Is Clean Skincare Worth the Hype? 3 Reasons Why the Answer Is Absolutely Yes!


Whether you walk down the aisle of a Sephora or the beauty aisle in Target, you’re bound to get bombarded with products boasting about their commitment to clean beauty. But is clean skincare worth the hype it’s getting, or is it just a passing trend you’re safe to ignore?


As a consulting firm with extensive experience in the beauty industry, we’re confident in saying that skincare is ABSOLUTELY worth the hype. Products with harsh, harmful, or toxic ingredients can cause your body more harm than it may let on, and in this blog, we’re sharing with you three of the main reasons why clean skincare is not only worth the hype but why it’s one of the best gifts you can give your skin.


Supports Overall Health


Before clean beauty became the ideal standard, companies within the beauty industry had the run of the land when choosing the chemicals and ingredients to put within their products. Chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and even formaldehyde in extreme cases. Chemicals that, when placed on your skin, absorb into your bloodstream and could subsequently cause disastrous and even cancer-causing effects.


However, when you use clean skincare products, you’re using products committed to using clean or natural ingredients. Products that, when absorbed into your skin, will, at a minimum, reduce the amount of toxins you submit yourself to. Which could subsequently improve your overall health.


Reduces Irritation

Do you suffer from sensitive skin? Do you have difficulty finding skincare products that your skin reacts well to? Often, this happens because of the toxins within unclean skincare products. Fragrances, parabens, and other chemicals are seen as invaders to your skin, and because your skin doesn't know how to combat them, it reacts in unwelcome ways.

But when you start using clean skincare products, your chances of irritation could significantly reduce or even go away! This is not only because of the removal of harsh chemicals but because many clean skincare products are designed to work with the natural hormones and balances of your skin, which means they absorb easier and are more likely to support your skin's needs naturally.

Good for Mother Earth

While supporting healthy skin and overall health might be reason enough for clean skincare to be worth the hype, it’s worth mentioning the cherry on top of these benefits. Clean skincare products are good for the environment!

Most companies with a clean beauty standard are committed to reducing their carbon footprint, using sustainable or recyclable packaging, and not testing their products on animals. So simply by purchasing a product that’s better for you, you’re making choices that are better for mother earth.


Look Good, Feel Great

While we’ll never underestimate the persuasive powers of a good marketing campaign, we hope we’ve helped you see that the hype is justified when it comes to clean skincare. By removing toxic chemicals, clean skincare can give you better results with an even broader impact.

It can make you look good and feel great, all while allowing companies to reduce their carbon footprint and do their part in cultivating a healthier and cleaner world.
