Why go organic? Is it really that important?
With so many families out there trying to live in a Toxic Free Home these days, there can be a long list of ingredients to avoid when it comes to what we find in everyday products. Ingredients such as Petrochemicals, talcum, synthetic fragrances and more, are all ingredients we are constantly trying to avoid. Having quality organic options when it comes to skincare and beauty, is therefore more important than ever for Australian families. Not to mention, your skin will LOVE you for it. Treating it with harsh chemicals is definitely not the way to age gracefully.
I mean, did you know that the average woman’s beauty routine can expose her to up to 100 different chemicals a day? These chemicals are potentially hazardous to our health with risks to the endocrine systems, reproductive system and hormonal issues as well as being linked to certain cancers due to carcinogenic ingredients.
On top of commercial products posing potentially harmful risks to our health, they are also causing damage to our environment.
This is why we love the Biologika range! Not only does Biologika offer a quality product that helps us to reduce the toxic range in our home, but it is also a brand that uses biodegradable packaging as well as manufacturing their products in a way that has the least impact on our environment. This also means that the soaps are grey water friendly and are strictly cruelty free too, so rest assured no bunnies were harmed in the making of their delicious smelly range of soaps. The skincare/ bathroom beauty industry is known to be one of the most destructive contributors to the plastic problem. In fact, it has been reported that it produces a whopping 120 billion units of plastic per year.
Made in Australia from Safflower oil, avocado oil and macadamia oil, you can only imagine how decadent this soap feels until you have tried it for yourself. The Biologika range is Certified Organic and scented with the finest essential oils.
Their range includes multiple of natural, eco friendly bars not wrapped in any sorts of plastics. Shampoos, Conditioners, Face Cleansers, Body Soaps etc.
