Here are the top reasons why we believe that you should invest in handmade skincare products made by small businesses (cough, cough):
- You’ll know exactly what’s going into your products.
There’s almost no regulation of the skincare industry regarding what they can put in their products and how they can describe it on their labels.
When you buy handmade skincare products, you’re supporting a small business who has far less to hide than a giant corporation. In general, handmade skincare products are not adding synthetic chemicals to their products and are in fact proud of the natural ingredient list that they include. Because of this, you’ll know exactly what’s going in each product and therefore on your skin.
2. They’re gentler on your skin.
Small skincare companies producing handmade products (in general) do not have the capacity or desire to use synthetic ingredients and chemicals. Without the use of these chemicals, the ingredients that are left are ones that are closer to nature.
Taking care to use natural ingredients is extremely beneficial for your skin especially when dealing with common skin ailments. Did you know that extra virgin olive oil has been used on the skin for centuries; starting with the ancient Romans?
3. No animals are harmed in the making of handmade skincare products.
Commercial, mass produced skincare products oftentimes have to test their ingredients on animals to make sure that they are safe for human use. These large manufacturers are only focused on one thing: their bottom line.
Small skincare businesses, in general, are more concerned with human and animal welfare. Handmade, natural skincare products are for you if not testing on animals is important to you when it comes to how you choose where to spend your money.
