Organic-based products are gradually becoming popular these days. Not only are they mostly available but they are also safe because their ingredients or the materials used to manufacture them does not involve a lot of harmful chemicals. The same applies to organic tanners. Some of the things that you should learn about organic tanners are:
Parabens are a family of preservatives which can affect the body’s endocrine system which is responsible for the production of the body’s hormones. And according to scientific studies, there are some parabens that has the capability to become similar to estrogen.
Gets rid of 1, 4-Dioxane
The problem with most tanning products these days is that they sometimes have 1, 4-dioxane which is used when it comes to the chemical conversion of products. In addition, it is not listed as an ingredient thus consumers are not aware of the possible side-effects that it can cause the human body. In fact, some scientific studies have proven that 1, 4-dioxane has caused cancer in animals and as of the present, it is still researched if it has any harmful effects on the human body.
Plant-Based Oil Scents
A lot of people across the world tend to experience skin allergies due to a product’s smell particularly those who have asthma. That is why organic tanners are becoming more popular because their scents are natural and they do not trigger allergies to those who use them.
No Animal Testing
A number of tanning companies would claim that they do not use animals to test their products and unless they have certification or logos that verify this, one is not sure if they are telling the truth. This is where organic self tanners gain the advantage because they have certification which can prove that they do not test their products on animals.
USDA Organic Seal
There are organic self tanners out there but still use at least 30% of synthetic material when they are manufacturing their products. The best way to identify if a product is genuinely organic is to look for the USDA Organic Seal on the label. This ensures that the product you are purchasing is manufactured organically which means that there are no harmful chemicals used like pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or anything similar.
Despite these facts, most organic self tanners still use inorganic ingredients or materials when being manufactured because chemicals are still the ones responsible when it comes to giving a person a tanned appearance. The difference between organic self tanners and inorganic self-tanners is the amount of inorganic chemicals being used to manufacture them.
