The Skin Is The Body’s Largest Organ
Since we know that 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies, we only use 100% pure and natural ingredients. This is particularly important for children and those with sore and sensitive skin. It is of even greater significance for tender, new skin. Natural Origin have developed a range of pure and natural products to care for your skin no matter how sensitive it might be.
Many skin care ingredients are absorbed through the skin and it has been proved that certain chemicals can increase this absorption rate, which means more chemicals enter the body. Parabens and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate have been the subject of health scares in the press. Following these scares many people are now looking for skin care products with more natural
ingredients. Living in an ever increasing toxic world, it is vital that we minimise these risk in every way possible.
