Because sixty percent or more of what you put on your skin ultimately ends up in your bloodstream via your cells, you can never be too careful about what you put on your skin. It just makes good sense to read all labels and be aware of all the toxic ingredients that commercially manufactured body care products include in their ingredient list. A “natural” label on a product does not mean that a product is “organic”. In fact, multitudes of skin care products labeled “all natural” or “natural” contain toxic chemicals. Over-the-counter skin care and body care products’ manufacturers are counting on you not knowing the difference. I have included the definition of “organic” in this article. Essential Oils obtained from plants are a large part of my formula and are pure and/or organic. Here at ToniOrganics I take great satisfaction in knowing that no toxic or harmful preservatives, chemicals, fragrances or dyes have been incorporated into any of my products. Because I make all of my products myself, I know exactly what is put in each one. All of ToniOrganics’ products are primarily oil based originating from plants and herbs grown organically; and, unlike your over the counter manufactured skin moisturizers that for the most part are water based, water downed, and laced with toxic chemicals, my products will give a healthy glow and feel to your skin when used routinely in a matter of days. Lavender Oil, the Essential Oil extracted from the Lavandula or Lavender plant is one of the many natural fragrances I use in my products because it has a beautiful fragrance and is very user friendly. Lavender essential oil also has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, making it an ideal choice to include in my body creams and lotions.
Another favorite of mine that I often use in my body creams and lotions is Citris Sinensis or Sweet Orange Essential Oil, which is extracted from the peel of orange fruits and smells like the orange peels the oil is extracted from. Along with it’s delicious fragrance, Sweet Orange essential oil has antimicrobial and anti inflammatory effects, making it another wonderful natural choice to include in ToniOrganics skin cream creations. While the essential oils that I use in my products are for the most part user friendly, I always advise people to do a small skin patch test to make sure you are not allergic to any of the natural oils in your body creams before applying on a larger body area. While it is unlikely that an allergic reaction will occur, just because a product is organic and natural does not mean that an allergic reaction cannot occur and to always keep your products out of the reach of children and pets.
