One of the most popular skincare products that everyone almost always reaches for is moisturizers. But how many of us take the time of the day to find out the content of this product? How safe are these commercialized products when compared to natural moisturizers?
SafeCosmetics has compiled a list of chemicals to avoid in beauty products and named it “Red List.” The chemicals are connected to long-term health concerns like cancer and reproductive problems.
With the risk and the number of moisturizers we use every day, it’s the right time to consider shifting to cleaner and more natural moisturizers that offer the same texture and results as the conventional and commercialized ones.
We have a whole load of reasons why we should switch to plant-based skincare products, one of them is that it is more healthy for our skin (also the most important reason of all!).
