Let me share with you the top 7 myths and misunderstandings that I hear about green beauty. I hope to enterlighten you with those as well 😉
Welcome to my Top 7 Green Misunderstandings Hitlist:
#5 IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE 😦
Not if you don’t overdo.
#4 IT’S 100 % SAFE & HYPOALLEGENIC
Safe? Well yes and no.
Essential oils and plant extracts are very powerful – some to an extent that they are “verboten” for pregnant women.
On the other hand, read #6.
Hypoallergenic – not necessarily: mother nature is a source of strong allergens.
#3 I LOVE GREEN! I USE *insert greenwashed brand name here* ALL THE TIME!
Read. Link. Number. Six.
#2 IT CONTAINS NO CHEMICALS
Newsflash: everything around us is chemical. Duh!
What we want to avoid though are toxic synthetics – preservatives, colorants, emulsifiers, fillers…
#1 IT HAS NO ANTI-AGING IMPACT FOR MATURE SKIN
Essential oils (rose, evening primrose) and plant extracts and oils (broccoli seed) deliver fantastic results. Brands like Dr Alkaitis, May Lindstrom, Tata Harper, Josh Rosebrook – to name a few – offer the cleanest formulas for the most effective anti-aging.
