Why is it important to use certified organic skincare?
At MAAEMO, all of our products are certified organic under the ACO certification body which ensures that each of our products have been created according to their strict regulations and high standards. Being certified organic means that the ingredients in our products have been grown and harvested without the use of harmful, toxic pesticides and herbicides that can be damaging to our bodies as well as the environment. This certification also ensures that the products are formulated with out the use of an extensive list of prohibited ingredients that could be potentially harmful to health.
Why should I change to certified organic skincare products?
When you make the change to organic skincare products, you’re doing something that benefits not only your own health, but the health of our environment. As consumers, most of us have an extensive list of cosmetics and personal hygiene products that we using every single day. Unfortunately many of these products that are so commonly used, are riddled with toxic chemicals and synthetic ingredients. The long term health effects of these ingredients are hard to define, but we do know that there have been studies linking many of these commonly used ingredients to endocrine dysruption and hormone dysfunction among many other health speculations. We are also seeing an increase in allergies and skin sensitivities which are likely to be connected to exposure of harsh ingredients and environmental pollution.
Many generic brands within the cosmetic industry are large contributors to environmental damage and have a negative impact on our planet. Many also still continue to test on animals. We encourage consumers to opt for certified organic brands not only to do something positive for their own health, but also for the health and wellbeing of the world around us.
