification” is Ecocert. The certification ensures cosmetics are produced in respects to the following points:
production and processing processes respectful of the environment and human health
development of the concept of green chemistry
responsible use of natural resources
respect for biodiversity
absence of petrochemical ingredients (excluding authorized preservatives): parabens, phenoxyethanol, perfumes and synthetic dyes
absence of GMOs
A beauty product is COSMOS ORGANIC certified if:
At least 95% of the plants it contains are organic
20% minimum of organic ingredients are present in the formula in total (10% for products to be rinsed)
