Most cosmetics contain chemical ingredients and even in small amounts, these carry serious health risks for users. Regular exposure to ingredients like paraffin, propylene glycol, formaldehyde and parabens can give rise to allergies and respiratory problems. Some of these chemicals are known to be cancer-causing, while others could potentially disrupt sexual development and weaken the immune system.
Rise of Ayurvedic cosmetic products – the natural alternative
With growing awareness consumers are increasingly seeking out ayurvedic skincare, facial, haircare and body care products with natural ingredients. These ayurvedic cosmetic products, derived from nutritious herbs and oils, support healthy detox to soothe the scalp, face and skin. Such natural personal care preparations are informed by India’s more than 3,000-year-old whole-body healing system of medicine, i.e. Ayurveda. What is most reassuring is that the chance of seeing side effects is almost nil and Ayurvedic products are not just better for you, but for the environment as well.
