To use 100% organic and clean products

Some of the products I am using have preservatives, and other non organic ingredients that I maybe I should simplify or switch brands. I’m trying to keep my skin super hydrated, and combat early signs of aging while breastfeeding.

Hello there! 👋 unfortunately, “clean” products is a marketing stunt. All products that contain water (and most do, and need to) need preservatives. Products marketed as “clean” contain them too. Preservative-free products would have a risk of serious bacterial contamination, and it wouldn’t be safe to use them.

The good news is that means there is no need to pay more for products that claim they are “clean”. They are no better than others (they can be excellent of course - but not because they are “clean” or organic, but because they have a good overall formulation and actives). It’s important to check the exact ingredient risk to make sure the product doesn’t contain ingredients that can be irritating for you. It is individual, but most common irritants are specific kind of preservatives (formaldehyde-releasing ones, luckily they are used quite rarely in facial skincare today, but they are still used), essential oils and fragrances (both natural and synthetic).

I personally avoid skincare marketed as “organic” because it is likely to be more harmful for the environment. We need more farm land and water to grow anything organically. Most (if not all) materials need to go through a lot of chemical processes before they can be used safely in skincare, so by the time something is in a skincare bottle, it really doesn’t make a difference whether it was grown organically or not… of course, it’s a personal choice, but just wanted to share as a food for thought!
