Seven Amazing Benefits of Non Toxic Products for Everyday Skincare

The cruelty-free and chemical-free cosmetics industry is estimated to increase to $14 billion by 2030!

Cruelty-free cosmetics have been popular since animal testing came to the forefront of the public’s mind in the 2000s. Non-toxic products, on the other hand, are a more recent trend in the West. 

The rise of all-natural Korean skincare brands paired with a growing awareness of harmful chemicals has fueled the movement. Now hordes of brands advertise their products as “chemical-free,” “all-natural,” and “non-toxic.”

But how beneficial actually is it to switch your skincare products for all-natural ones?

Non-toxic beauty products are still backed by science. And they aren’t necessarily chemical-free, but are free from harmful chemicals. 

Most importantly, non-toxic products aren’t just a fad. They are a mindful choice with incredible benefits and a rich history. Here are the top 7 reasons you should start using non-toxic cosmetics.

1. No Harmful Chemicals

As “chemical-free” suggests, non-toxic products have zero harmful chemicals in them. The cosmetics, whether they are for hair, skin, or body care, are made from natural ingredients. 

However, lots of marketing language isn’t regulated. That means we can’t blindly trust phrases like:

  • Natural
  • Clean
  • Non-toxic

Because they aren’t regulated, anyone can use them without scientific backing. How then can we make sure that the products we use are definitely all-natural?

We have to check the ingredients list. If you see any of these ingredients in a product, steer clear:

  • Sulfates
  • Benzophenone
  • BHA
  • BHT
  • Lead
  • Quaternium-15
  • Anything ending in -paraben
  • DEA
  • TEA
  • MEA
  • Phthalates

These are directly linked to cancer, reproductive issues, allergies, irritation, and are bad for the environment.

And this isn’t even a comprehensive list – just some warnings to get you started. For more information, see the Campaign for Safe Cosmetic’s list of ingredients to avoid.

2. Gentle on Skin

In removing harsh chemicals from the mix, natural cosmetic products are much gentler on our skin. 

Some people see that as a negative. They like the quick fix that harsh chemicals give them. What those consumers aren’t seeing is the long-term havoc that these chemicals wreak on our skin. 

Honestly, it may take a little longer before you see the effects of non-toxic products. But they are so much better for the skin and the body, not to mention safer.

In fact, the products working slightly slower is a positive. All-natural products focus on healing the skin from the inside out. That means the effects last longer!

Plus, the lack of chemicals also leads to less irritation. There’s no need to search for “sensitive-skin-friendly” products when you’re buying non-toxic ones. Everything is!

Less irritation, meaning less acne, as well as better-hydrated skin – there are so many benefits to using gentle products.

3. Kind to the Earth & Animals

As we’ve already mentioned, many cosmetic chemicals are bad for the environment. Non-toxic products don’t have that problem, as they’re all grown organically.

Plus, there’s no need for animal testing. When ingredients like olives, thermal mineral water, and wild berry oils are the core of a product, we know they’ll be safe.

4. More Effective

As we mentioned, some people stay away from organic products because they seem too gentle. But in the long run, they’re clinically proven to be more effective. 

For example, organically grown ingredients are high in anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants protect the body by dealing with “free radicals,” unstable atoms that damage our bodies.

Man-made chemicals just can’t compete in the anti-oxidant arena. 

Plus, natural ingredients are active ingredients. They have a real and measurable effect on our skin and hair. They are all chosen by manufacturers for their specific health benefits.

Rather than weighing up the pros of a toxic chemical with its cons, all-natural ingredients are all good news.

5. Rich Reliable History

Reassuringly, the non-toxic movement isn’t actually new. It’s not a trend that will soon be exposed for damaging side effects.

How can we know that for sure?

Because all-natural skincare has a long history of success – going back to ancient times!

As science advanced and we introduced harsh chemicals to our cosmetics, we thought we were improving on these traditional methods and ingredients. 

In the end, that wasn’t true. So it’s time to go back to basics.

Ingredients like green tea, berries, mung beans, and geothermal mineral water have been used for millennia to cleanse and hydrate. Their effectiveness has been proven time after time.

6. Natural Fragrance

Fragrance is an issue in the cosmetic world. That’s because it presents a far too tempting loophole for cosmetic companies. 

Manufacturers are not required to divulge fragrance ingredients.

According to the International Fragrance Association, over 3,000 chemicals are used in fragrances, many of which are suspected carcinogens.

However, when you buy non-toxic body care products, you don’t need to worry. All of the ingredients are disclosed, even the ones that fragrance the product.

You can rest assured that the natural fragrance comes from a safe source. And you’ll still smell amazing!

7. More Cost-effective

If the products are more effective, you’ll need to buy less of them. It’s as simple as that!

Toxic product manufacturers can’t overstuff their products with chemicals for fear of causing damage. But non-toxic brands don’t have to worry! They can squeeze as many natural ingredients as they like into their products.

So even though they’re gentle, they’re more potent. That translates to better value for money.

Switch to Non-Toxic Products Today!

Non-toxic products were the past, and are the future. They’re cheaper, safer, more effective, gentler, more reliable, and environmentally friendly. 

As we said at the outset, the non-toxic market is booming. You can find exactly what you need for your skin type, hair type, and budget, even though you’re shopping all-natural.

To get started, take a look at our products. They are all clinically tested, non-toxic, and full of long-term benefits.

Clean

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claim visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”

Transparency

The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”

Sustainable

We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!

Technology

Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
